Bike Fast Fit App

Been looking around for a while for a cheap-ish bike fit until I can get a real one, came across the Bike Fast Fit app on DC Rainmaker's page and was wondering if anyone had used it and what your thoughts on it are.

    I've played around with it and see it as a good tool to use at home. It's not a replacement for a good fitter, but it will help you see what you're doing, measure angles, and see the effect of adjustments.

    Find some stick-on colored dots like yard sale price tags to help locate your joint pivots.

    I use it all the time to make small adjustments, I have even made huge adjustments going to shorter distances recently, I will not go to a fitter anymore until I find somebody I trust , it is was easier for me to use my comoutrainer heart rate and the app and feel to figure out where I like to ride

    I used Kinovea, if you're familiar with any video editing software it's pretty easy to use. Downside is you need to take videos and then go to PC to look at them. You can do live recording but I only have a desktop so...yeah. It does motion tracking but not very well. Basically I'd just pick a frame, measure the angle, repeat. Took multiple videos with different size setups and figured shit out
