    Best bike fitter in Bend

    I need to have my bike refitted since getting new shoes and pedals. Who's good in Bend?

    Long story, but I'm trying to get rid of a pressure point on the ball of my foot that has had me in a cast three times because of stress fractures to my sesamoid bone. It still hurts like crazy to ride off road right now.

    I understand Rebound PT at the Century Dr. office (across from Ray's Supermarket) does it a lot. Since it's related to injury I wonder if your health insurance might even cover it? You might want to give Rebound a call about that.

    Did I see you riding in Shevlin Park yesterday?

    Yes. Very slowly. Any large drop sends pain shooting through my foot so I was taking it very, very carefully. I'm trying to learn to ride right foot forward to ease the pressure on those injured nerves. Do you think a cortizone shot would help? It's been casted three times for this stress fracture and sesamoiditis.

    I'm not managing your case so I don't know if a shot would help. Might want to run it by Wilhelm if you haven't already.
