Appreciate any feedback.
Some good feedback above. Recently bought a new Hybrid Bike (had two lower back surgeries myself; suspension fork helps with jolts from frost heaved roads, potholes, going off curbs, etc.). Had it fitted at BikeSource in Highlands Ranch. They carry Specialized Bikes (Road, Mountain, Cyclocross, Hybrids, Commuters, etc.). I was fitted the old-fashioned way since my back has recovered nicely and doesn't need any special fitting conditions. But this Shop has a dedicated Fitter (doesn't sell, just Fits full-time) who my Son has used for his Roubaix Road Bike and raves about him. They also offer a "fully computerized fitting" that analyzes posture, pedaling motions, etc. and shows best fittings for efficiency, minimizing knee and other injuries, etc. It costs $300 I think. They have a video of the process on their Denver web-site (Google "Specialized Bikes" or "BikeSource" in Denver).
