Bike fitting in Seattle, WA(6 posts)

Bike fitting in Seattle, WAMRS
Jun 4, 2002 10:32 AM
A friend of mine would like to get her bike fitted. Can anyone recommend a place? I thought of R+E or maybe Elliott Bay Bicycles (that's the shop of the Davidson frame builders). Has anyone dealt with one of the above? Any other places? What would (approximately) be the costs?
Thanks for your help!

Don't know a lot about these guys, but it seems to be what they specialize in. I was considering giving it try myself to see if they come up with anything different for me.

A friend of mine recently bought a bike from Rainier Cycles. He was very satisfied with the prices and service.

I'm not a fan of R+E for a variety of reasons, but if that's where your friend wants to go, cost will be (I believe) $100.

I haven't had a formal fitting, but I have bike shopped and gotten informal fit info at both Elliot Bay and Sammamish Valley Cycles (in Redmond). Both do fittings, and I can heartily recommend both these shops for their friendly, knowledgable staff. My husband had a fitting at Il Vecchio (sp?), and ordered a custom frame (Mercian) based on it that he is very happy with. The guy at Il Vecchio is kind of eccentric, but seems to know his stuff. Sorry I don't have cost information.

Good luck,

...I purchased and was fitted for a Seven through John Gallagher who works from his shop at his home in Ballard. He also does just fittings and works by appointment only. I have a friend who's seen him just to get a fit update on his current bike. John is very thorough and I can wholeheartedly recommend him.
