    Serotta Bike Fit XY System?

    Has anyone heard of the Serotta X-Y Fit stick, and know how it works?
    Does it measure in cm or mm??

    mm. The pic should explain everything useful about how it works - there's really not a lot of explaining to a couple of meter sticks, two bubble levels and a knob. Other than why $350 seems a reasonable price.

    I made one out of an 8mm hex key, a piece of 2x2 oak and a .79 bubble level. Works just fine for measuring and transfering key fit numbers from bike to bike.
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    I bought a FitStik - used - for $25.

    Does the same thing, but for $23.75 more than Terry B spent.

    From the cyclemetrics site:

    "NEWS FLASH!

    October 2005 - Well, it's a done deal. A few weeks back, after numerous dialogs and careful consideration one of the major players in the bike industry purchased the patent and trademarks for the FitStik. Who? It's not my place to say; they'll announce it when they feel the time is right. When will they bring the FitStik back to market? What will it cost? When can you order? I don't know. But what I do know is this; the company is just about universally known and respected in the bike industry. The FitStik will be brought out under a brand name that you do know. The company has a sterling reputation for quality and delivering what they promise. Bottom line: well-made FitStiks will be readily available, worldwide, at a fair price, in the not distant future. "

    Me thinks Serotta bought the patent (way back in 2005) and is now selling the same product for big $$.

    It is not the same product, not be a long shot.

    It was not Serotta. I remember reading a while back who bought it but can't remember. It wasn't Serotta though.

    The FitStik and the X-Y are not the same thing.

    Well - they are spelled differently.

    And this is not the same either, or is it?

    All three look like they work exactly on the same concept.

    And the point is what?

    3 products from 3 different companies that do the same thing?

    Is that the point?


    Good thing there's only one of every other product on the market.
