I'm thinking of spending money to get my bike professionally fitted. I got a weird physiological proportion, so i would like some help from a pro.

I guess any bike shop is capable of doing tune ups, but I don't think that's the case for fitting. Any recommendation in portland maine? If needed, I'm willing to travel as far as boston, if it's worth the trip.

I have been fitted by Back Bay Bikes, an excellent shop in Boston. They have a sister shop in Portsmouth, NH called Papa Wheelies (same owner, who lives up there).

Good luck, I hope you find a shop doing fittings.
Many are not doing 'full' fittings currently, due to the COVID 19 adventure. That include two shops I use, 1 in Kennebunk and 1 in Dover NH.

You might be able to get a basic fitting somewhere, though
