I used Clinton Watson at Langwarrin sports and medicine in Langwarrin, as I have some body issues and may have had to compromise some speed/power to gain an acceptable ride position, I'm far from knowledgeable on the issue, but he seemed well imformed, he is also a pretty active competitor in iron man and triathlete and many types of bike racing

John Kennedy at Kennedy Cycle Centre has my recommendation. I recently saw him for BNA. He improved my position and I gained power. Took about 2-3hrs.

Be aware - feedback that I have seen across multiple forums About kennedys is highly divided. He fits to a certain style which apparently works really well or not at all.

John Kennedy was a disaster for me, I had a specific problem and was very clear about what I needed, he made my problem worse, cost me over $600, took ages to find a cure. Be careful!

If you are still looking - I was heading here, but fortunately a new bike seems to have cured my knee soreness.
