I wanted to throw something together to let others know about the experience I had getting a bike fit by Steve. Steve is the type of fitter who does a full on examination before he has you touch your bicycle. He takes body measurements, looks at your feet, checks your flexibility etc. All this information becomes vital throughout the course of the fitting.
After the examination Steve grabbed my shoes and set them up. He added shims, foot beds, and one shoe insert due to a slight leg length difference. This in itself was a huge difference when I got on the bicycle. I noticed my power increase as well as my knee tracking. This made for an entirely different feel which was not only more comfortable but more powerful.
As the fit went on we made numerous adjustments such as saddle height, saddle manufacturer, and stack height. Again all these changes increased my power and comfort. Being a competitive cyclist we tend to set up our bodies on the bicycle to be aero. Sometimes we take it too far which decreases power. With Steve, he is able to get you in a position that works for your body without losing the aerodynamic position and power we all go for.
