I've been told that I could benefit from having a bike fit? Is it really worth it or just a waste of money?

You may think that a bike fit is only for those serious racers, but it is applicable to anyone who intends to ride a fair bit. The aim of a bike fit process is to make the rider comfortable, more efficient, with good posture and in balance on the bike.

A bike fit will take into account the rider’s individual needs and will usually be tailored to meet the rider’s level of experience, riding ambitions and injury history. If you intend spending a lot of time on your bike, perhaps on long distance commutes or in sportives, then a bike fit is a money well spent in terms of making your bike and components work in harmony with your body and minimising your chance of injuries.

I'm more than a bit self-conscious. Do I really have to wear the lycra gear typically worn by most road cyclists?
