How much does a bike fitting usually cost?

Hello everyone. My uncle bought me a road bike(my first road bike) anyways I cant quite get it feeling comfortable, and the LBS has a guy that does bike fittings for $75 I'm debating going to him(he just got done doing some kind of training for bike fitting). He said he would even help me get my clipless pedals setup right. I thought this was alittle expensive but I haven't asked the other LBS yet.

So I was just wondering what the usual cost for a basic bike fitting was.

Thanks

In my experience, that is about the norm for a non professional/race fitting. Does the guy also do free follow-ups to do further adjustments if necessary?

A non-professional fitting is usually done at no cost when a bike is purchased. Did you take advantage of that? The free fitting may get you more comfortable on the bike. Then after riding for a few weeks you can pay for a fitting.
If you buy the shoes or cleats from the same shop the free fitting usually includes getting your cleats adjusted correctly.

Mine was $150. But that's a two+ hour fitting on fit bike as well as your measurements taken, your pedaling style and endurance, gait of your walk, discussion with my doctor (back issues) as well as finding out specific needs for my cycling style. The price was deducted off of the price of the frame.

m bike shop charges 80 (i think) but will credit that amt toward the purchase of a bike. since you already have the bike, i would go back to the shop from which it came and see if you can negotiate something with them.

Bike shops around here do it for free if you buy a bike or anything that might affect the fitting (i.e. saddle, pedals, shoes, etc.). I've never paid for a fitting or future adjustments.
