Bike fitting in Hobart; any thought or experience?

Postby mattalebi » Fri Jul 17, 2015 3:55 pm

Hi, just bought a second hand road bike and want to get it fit. I made a few phone calls and found the following options in Hobart:
1) AvantiPlus which uses A+ dynamic fit system for about $100 to $150
2) Bikeride which uses Specialized Body Geometry Bike Fit for $350 (comprehensive fit) or $85 (quick fit)
3) Ride Bellerive. Not sure about the system that they use but it costs about $ 80-100
Any experience, suggestions or any other options are appreciated.
Thanks
Matt

I've had a quick fit done from Bikeride which was enough for me, but if you are really not confident about fiddling around with saddle and cockpit positions you might be better off getting a more comprehensive service. I would say it's worth trying an online calculator first, and setting your bike up in terms of that as might well save you a few bucks.

Go up to Launceston and Rowena Fry, only person actually qualified in Tassie.

Over the past five years, I have purchased 2 road bikes from Adrian, Jason and the team at Ride Bellerive. On both occasions these bikes were adjusted for my frame size before I wheeled them out the door.
With the 2nd road bike, which I currently ride, I opted to have cleats fitted after purchase and the necessary adjustments were made for me with no hassles or waiting.
The guys have continued to maintain and service my bikes over the years and again nothing is too much hassle for them. These days you do need to book in to have your bike serviced due to the popularity of the place and cycling in general.
