I demand that my support staff are podium-level people themselves - not just the riders. With this book Phil has confirmed that he is at the top of his field in the world. (Sir David Brailsford)
My advice has always been to seek expert advice from experienced cyclists, coaches or physios, or from a reputable bike shop. But now there is another option, and that is to consult Phil's book. (Sir Chris Hoy)
Phil Burt has spent more time looking at bike-fitting issues with more of the world's top athletes and across more disciplines than any other person on the planet. (Chris Boardman)
My thighs can vouch for the fact that Phil Burt has the best (bike-fitting) hands in the business. (Alastair Campbell)
What Phil Burt doesn't know about bike position probably isn't worth knowing: all his knowledge and his years of experience are distilled in this book. Phil has worked closely with the very best and their gold medals and other successes attest to how effective he is at helping cyclists find their optimum position and fulfil their potential. (Richard Moore)
Phil knows my body and its injuries better than anyone. Over the years he has successfully rehabilitated me many times and fine-tuned my bike position to allow me to be as optimal as possible. He's world class at what he does. (Ben Swift)
Phil's known me since I was in the British Cycling academy, and I'd trust him with any injury and how to accommodate it on the bike. (Geraint Thomas)
It is good to see a comprehensive book focused solely on bike fit. Phil has done an excellent job at compiling the research and sharing his world class experience of bike fitting (Todd Carver, Chief Fit and Education Office, Retul USA)
if you believe as I do that positioning will always be a blend of good science and good judgement, I think you can feel confident that both can be found between the covers of this book (Chris Boardman)
an excellent book...for the modern-day cyclist. (Tour of Britain)
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.See all Product description

I will read a second time alongside my bike on the turbo trainer. I think I could set up a camera/phone/iPad or Kindle and video myself, with a plumb bob suspended from the garage roof in the line of shot and then playback on my PC armed with a protractor to measure various angles and positions, thereby achieving much of what a Retul bike fit achieves. I wouldn't have thought of doing this without reading this book.
The book is also not just about the "Bike Fit" geometry but includes exercises and tips on how to keep "Bike Fit" in the physical sense.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I have read most of its content in a variety of cycling magazines, books and websites. This though does bring just about everything together in one publication - so really four and a half stars.
Definitely recommended for reading and as a go manual for bike fits and tweaks outside of the professional fitting process.
