Bike fitting in mid michigan

I'd like to go to a good shop and get my bike fit that I bought locally. Can anyone recommend a shop in the michigan area?

I've had fitting work done at Kinetic Systems in Clarkston and at Two Wheel Tango in Ann Arbor. A friend of mine has recommended Matt Assenmacher's in Swartz Creek, Michigan. I think there is a pretty good shop in downtown Holland, MI as well.

Riverfront Cycle in downtown Lansing only charges $40 for a "casual fit". No fancy tools or videos or anything. Just a knowledable dude with a plumb bob and a level. Sorted me out perfectly. Best $40 I ever spent.

Road Fan - Sorry for the late response. How did you like the fit at Two Wheel Tango. Did you get the BG FIT @ 200$?

No, I didn't. I paid $200, but it was not value-add. Only one fitting has been worth it, and that was at a now-drfunct shop in Saline. Not a knowledgeable guy with a plumb line, but a knowledgeable guy with good equipment.

At this point I think I'd check out the Riverside shop in Lansing, or just continue to sort myself out.

Thanks for the suggestions. Ending up going to Two Wheel Tango. Got my bike fit by a woman named Jess. She did an awesome job. Bike fits fantastic

I purchased my bike from Continental in Hazel Park...nostaligic because we went there as kids. An initial fitting followed by a "tune-up" at 300 miles is included in the standard price of the bike and it was fantastic. Great guys and nice old school shop I would highly recommend.

When I had it done in the past I couldn't get on Jess's schedule. I've known her at the shop for a number of years and have seen her learn and grow. Maybe I'll be specific about getting on her schedule.

I do know it takes knowledge, talent, skill, and rapport. I'm not too bad at solving a few of my own problems, but I know it's still not right.
