The OP hasn't stated any budget. Perhaps he is thinking to spend $1200 on a bike. Has he allocated 20% of that amount for one guy to give his opinion of the "correct" size bike for the OP. Or worse, if it's a "free" fitting, is it directed towards a particular size that that LBS has in stock?
I believe that the 1/2 hour, thirty minutes, that the OP might spend with an online fit calculator would "arm" him with a bit of knowledge to insure that the "fitter" is anywhere in the ballpark of the correct bike. No, it won't advise 2cm difference in bar width, 6% less of stem angle or if a 130 saddle would be better than a 143 saddle. But, he would know enough to know that if he wants to see a baseball game you don't go to a roller rink.
