Well its almost 2017 and bike fitting has been around for many years now, the technology may have improved but the fundamentals are still the same... Adjust the bike to suit the rider and their goals, style, fitness and mobility.
So “bike fitters” have been popping up all over the world with these protocols in mind and without much of an accreditation body anyone can call themselves a bike fitter and so it gets really murky for the consumer on how to decide who to go to.

You don’t stop when you have the “perfect fit” as that does not exist, you stop when you have reached your desired outcome as the bike fitter should be fitting you to what your goals are at the time of the fit. Different goals and styles will result in different outcomes.
Getting a bike fit does not mean that you have achieved a “perfect position” and by no means is the position now your “forever” position.
Be informed and stay safe on the road
