I don't mind criticism, I do mind "your bike isn't fit for purpose" from someone (not you obviously) who doesn't actually know what the purpose is, or apparently much about bike fitting
So you had a bike fit then? to make sure your injury or lack of mobility will not cause more trouble? Actually we do in depth fits at our store, using tools and software and taking critical measurements of each individual to ensure they are correctly fitted on their bike, and not just for "what frame size do I need!"
you may be right about size, will be assessing it over the rest of summer and then deciding.
Oops doesnt look like you got a bike fit! It sounded like you got one as you seemed so sure about the sizing on the bike, but it appears you yet to check this properly.
Also the bike shop has wrapped the flats when they are not intended to be, will remedy that shortly.
Sounds like your bike shop know what they are doing!
And without sounding like a cock or argumentative sod it sounds like you have more of an idea than your bike shop, I suggest you dump them and do the work yourself and setup the bike yourself. I cant stress how important it is for someone that has mobility issues like you have mentioned to be properly fitted on such a bike.
Either way I wish you all the best in your rides and I hope it doesn't cause you more trouble.
edit - clearly I cant multi quote
Actually I may have been wrong about the bar tape, I have put the same bars as the Madone 7 on and all of the pictures I see of the Madone seem to suggest the flats should in fact be wrapped.
I was properly fitted (ie Retul-type process, cant recall if he actually used Retul, supplemented by a number of discussions with the fitter about areas where compromises were needed) before I even selected this bike, but of course that was done in aero configuration.
The bike shop that did the work pointed out the compromises and suggested a bike fit. I told them I would live with the compromises and that I want to ride the bike for a month and then come back for the fit.
Keep in mind it's not like I bought this frame to do this - I already had the frame, and if I later change my mind all I've really lost is 100 quid which is what the labour to recable it cost, and I'll sell it and get a Madone (which I will certainly get properly fitted for)
