It’s not where. It’s who. In the world of fit school’s you will find different beliefs and philosophy’s. Start with things you believe in I’m putting on a weekend event November 6&7 in Philadelphia. And you will learn about hand on techniques that will make most flat surfaces capable of in to fit stations This is part t of th expo the fit course is free. The range is class runs from dis ability to inability. Any questions reach out.

I agree with Happy, part of fitting is finding OR ADAPTING a fit system that works with what you know. I am Retul/Specialized trained, but I have made some changes to how I fit and deviated from their playbook on things I have observed or learned over the course of some years. New thing I have to convince the boss to spend money on is that I believe saddle pressure mapping has a place in my fitting system.
