Anyone had a bike fit at Avanti Plus on Kensington Road?

I'm booked in this week but was a little concerned at there approach as he said he doesn't go to crazy with setup. That's fine I guess! maybe I'm reading too much into it. What have other experienced with this bike shop?

my only experience with that store was when they attempted to adjust a disc brake and was told 'thats as good as it can get' - only to find later the caliper mounting bolts were finger tight...

for a bike fit you need to see steve nash at corsa cycle centre on gouger st in town
if i get killed while out on my bike i dont want a 'memorial ride' by random punters i have never met.

Yeah i probably wouldnt waste my money on someone how says he doesnt go crazy on setup when im enquiring about a bike fit. Corsa Cycles seems to have a really good bike fit setup also might be worth talking to Peter at International Cycles on Payneham rd.

Is that lifecycles? They have had some positive comments on the forums and I received a few PMs recommending them after I complained about my LBS.

Update, I ended up going to Lifecyles and was fitted by Mike. He was very nice to deal with and during the fit process was happy to discuss any questions I raised. I was surprised at how far out my seat was it was raised about 30mm.

I've had a fit on Kensington Rd, but then again, I used to live on Kensington Rd. :wink:

Sorry not to be more help... glad things were to your liking
