It’s been about six weeks or so since the fit and just thought I’d let you know everything is feeling great on both bikes. Things are progressing along nicely, I’m more comfortable / powerful now and feel like every aspect of the fit is considerably is better than before. Personally, I thought changing the spindle lengths made a big difference and was like the last piece to the puzzle. I’m experiencing smoother pedaling and am able to sustain a higher cadence with less effort.
I also got a hold of a Thomson x4 110mm 0 degree for the mtn bike. I was a little worried how the bike would handle out on the trail, but to my surprise I thought it was more stable, especially on the climbs and actually handled better overall.
Thanks again for everything. In comparison to previous bike fits; I felt like the thirsty man only getting a half a glass of water, which made me feel a little better, but finally got the full glass I needed with your help and this fit.

I first contacted Colby after doing extensive bicycle fitting research online. I had been through 2 prior professional fittings and had definitely seen some improvement in my position on the bike, but things were still “not quite right”. In fact, I continued to have significant back and neck pain and ongoing shoulder discomfort after a ride of more than 30 minutes. I had read everything Steve Hogg had on his website, and as a physician, the concepts he was discussing made tremendous physiological sense. For this reason I contacted Colby Pearce. I was preparing to head to Colorado but that was not possible until sometime next year and I wanted to get moving.
After emailing Colby, he suggested that I do a video fitting. Obviously, this is no substitute for in person fitting but it would have to do.
Wow!!! After three separate videos, I have never felt more comfortable or been able to generate more power with the adjustments that Colby suggested. He truly understands the individual and the fitting issues that are different for each person. He did not just measure a few angles and adjust my bike but carefully observed my “functional position and mechanics” on the bike and recommended adjustments that were specific for me. It has made all the difference.
Thanks Colby. I will never go elsewhere.
