Places for a bike fit in San Mateo Country (or surrounding area)?

I'm looking to get a bike fit, and I'm not sure where to go. Does anyone have experience with getting a fit in the San Mateo country and surrounding areas with a good report?

Thanks

I'd go to the Retul website (retul.com) and choose a fitter that uses this system; it removes a lot of user error and gives much more exact measurements.

If you don't mind going down to Cupertino you can try Matt of Sterling Sports. Here is Matt's email: [email protected] Tell him Gary Lee of the Bike Forums sent you. Not sure if that'll get you a hook up but it's worth a shot.

Here is my post on the fitting he did for me recently:
http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...772&highlight=

It was really comprehensive and he's a very cool guy. He not only worked on fitment on the bike but pedal efficiency as well for a better pedal stroke between the left and right foot. Worth the $$ imo!

Several people here have used Lorri Lee's fitting services and she's in San Mateo.

Now there's a thought ... getting a fitting by a velogirl.
