About 10 years ago, after 25 years of varied and vigorous riding, I had a proper fitting to my existing bike by Eric Marcos. After that fitting, for the first time, I had comfortable feet, hands, shoulders, knees, back, and butt. Amazing what you’ll put up with when you’re in love with riding. Just two years ago, I was back for another tweak for new saddle and handlebars. Tiny adjustments, big impact, more comfort, better control, and more ‘productive area’ to really pull on the drops. Wonderful!!
As a coda to that, I had a cancer diagnosis in June 2014 with surgery and treatment through the fall. Spring 2015, I started over beginning with easy miles on the trails, and got my legs and endurance back. I fought exhaustion, feeling weird about my body, crappy road surfaces, weather, and getting discouraged. The one thing I didn’t fight was the bike. It still felt like home, all contact points happy and grateful!!!
There will be a another bike, someday… starting with a fitting by Eric.
And I haven’t even talked about your meticulous mechanics or the overall lovely tone of your shop….
