Specialized BG system

Anyone used this? If so, in your opinion, do you think it worth it? And do you think that a person would be daft if they walked in with a different brand of bike and ask them to make the fit adjustments?

You should probably call first, but I'm guessing they'd be happy to have you pay them to get your bike fitted properly.

The fit specialist at my LBS went through the Specialized BG training, but they'll do a fitting on any bike (whether purchased at their shop or elsewhere). You're paying a fee for the service, your LBS would only be reducing their potential market if they only perform fittings for a certain make of bike.

Ya, I'm going to the one LBS (let's call this one A) in town that I know that has a BG certified tech (actually, they have 2 now). It's going to feel a little awkward asking to be fitted to a bike that I got at another LBS (let's call this one B) around the corner from LBS-A.
