    La Bicicletta touts there ability pretty aggressively. $60 for the fitting applied to a purchase at the store if you like.

    Did it this morning. Turned out that my shoes/cleats, saddle, handle bars need to be adjusted! It feels totally different now, pedal strokes are more efficient. My upper body is relaxed now and S-Works shoes finally feel like they should

    Thanks!

    Sounds like $60 well spent!

    What about downtown? Any of the shops in the west downtown area ok? Or rather, are there any places I should avoid?

    $60 seems pretty reasonable though, might be worth the trip to La Bicycletta.

    The trip up? It's like 10km from downtown! Ride up there and see how much better you feel on the way home

    I opted to give Duke's a try. The guy who does the fittings is well known mechanic and local racer. He did a really good job! It worked out well because I ended up needing a different length stem and I got a straight swap because I had purchased the existing one there a short while ago.

    I was recently at La Bici to pick up a jersey though, great store with great staff. Riding on Dufferin sucks balls though.

    Winston at Cycle Cambridge does an excellent job though. Fitting's range in price though depending what you need! I left with a new stem, ergo grips, a seat / handlebar adjustment, and a much better feeling bike!
