There are a lot of excellent bikes available to buy, and you can do so through multiple channels - in store, online, new, used.
Knowing a bike is the right size for you, and can be well fitted is important for any bike purchase, but critical if you are buying a tri bike.
That's why I facilitate the purchase of a select number of "direct to consumer" tri bike brands, by offering a "Fit - Buy - Fit" service.
Direct to consumer brands actually prefer this. When you go directly to them to buy a bike, they cross their fingers and hope you are buying the right model and size, so they don't have to deal with the risk of returns and customer service issues. When they sell through an approved bike fitter, they are removing this risk - for you and the brand.
If you come for a Pre-Purchase Fitting for a new tri bike, I will see if your fit co-ordinates match a bike I can offer. If you then buy one of these bikes through me within 30 days I will credit the cost of the Pre-Purchase Fitting Session to the price of the bike, receive and assemble the bike, and set it up to suit your fit co-ordinates at no additional cost. So you get a new bike with a no cost pre and post purchase fit.
