    I don't know about Strictly but Cyclesport is well known for their fittings.

    I've been a Cyclesport customer since 1986. You will be happy with the service there. Mike Grotz, the owner, will fit you perfectly.

    Good Morning,
    Going to a good bike fitter may help you.
    For me, a bike fitting was good. A lot of changes.
    What may be minor, is a big deal.
    I don't know anything about this shop.
    Check with the local folks.

    Hi Gamenight, I noticed your post and felt compelled to answer. I'm not only the marketing director @StrictlyBicycles, I'm also a client.

    Our fitter Paul Cortez is certified in Specialized BG Fit: Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology. It's a comprehensive fit philosophy created to help cyclists ride faster, longer and in greater comfort, while reducing the chance for injury. (more details here: Specialized Bicycle Components )

    As for Paul's demeanor and professionalism, I might be biased for obvious reasons but the fact is he knows his stuff, he's friendly, and cares about every client. I can't tell you how many times people ride back to the store just to say thank you to Paul because a slight adjustment he made in their fit eliminated discomfort and created an overall improved riding experience. That has been my experience too. My rides have been 70-90 miles on average so the right fit is key to comfort.

    But enough about me. Here's a link to read testimonials from customers regarding Paul and our services: Testimonials

    See you soon and Happy Holidays!

    I had a fitting done at Cyclesport... Mike is a nice guy. He did tell me to come back if anything was off. It wasn't as comprehensive as I thought a fitting would be, but maybe I was going in there with preconceived ideas. Fitting was close, the seat was too high and I had to lower it by 1cm or so..hips were rocking and I had some lower back pain from stretching to complete the pedal motion. He did do a great job resolving my main issue which brought me in, which was my wrist pain. A good portion of that pain from an incorrect angle/grip on the hoods. After we spent some time shooting the sh*t, complaining about property taxes. I went for two spins around the block, more adjustments. It was good. He got my cleats in a good position too. I went when the shop was slow, so I would have his undivided attention.

    I ended up leaving with a new seat too, which I thought was an up-sell at first, but turned out to be just what I needed over the next 1K miles. My old seat was too wide, causing rubbing back thigh regardless of seat placement.

    Wow. I didn't know that ML did SAG duty. Impressed.

    "Lifesavers! I was on 9W, about 8 miles north of the bridge on a very very hot day when I blew a tire. I then blew my spare tube and used all my CO2. I was stranded. I called Strictly and they were there within 15 minutes to pick me up (in a nice Mercedes). They took me back to the shop, new tire, new tubes, and some other random stuff I purchased, then I was back on the road. They were awesome and helpful.

    They aren't known for it, but I had an expert bike fitting at R&A cycles in Brooklyn. The advantage in dealing with them is once fit, they have the widest assortment of Bikes and parts from which to choose from.
