    Golden - Best shop for bike fit?

    Hey, does anyone have experience with getting a bike fit from any of the shops in/near Golden? (GBS, Big Ring, etc)? My wife needs a fit for her road bike.

    Thanks.

    slcdawg,
    If you want a serious fit, go to Boulder. Slipstream Pro Cycling... Here's a Denver location.

    I'm thinking about going to them for a fitting myself. I have some knee issues I need to address w/ my roadie-ing.

    Edit: actually, that Denver location is that of the founder of this fitting method.

    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Make an appointment with Todd Carver at Retul in Denver. He's the one that trains most fitters out there and has achieved "guru" status by fitting the Garmin/Slipstream team, Iron man winning tri guys, MTB world champ Gunn Rita Dahle, etc.

    I trust him and his fit way more than any bike shop dude that's taken a few classes - Todd has studied this stuff for years at school and then spent four years at Boulder Center for Sports Meds as top fitter with Andy Pruitt. I know at least five people, including myself, that have been fitted by Todd and we all have been very happy. Do it right or do it twice...

    The Retul studio is right off Broadway and Larimer downtown.

    EDIT: good reading on why to see Todd - http://www.pezcyclingnews.com/?pg=fu...97&status=True
