Coming back to Vancouver from SEA is always price shock (it's even higher than USA). There are one or two professional bike fitters that use eight tools plus a lot of experience and even have an attached physiotherapy clinic with sports medicine specialist - but I could spend almost the price of my bike on the fancy video tests.
Example prices (not counting 14?% sales tax)...
60-90 minute fit CAD150
120 min fit on 'Guru' CAD300
'Retul' motion capture $250
Same sports physiotherapist in a suburb, Tara Lazarski offers fits for $250, followups at $150
Physio Bike Fit, North Vancouver, BC
Catalyst Kinetics, Burnaby, BC
My question is since I am travelling anyway, where are great deals on bike fitting? I see only cheap inadequete ones and top quality expensive ones. My goal is to find Enhlish-speaking countries with lower labour costs. Hey multi-national corporations do it with globalized manufacturing, so why not me with retail services? I already do it with medicine (India), 'nightlife' (Philippines), real estate shopping (Vietnam), and banking (Cambodia). Perhaps there is a Shangri-la for cyclists on a budget.
