"I recently had my road and MTB fitted by John Karrash at Cahaba Cycles to prep for a sturdy race schedule this year. I selected John based on his profession as a local PT (not to mention his fit credentials and cycling experience). His base of knowledge about how the body moves is impressive. He spent over 5 hours measuring, adjusting, and testing my bike position. I raced the Cohutta 100 a month later and felt comfortable and efficient for the entire 11 hours, with no hot spots are numbness.  My average watts have increased while maintaining  a consistent ave heart rate. I definitely recommend a bike fit to anyone that wants to get  a big return on their pedal investment. And there's no one locally with more knowledge of the body/bike  relationship than John. I highly recommend his services." Stacey Davis - Group Fitness Dept Head @ Lifetime Fitness
