Best place in OC to get fitting done?

I did a quick search but didn't come up with anything recent. Any suggestions for fittings, preferably in North OC. Thanks

This is who I used about a year ago, and I have no complaints about my fit to this day. It wasn't cheap, but months afterwards I realized it ended up being worth it since I was new and didn't really know how I should be positioned on a bike. In the future I can just transfer my fit to any new bikes, so consider it an investment.

It's on the border of Tustin and Orange, right near 'The Path' bike shop.

Bob Murphy at ARB4U in Irvine. Just had a "basic fit" done on Friday and he diagnosed and corrected my knee issue almost immediately. Very nice guy - took a lot of time not only to do the measurements but also to explain what the measurements mean. He also explained to me how to setup any bike correct to my measurements, which was really good for me because I travel and rent, and I never have my personal bike around to compare measurements.

He's Serotta certified and they also have some more advanced fitting and pedal stroke analysis options available.

Im not sure - we have three who are set up - but I think 2 of us sit around and wait while the other guy gets fitted. So there is probably no advantage other than maybe a slight discount
