Need a referral for good shop to get fitted at.

I'd like to get feedback from any of you who have had a recent fitting and had a good experience with it. I live in LA, (Mid Wilshire). I need to get fitted for my new bike, but I wanted to get a referral before choosing a shop and scheduling an appointment. If you know the name of the person who did your fitting, and he/she was great to work with, all the better.
Thanks much.

I recommend Nate Loyal. He works out of Helen's S.M. ( on Broadway ). If you do a search here I'm sure you'll find several recommendations for him.

+1. He helped eliminate my upper back and big toe pain.

Ron Peterson at Cynergy Cycles in Santa Monica was great also. Make sure you schedule in at least 1.5 hours to do a complete fitting. Personally, best $$ I spent on cycling to date (other than the bike).

Thanks much for the quality referrals.
As a bar owner, I know 1st hand there's no promotion more effective than word-of-mouth.
