"I am training for a triathlon which involves lots and lots of hours on a time trial bike. I went to Jason to get my bike fit dialed in. He not only helped me get more aero but helped make it more comfortable. Secondly, he helped me with alignment with me feet and knees. The muscular pain I was having last year from doing the long rides in my back and glutes has not re-appeared this year. Thanks Jason. I am feeling faster and fitter because of the Professional Bike Fitting." -Bozeman Patient
