TO BIKE FIT OR NOT TO BIKE FIT?
When is the right time to invest in a proper bike fit? can a rider really gain such a great advantage as to justify an investment of £150 - £200 ( $200 - $300)?
This level of investment can be seen I suppose in two ways. Will it improve your cycling or prevent you from being injured? I am guessing the experts will probably tell you "both".
What is a bike fit?
We are all different. Different length limbs and muscles change our physical characterisitcs when were on a bike. Since no bike is standard we tend to have to "tweek" the settings on a bike to make sure we are comfortable on our rides. There must be something in it as the professional riders make a big thing of it.

We are keen to hear your views. Did you have a bike fit done? was it worth it? How did the benefit materialise itself?
