On this bike, about 8 years. I originally built it myself, and it felt ok. I set the seat height with the heel-on-the-pedal method. The triggers for the bike fit were : a) I had some time off and a trip planned which passed Lancashire, b) as a treat for myself, and c) I wanted to raise the handlebars, which always felt a bit low, so I thought a bike fit would help me buy the right-sized stem.
