    Hello everyone (from Santa Clara CA)

    Hi to all. I just joined the forum when I saw a posting for FitStik. I've been riding for about 4 years now. Over the years, two drivers have "interrupted" me, causing damage to my current bike. I'm now on the hunt to replace the bike and get back on the road.

    I'm trying to gather as much information on fitting as possible since I believe the bike I have was simply a sell without a good fit in mind. So, back to FitStik... If anyone in the South Bay Area on this forum has a FitStik I could borrow, or, has knowledge of a local bike shop that can provide a reliable and accurate fitting, I'm all ears.

    I also read about bikefitting.com, where a bike or recreational shop can do a complete bike fitting using the tool. However, what happens then? How does one find a bike frame meeting all the dimensions?

    Good to be on the forum. I hope to contriibute.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.
    Your best bet is to get a fit from a local bike shop.

    Bike Fit

    Hi 10Wheels.
    Thanks for the tip. I've come to the same conclusion. I did some research on the Web and found a tool used by local bike shop. The issue for me is I'm ready to trade-in my old ride. When I called they wanted me to bring in my existing bike for a fit. My preference is to get the fit and measurements then look for a frame/component combo fitting my geometries.

    Did you get a bike fit? Or what's your advice?

    Thanks again for replying.

    I bought a new bike and got a free fitting with it.
    The bike and me are a perfect match.

    You can copy your fit to another bike.
    I did that to a second bike I now ride.
