This is just all too common.

I had the same experience elsewhere (highly recommended fitters in San Anselmo and Santa Rosa) attempting to find a fit for my wife that would accommodate a couple physical issues. Nothing but frustration and expense, thank God we ultimately met Steve Hampsten. He spoke to my wife, reviewed both fits (rolling his eyes) and set up one of his personal bikes for her to roll around the neighborhood. Most comfortable she'd been in years after, what, 15 minutes?

He sold a custom frameset that day.
