Stu,

What a great podcast! I never knew the numb feet and back pain were unnecessary. Definitely will get a fit with my next bike. thanks for doing a great job. your podcasts are much more original and your delivery is much more professional than the first few. Keep up the good work!

I just bought an iPod, and found your podcast. Fantastic! After wasting $250 on two bike fitters who didn\'t know what they were doing, you gave me the information to at least ask the right questions. Amazing! Right now, my right knee hurts so badly after every ride that I can barely walk for the rest of the day. Now I know that it really doesn\'t have to be that way. Thanks again. What a great podcast.

Definitely get your old bike fitted BEFORE you consider a new bike! The fitter will not only adjust your existing bike, but they will give you the information and measurements you will need when looking at a new bike. You might find out that your old bike works great, but you will definitely find the correct geometry to look for in a new bike that will match your body and style.

Also, there may be several fitting methods used by professional fitters, but the fitter I went to uses the Serotta fit method and had been through several training sessions at the Serotta fit school.

I actually E-mailed Stu a question about bike fitting & then he had me call in & ask a question to the bike fitter for this podcast (WOW; now I\'m famous). Great information. I then found a bike fitter nearby on the internet & went for a 1 1/2 hour bike fitting yesterday & took a 2 1/2 hour ride today -- what an incredible difference. No more back of foot pain!!! That was worth every minute of time & every dollar I spent!!! Thanks Stu

Stu - A friend of mine in Atlanta turned me onto your Podcast this weekend. I spent most of my workday today catching up on all of your past podcasts and tonight I spun for an hour while listening to podcast #17 Bike Fit. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Over the past 3 weeks I\'ve been researching the
\'bike fit\" capabilities of various bike shops here in the Charlotte, NC area. After listening to your guests from Cronometro I feel that I have a better understanding of the questions I should be asking. Also, the questions a professional should be asking me when qualifying the store for fitting me on my current ride. I\'ve been kicking around the idea of a new ride this season, but a $150 investment will most likely save me a lot of money in the long run. These crazy ideas (new bike/equipment) have all come up after I suffered for 7hrs on the IM Wisconsin bike course this past year (no need to say anymore). Thanks again, and keep up the great work.
