Can anyone recommend a good bike fitter. I can travel to Columbia, Greenville, or Hilton Head, but Charleston area is preferred

Greenville Cycling Center is used by pretty much everyone in the upstate and they do a fantastic job.  They send you a print out of your results and you can call them up before any new bike purchases and they will run your geometry through the software to make sure the bike/size you are looking at getting will fit you (and thats free).

that's what they do, but the fit measurements are saved such that you can compare geometry of other bikes to your numbers to determine in the future what size frame to get for various bike models.

I agree with Clempson. Jim Cunningham is the guy at GCC that did my fitting. He took his time and it was worth the effort. My biggest concern would be driving from Charleston up to Greenville anytime you needed or wanted an adjustment. If you make a habit of coming up here on the weekends to ride the mountains, I would do it. Otherwise, there has to be somebody in Charleston who could do a fitting. I have heard of a retired pro in Columbia who does fittings but don't know who he is.

The former pro in Cola is Eddie Balcerzak, originally from Poland. He's actually in Lexington and Irmo at South Lake Cycles, but the Irmo shop is set up for fittings. I used to work at SLC. He knows his stuff.

This is who did my fitting.  He does really know his stuff.  My fit was very comfortable and a better position all around for power, comfort, and aero...I would recommend him.

Call them up and make an appointment.  Just tell him you are coming in for a bike fit and make sure you get Eddie.

Here is there website. http://southlakecycles.com/. I went to the Harbison Blvd location.  Not sure if he does fittings at the Lexington location or not...just call them and ask.

If I remember right I think mine took just over an hour and it was ~$100 or so.  Cant remember exact price...they will tell you over the phone when you call to make an appointment.

I am in the market for a new road bike, at several local bike stores I will test ride several bikes. Other than basic fit and components, how should I compare them while doing a test ride?

I got about a minute into it and, despite bracing myself against it for months, I panicked. I could not get my breath. I said, "I can't do this, I can't do this."
