Not really answering your question here, sorry about that but;
Honest question, are you actually going to a bike fit to ride your own bike and then have them adjust your saddle, stem length/height, handlebar/lever angle etc while you ride (or even better put; wait around and shuffle your feet between pulls and what not).
I'd expect a fitting bike where things can be adjusted on the fly.
Never done a bike fit? That is how the bike is then fitted to your body and not the other way around.
New bike with new geometry - pretty obvious to me that I'm going to have a bike fit.
Well yes, I have, thanks for asking.
I was fitted on a fitting bike, or a jig or whatever you want to call it.
Here's a fitting bike:
I suppose some smaller operations don't have access or are hesitant to spend money on equipment.
Hence the need to bring your own bike to ride on.
The measurement results from the fitting session can then be used to pick the correct frame size and geometry, and then finally adjust the bike accordingly.
My position doesn't really change between bikes and I'm able to transfer my fit to any reasonably sized bike, no need for a fitting session if I change frames.
Personally, I wouldn't like waiting around while the fitter is changing stems and so on.
