For the last 20 years or so of riding I had to deal with knee pain during and after a ride. Long rides would mean an ice pack on my knee for the rest of that day. I figured it was a sign of age and wear and tear from years of riding.
Two weeks ago I bought a new bike at The Velo Shop and Becky spent time fitting it to me. Most of the settings were the same as my old bike, but Becky spent a lot of time with foot position and angle. She saw I was rotating my left knee outward, and this was likely the source of the pain I'd encounter.
Last week I had my first group ride since being fitted. I had taken a year off from biking, so I knew I wasn't in shape and that the gang I was riding with would give me a good workout. The ride was 36 miles in 35 degree weather with just shy of 3000 feet ascent on 3 - 5% grades.
No surprise; I was absolutely exhausted by the finish. What did surprise me was the realization a few hours later that not only didn't my knee bother me during the ride, it didn't hurt afterwards. I didn't dread the thought of going up or down stairs. This was such a turning point for me that I had to write and let you know. And let me tell you, with results like this, the fitting was worth so much more than its price. It definitely was well worth the time and expense. In my case, the fitting was included with the purchase of my bike, but I would have gladly paid for it even if it wasn't, it delivered so much value.

Becky at The Velo Shop along with her staff went above and beyond in fitting our son for his perfect bike including changing the pedals for some that were more 12 year old friendly. I highly recommend this shop and will never purchase from any other bike store in the valley.

After that went in for professional fitting using the latest tech to set bike up for me including cleat placement riding angles and handle bar adjustments. All the while explaining why they mattered. Have to say best service I have ever received in purchasing a bike. Thanks again Eric and Becky! You have put in a bike shop that will put all the others to shame.
