I'll add my vote for UCDMC. I liked that they look carefully at the type of riding you do before they start taking measurements and adjustments. I do very long rides at moderate speed. (I'm training for 600+ km rides.) That's a different setup than a TT rider. They take that kind of stuff into consideration when they adjust the bike.
My only warning is to be careful with implementing their suggestions all in one fell swoop. They made some radical changes to my cleat location on my shoes based on recent studies that show ultra distance riders get better efficiency having the cleats very far back. It was a lot more stable and felt great until that weekend's 100 mile ride. I had never ever experienced hamstring pain until that weekend. At mile 20 I adjusted the pedals back to their original position and the pain was gone in one mile.
If someone advises radical changes I suggest not having them make the change but implement it yourself in very small increments over time.
This of course goes for any fit, not just UCDMC.
