Bike Fit 2nd edition: Optimise Your Bike Position for High Performance and Injury Avoidance (Paperback)
Burning thighs and lungs aside, cycling shouldn't be a painful or uncomfortable experience. If you suffer from numb hands, hot-spots on your feet, back pain or saddle discomfort when you're riding, chances are something isn't right with your bike set-up, your body or how they interact.
But not all cyclists can afford a professional bike fit. This accessible manual contains all the information you need to find your perfect cycling position, revealed by one of the world's leading authorities on bike fit.
This new edition includes brand new material on:
- why almost all cyclists would benefit from shorter cranks
- an in-depth look at saddle health, with special attention and advice for female cyclists
- watt-saving advice for time trialists and triathletes
- how to make indoor cycling more tolerable.
Let Phil Burt guide you through your own Bike Fit, to ensure your bike and body work in harmony.
