Phil Burt is one of the team behind the recent British Cycling glory at the Olympics, and Team Sky's triumph at the Tour de France. In this book he reveals the secrets of their success on the bike - how he makes sure each bike fits each rider, why this is important, and shows you how to get the best fit on your bike, to get the most from your riding. More and more people are taking up road cycling, and progressing to serious sportive riding. Even daily commuters need to make sure their bike fits them - from saddle height, frame size to position on bike - otherwise injuries can occur or be exacerbated, and performance times impacted.

Packed with real life case studies of professional cyclists from Phil's years of experience, this is the must have guide for anyone looking for a performance advantage.
The essential practical guide to setting up your bike to maximise performance and avoid injury, written by renowned Lead Physiotherapist at British Cycling, and Consultant to Team Sky, Phil Burt. Foreword by Sir Chris Hoy and introduction by Chris Boardman.
