So you fired on a full custom Ruegamer with ridiculous components and haven't even gotten a fitting from a top notch fitter? The insanity....
No... I'm talking about with my TIME. I've had knee pain with this setup from the beginning and I was fitted by supposedly one of the best fitters in my area (even recommended by other forum members). I know the frame is too big, which is some of the problem so I'm interested in seeing the change with my Rue. I should have mentioned the frame was too big in the original post, but i wanted to hear people's responses before instantly just jumping to the sizing issue, which i agree is most like the problem. I want to still use this frame and thought with some insoles or wedges I could make it work. Had I just mentioned the frame size, all I would have gotten was 'get a new frame'.
Rue designed my new frame with a shorter top tube length and overall geometry. She required the typical measurements that all custom builders do (body and current frame) and about 50 pictures of me on and off my bike in various positions and placements. I went thru the initial stages of several custom builders and I was most impressed with how detailed and involved her initial work up. The first thing all of the custom builders said was that my TIME was too big. Lol so much for that professional fit. Bre sent my photos all marked up with how I should be and what position would provide me the most comfort and power. It's funny because as I ride my TIME (waiting for my Rue build) I can 'mentally' feel the difference that my Rue will provide. This 'fitting' was way more involved than any other fitting I ever received at any bike shop. Bre even gave me the seat height and setback I'll need once my bike is setup. I know this may need adjusted, but it'll give me a good starting point.
KWalker ...sorry you don't agree with my build and my "ridiculous" components. I'm sure if you had the opportunity you'd pass on such foolish bike gear. Lol. Don't be a hater.
Thanks for the help everyone. There are definitely some helpful tips I'm going to explore.
