Cyclefit in Dublin?

Howya,
Does anyone know of any shops around the city center that does cyclefits for good prices?
I have some discomfort in my knees at times and other places at times also.
Even if one of you were good at it maybe you could give me a hand at fitting me properly to my bike?
Thanks,
Stein.

Hi, I posted this in the general forum too....
Hi,

If I was you I would ensure that the bike is set up properly and then avoid concentric contractions (skids or attempting skids). To apply a force through your muscles and fail is a very bad thing for your joints and tendons. This sounds like you've strained your quadricep tendon. Which would be in line with trying to slow the bike. Just buy a break and don't bother using your legs to slow down.

Peace

Yeah I read that, very helpful but the help I need is in the setting up of proper riding position.

Find a tutorial on-line like:

or
http://sportsmedicine.about.com/cs/sport/a/bikefit.htm
and have a mate spot you on it.

Peace

Tiny you have a trainer right?

I do, but it's currently out on loan to a boardsie I'm afraid!

Wheelworx in Clondalkin do a bike fitting service, as do Cycle Superstore in Tallaght
