Bike fitting in Central Ohio?
I've been commuting to/from work for about 2 years now, an easy ride of about 5 miles. Since this spring I've started riding after work, or taking the long way home.
But, whenever I ride for more than 40 minutes, or more than about 10 miles, I get a lot of back and crotch pain; to the point that I have to stop riding for a few minutes.
I really enjoy riding, and would like to be able to ride more.
So, I've been doing a lot of reading, on these forums and other places; and it seems to be a matter of bike fit. I'm about 6'3", riding a 60cm '91 Trek 1700 road bike. I have a longer than average torso, and my left leg is longer than my right leg.
From my perusing, it seems that my pain/discomfort is related to main things:
1. I'm too tall for a 60cm frame.
2. The leg length difference
So, my question is (finally), do y'all have any suggestions as to where I can go for a bike fit in Central Ohio (I live in Columbus)? I'd like to work with someone who has experience/knowledge of fitting "abnormal" bodies.
Go to Bike Source in Westerville or Bicycle One in Gahanna. They will take care of you.
Bike Source in either Westerville or the one at Bethel & Sawmill. I got a fit at the one off Bethel and they did a nice job. I have one leg that is about a quarter inch longer than the other and have tried a number of things and nothing has worked other than slowly building up my mileage and maintaining that base.
You could also try Tritech multisport on Huntley. They did a nice job for me and can set you up on a road or tri bike.
