I'm getting the feeling my fit is a bit long in the tooth, especially as I have adjusted my cleats.

My previous fitter has hung up their boots, (tools?!).

Any cast iron recommendations in the south, or west london?

I'm after someone who understands the need of a tri fit, and can balance aero with sustainability and being able to run off the bike.

(I have a very good local guy and if I asked anyone around here they would say go to him, but he's heavily TT focused.)

Thanks.

I'm a big advocate of department of endurance in Fulham. Having experience of Retul and fits of that style, the Guru system is a bit of a game changer for me. It's all about what feels comfortable to you, and maintains power output, with the ability to test micro adjustments without getting off the bike.

Ben's a really good guy too. I bought a new TT bike and he offered to set it up for me with my fit data with no additional cost.

For road and cleats I like Scheritt Known in Thatcham (Bike Whisperer).

Not really found a decent TT fitter but my position hasn't changed for a couple of years.

Richard Melik, Freespeed. Not cheap but brilliant.

InGear in Forrest Row really good did both my road and TT set up. I had been riding my road for years tweaked the fitting myself and it was ok but after the fit it was like another bike and even better.

NOOOO. I am going to get a new bike (same make) so was hoping he could use my measurements and put it all together for me. Damn it. I'm now watching this thread with interest.
