Can anyone recommend a shop/service/person who specializes in doing bike fits in the San Jose/Bay Area? I have a new bike that I have done a basic fit on but I have been finding on longer rides I'm starting to feel some pain and want to get things fine tuned. Thanks for the help.

Karl Etzel over at Silicon Valley Cycling Center in Campbell does a bang-up job, by all accounts. His shop is small and highly specialized... fit is most of what he does 9 to 5.

He also has the best saddle demo program I've ever heard of, both in terms of how it works and the saddle selection.

Bike fit

+1 for Rick Yu. He works for himself out of Eden Bicycles in Castro Valley.
He was very meticulous, spent a lot of time to get all the parts right. Price was very reasonable, and he' a really nice guy. And he fixed my knee and back pain.

Go see Tony Tom at A Bicycle Odyssey in Sausalito. http://www.bicycleodyssey.com/

He came recommended to me by someone for a quality, reasonably priced fit. That's exactly what I got. Over the years, I have had four bikes fit by him. I have also had a few very expensive bike fits elsewhere that I will not seek out again. Recently, I had him dial in my 'cross bike fit, and I have not been so comfortable on that bike! Can't wait for the races to begin...

Plus, he works for an hourly rate, so you are charged according to the amount of time he spends with you. Great guy, helpful, and willing to answer questions for you. A winner of a situation!

Well I got fit by Karl at SVCC today. He did a fantastic job, my bike fits like a glove. Did not have to replace any parts, he basically just worked on tweaking everything from my cleats on up. Very impressed by his service and knowledge.

Yup, that's Karl. :thumbsup:

Glad everything worked out great for you Stover... though I had no doubt it would.
