    Bike fitting in Sacramento (help needed)

    Anyone have a recommendation for a specific person who specializes in bike fitting in the Sacramento area? I'm looking at a brochure for our Specialized concept store and I would rather get some input before just picking one blindly. I am just about positive I will need a new stem so going somewhere where I could be fit tested and buy/install needed equipment all in one stop would be ideal. I'm noticing pain in my neck, right shoulder, and the De Quervains in my left wrist is currently really painful. Of course, maybe one should expect this type of pain after doing a 135-miler two weeks ago and 93 last Saturday with a couple of small hammerfests peppered in between. My legs, feet and knees have never felt better. It's above the waist that's hurtin'...
    Help me!

    Mike's Bikes in Sacramento may be able to give you a hand with fitting. Not sure what they charge for a fitting...

    I had a good fitting at Wheelworks in Davis. They used to sell Specialized, so they could steer you towards a specific frame. Mike's Bikes does sell Specialized, but no idea if their fitting is good. UCD is a good choice.

    Had a somewhat less than satisfying experience with City Bikes in midtown for fitting, but I like the shop otherwise.

    I ride a Trek, it's just that Specialized concept shop is just in my neighborhood (the only shop near me actually). I've had mixed experiences at City Bicycle Works as well. Mike's Bikes also is mixed. I like the service manager Wayne but that shop sucks overall (I'd never set foot in there if it wasn't for their 20% off coupons).

    Here's the website for Davis Wheelworks. Joe & Kevin do their fitting-both are great.

    I already bought a new bicycle, and I chose the size that was recommended by the salesperson at my LBS. What happens if I pay for a proper fitting and discover the size frame I purchased was wrong?!

    I've been seeing Clayton Meeks. He's in Folsom, used to be at Bike's Plus, now at Body Concepts. 939-6800

    He's gotten rid of my knee pain (cleat and saddle position) and recommended some changes to the cockpit (stem/bars) that made a tremendous difference in my comfort. He's really helped me a lot.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Wayne is awesome. The other great mechanic there is Aaron. He goes way out of his way to help you.

    FWIW on the fit front, Kristi is supposed to be excellent at fitting. Allie at Mike's also knows fit very well.

    $95 for a fitting at Mike's Bikes.
    $150 for a 3d fit.
    $225 for a fit plus a flexibility test.
