********************************************************************************

General Info: I have owned Bethel cycle and have been our lead bike fitter for 15 years. I have formally attended multiple Serotta, SICI, Guru and FIST training classes and have been certified by all.

We were an early adopter of the Guru DFU and also the first installed site of the enhanced version the Guru Experience.

I think my greatest strength as a bike fitter is experience. I have conducted thousands of bike fittings and since we have a huge club I get to see the people I fit and get feedback from them constantly. I also am a elite masters duathlete (past national USAT Du champ) so I know what works and what doesn't.

I take a holistic approach to bike fitting and besides taking the sound approach from, FIST and SICI I have developed my own "best practices" and have developed software and image capture tools long before Darfish was in vogue (I do use Dartfish at this time.)

In conclusion I have a World Champion bike and 4 National Champions, and many, many racers who win on a regular basis.

I would be happy to help you be fast too!

Google Map


Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
