Yes I would love to get this sorted as its really stopping me from doing longer rides. I'm now wondering if the original seat could be totally fine and its other elements that are wrong!
I am in a health fund but have no idea if any local physio's do this service, I'll start looking. Does a database of any kind exist?
How do you think the Specialized BG fit system compares to a physio fit?
BG is simply a standard set of angles that BG thinks a cyclist should fit into.
They then contort your body into that angle.
Owned by Specialized (as is Retul).
I have been through 2 BG fits.
One was unrideable and I dismantled it the next day.
The other put me 2cm higher than I usually ride and ultimately led me to injury.
My Retul was very similar. I stuck with it for 12 months before I noticed that the niggling back injuries were back.
None of the fits addressed any of the issues that I brought up prior to the fitting.
