I think you can get it done at wheelsports in Weselberg. AKA Franks.

Check out retul.com. They have offices in Koblenz and Mannheim. I'm emailing the guy right now about setting up a Friday appointment in Mannheim. From my house, Mannheim isn't much farther than Frank's. Weselberg is AWESOME, but I haven't had great luck getting an appointment. I thought it would be easier during the quiet winter months...but they do a tremendous business and are always crushed. Hands down, it's the best local bikeshop with fantastic deals...so it's worth a stop. But for a computerized fitting, I don't know of any other location. I'll post up with my experience at retul. A buddy in the states did it and swears by it.

Sounds good, I have friends that have done the Retul deal. They have all the computer technology, sensors and stuff so let me know hot it turns out. Would like to know how much they charge you as well.

will do.  According to the website, they have 2 different pricing "levels".  I also need some significant "mechanical" work done as the new fit requires new cabling install...

it is. When I reconfigured my aerobars (I had to raise them about 1.5" because my front end was just too low), the new routing rendered the existing shifter cables and housing too short. So when I put it all back together, it wouldn't reach the derailleurs. Rather than hassle with it before i got it fit, i figured we'd just do it all one day. Shouldn't be difficult at all...just need to get it sized, and then re-run cables and housing cut to length.
