if i had a dollar for every bike plan…

I might have enough money to pay for this.

As this recent NYT article explains:

Hot foot. Tingling toes. Hand numbness. Lower-back soreness. Hamstring discomfort. The alleviation of those types of pain complaints, all common among cyclists, is the usual justification offered for the time and money spent on this type of fitting. To the trained eye of a bike fitter, there are certain clearly recognizable alterations that can be made to eliminate pain that, as Mr. O’Brien said, “you shouldn’t be feeling.”

As we talk more and more about riding as a way of commuting, it’s worth thinking about the effects of that ride. If I had the $150 to $400 the article talks about, I might consider it, but I’ll content myself with just thinking about it.
