I am looking for recommendations on a good bike fitter in NYC. I've just purchased a used bike and have never been properly fit in the past. I am curious as to how good a bike can feel when properly fit. Any info would be helpful.

Had my bike fitting yesterday. I would say this is the most detailed and thorough fitting I ever had. Be prepared to spend 2 hours - Craig measures everything! Definitely recommend checking him out.

Excuse my ignorance but who's Craig? Is this a shop owner? How much does he charge?

R & A Cycles - in Brooklyn, about 1.5 miles from the Brooklyn/Manhattan Bridges:

Ask for Felix.

BTW, R&A is huge and has most everything in stock - worth a visit.

R and A is #1

I'll second the R and A tip. I purchased a bike from them last fall and Felix did the fitting. He's awesome, precise and you can trust him to do a swell job. My only problem with R and A is the absolute bike lust that I'm overcome with whenever I stop in for a visit or adjustment. Colnagos, De Rosas, Pinarellos, Looks, etc etc's all too much, stop me!

At High Caliper in White Plains, Harlan, the owner is methodical in sizing & seems to take the time to know what a particular cyclist's preferences might be.

Also, Piermont's two stores are supposed to be using some advanced system of either software &/or lasers. I have not seen it but have heard one rave review.

Chelsea, in Manhattan, West 20's, is owned by a framebuilder so I'm sure he quite good & careful. He knows a world about bikes, on all levels.

Good Fit makes a tremendous difference. Good luck.
