    Bike Fit in East Bay? Dublin Area?

    I think it's time to get properly fitted. Where's a good shop in the area? Friend suggest Dublin's Livermore Cyclery. I called and it's about $100.

    I'd say go to the Livermore Cyclery Livermore store. Have the owner, Steve Howard do it. He may be at the Dublin store sometimes - if so, that's cool. But make sure Steve does it. He knows his shizznit.

    I recommend calling up Rick Yu. Not sure if he'll go to Dublin, but he can meet you at your house. Here's more info:

    A friend was very happy with his fit at Dublin Cyclery. $100 for a basic fit. I haven't had a fit there, but I've been there for other things, IMO it is a good shop.

    Cool stem. What did you get for a product? Charts? CDROM? Video? Diagrams? Spreadsheets?

    Product. Humm.
    My bike is re-adjusted, I have specialized inserts in my shoes, and a new stem. I got a print out of all the measurements and analysis, with photos, sent to me as a PDF.

    The other part of the "product" — some sort of adaptive thing — is being researched. He has some interesting notions. We'll have to see what happens.

    It was all so very flippin' interesting. I wish I had audio of the whole thing.
