    Argh! Bike Fit!!!

    I was pretty sure putting new pedals on my bike screwed up the fit. Turns out it was never fitted properly! I went in today and had the bike fitted and had to move my seat up about 2"!! They also needed to push the seat back.

    The shop I bought it from went out of business (I think it was a tax issue), so I had to pay for a fit from a new. I love my Cannondale still, but am thoroughly annoyed it wasn't fitted properly. I may still be looking at switching out the seat post and the stem. Right now it feels really different, but I am eager to give the fit a shot.

    Best part? The new bike shop guarantees their fit and the guy who assisted is Serotta Certified. I don't know what was with the fit I got, the same guy fit my Fuji and it was perfect. Oh well, live and learn.

    I'm glad you're fitted now
