Bike fitting recommendation- Aidan Hammond or?

    I have a racer, looking to get a bike fitting & saddle done. My bike (Canyon Endurance AL7) was self assembly, want to invest the money to ensure I'm at optimal position for riding & comfort (an oxymoron maybe....).

    I'm in Galway, someone recommended Aidan Hammond in Wicklow. He's a former cyclist, a physical therapist, has a dedicated studio. I'm willing to travel but wondering if there's anyone closer to Galway that'd get a strong recommendation. Someone mentioned Marrey bikes in Ballinrobe but I've no idea about how good they'd be in comparison

    are there any issues you're trying to get sorted?

    i'm very much of the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' school.

    Marrey Bikes don't do bike fitting but the brother of the guy that owns the shop does. Padraig Marrey is the bike fitter.

    I would recommend James O'Donnell if you're in Galway. He's done a couple of bike fits for me and cleat alignments outside of that with a couple of pairs new shoes also. He knows his stuff, been around the scene for years and years. PM me if you want his number.

    Is James still at it? Hadn’t heard of him for a while, and I was looking for someone in Galway recently also. I’ve been to Padraig Marrey in Ballinrobe before and found him excellent and very thorough.
