My local Bike Shop is offering a Free Bike Setup check. As I am having problems with my current setup is this a good idea to take up?

    Yeah deffo - far to many people just ride the bike "out of the box" after altering the saddle height with no real idea of the best positioning of bars etc.

    Are you sure it's a "geometry setup"?

    Normally these setup things are about checking the indexing of the gears, cable stretch etc and making sure nothing is wrong with the bike.
    I like bikes...

    Let's just hope they're thorough when checking sizing eh?

    Well put it like this, I wouldn't want a bloke with a meauring the seat tube and then measuring my inside leg (oooer missus!!) and saying 'yeah that'll do!' lol :D
