Most of my LBS's offer a custom fitting and they're not cheap. Been a while since I asked, but I think they seem to run about $150 around here -- maybe more, I can't remember.
My quesion is: if one has a custom fitting done, is the information that is produced something that one can then apply to any/all bikes, or is the fitting typically done for a specific bike or frame? Seems like if the outcome is a generic report, I could then do research on the internet for the frames that would best fit me, and then test ride only those bikes.
Then when I settle on a particular bike it should be easy to complete the dialing in process, no?
