Houston area fitting

Hey folks, can anyone recommend a shop for a good fitting? I want to get my ride dialed in for the MS150. The shop I bought the bike from did a great job with initial fit, but it's too far to go for some minor adjustments.

Thoughts?

Heard good things about Tad Hughes but no personal experience.

No personal experience either, but I know Bike Barn has a fit studio at their Weslayan location. Also, a new shop in Katy, Handlebar Cyclery, has a fit studio as well. In general, I would highly recommend the guys at Handlebar. They are a great bunch of folks. Very friendly and helpful. Definitely my go to bike shop.

Tad Hughes does a great job. I had a pre-buy fit with him while bike shopping and just went back about two weeks ago to get a final fitting on my new Emonda. He was thorough, efficient, and very easy to work with.

Tad Hughes would be my choice as well. The last place I would go is the Bike Barn.

Tad Hughes has a good reputation, but I have not used him personally.
I had 3 bike fits myself and my wife had one at Bike Barn Studio and I was very pleased with the results on all 4. Joe is no longer doing the fits at Bike Barn and I have not used the lady who is doing them now, so can not speak to her work.

Tadss Hughes Custom without exception. I have been fit on two different bike and been there 4 times. Tad is a great guy and really knows his stuff. He pays attention to the details and fits to for the type of riding you do. You can not go wrong with Tad.
