Bike Fitter - Dutchess County NY?

A friend has been experiencing neck and back pain while switching between his new endurance bike (Giant Defy) and his existing gravel bike (somebody else's custom titanium Habanero). Bikes are set up relatively similarly and the Hab has never been an issue.

I'm thinking a bike fit might be helpful. Any good fitters in western CT / Dutchess County NY area?

One of my ex-teammates has been fitting for quite some time now and opened a 2nd location in Katonah 4-5 years ago. They are great!

I've heard good things about Benidorm Bikes in Canton, CT: https://www.benidormbikes.com/articl...-fit-pg147.htm.

I had a fitting done at Bicycle World in Mt. Kisco. It was the only one I ever had that I felt was worthwhile.

Lower back pain

Habanero here We tend to recommend shorter crank arms and lower handlebar drop than many other brands and tend to gear in wider ranges.

A tiny seat height delta can translate into a larger cockpit and causes lower back pain at least in me esp if I "grind" without standing on steeper hills or esp on the trainer. A slightly (5mm) lower seat height on the Giant Defy might improve things (my armchair guess).
