This has been done to death, if you haven't had a bike fit then you are missing out.

Totally transformed my riding worth every penny.

Have a read of my fit with Adrian Timmis: -

I've just had a read re' your bike fit. I'm sure he does know what he is doing ( I've ridden with him in Majorca on a training camp a few years ago). I just wondered about the fact you moved your saddle two inches back. Must have been set well forwards to move back that amount.

Yep my saddle was right forward as I used to set my bike up at the front and adjust everything backwards, totally stupid I know, but there were loads of subtle things that he did that changed the way the bike handled and indeed all my bikes.

Before I stripped the LOOK down, I took measurements using a Laser Wall aligner and made sure that I knew every single measurement after the fit as advised by Adrian, I then transferred all these settings to every bike and the change was remarkable.

Well worth the money and I love the foot insteps as well.
