The equipment in the background looks like something out of wargames
My local shop has been talking about this for a while, hoping to see it at some point
You fit on the machine, which is adjustable in every way, then it lines up with lasers to the bike on certain points to duplicate the fit.
It looks like a university setup. I've seen similar at Georgia Tech in a research lab.
I've actually been on the Guru machine that's very similar to the one pictured above. It's very very cool. Totally adjustable as you're pedaling, hooked up to a spinscan / computrainer... it resulted in a pretty radical re-vamp of my road position, which I'm still using. Traditional ruler and rule of thumb fitting had me a lot further back and with longer and higher reach (old school position) and after an hour on the machine it was clear that I'm more powerful and more comfortable with the bars a lot closer and lower and the saddle much more forward and a tad higher. Anyway, I endorse the machine, it's one of the few fitting systems that I think is worth real money to try.

I'm in the middle of a custom fit on one of those machines in Los Angeles. They are really cool because as your riding they can change the domensions and you get real time feedback on whether it works or not. A couple of MM and you go from sweet spot to pain. I'll see if I can upload pictures when I go in for the final fit. I didnt have the right shoes and pedals which I was told makes the difference between accurate numbers and not.
wow. that's pretty damn cool. now i want to build one.
