Vancouver, Lower Mainland, bike fitting, physiotherapist

I'm looking for anyone who has gotten a bike fitting, specifically with a physiotherapist, because my health insurance covers most of the cost. I have a couple of leads from friends but would welcome any other opinions and experiences from members of this forum. Please share!

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick response!

I'm definitely sticking with a physiotherapist just so that it's easier on the wallet, which means I can't sit down with the shop that I like, which is Might Riders. My friend recommended one place in Surrey, and I found 2 more through Google.

I've only had a basic fitting twice, but nothing in great detail. I know enough to have gotten very close to my ideal position but recently noticed that something is missing and I think it's better fit. No pain after long rides, just the usual workout aches. But I feel like there's a significant room for improvement. I'm just an enthusiast, but would like to squeeze all the potential I can out of my bike.

I know it will also take more than one session, so having my insurance cover most of it will be much more appealing. As for access to proper bike parts, as long as I know what I need, I can always source it locally or online. I still have some spare parts at home too.

The bike fitting helped a LOT. I no longer have calf or sartorius muscle pain (at least to a MUCH lesser degree). Love it!
