Bicycle Fitting Manual

The BikeFit manual When the Foot Meets the Pedal is the foundation for every good bicycle fit.  
Regardless of your skill level in fitting or cycling, this manual will change the way you view foot correction!

The foot pedal interface is the most important connection to the bicycle. When the foot mechanics are off, the influence up the chain will mean other parts of the fi t will be off as well.  Misalignment at the foot could be the reason for lower back pain on one side, saddle sores or saddle discomfort or knee pain. Paul Swift, co-founder of BikeFit and Master Bike Fitting Trainer, and Katrina Vogel, MS DPT, provide an in-depth, step by step, graphical process of fitting the most important contact point on the bicycle, the foot-pedal interface. Packed with diagrams, images, instructions, notation methods and proper products and tools, this manual is a must read for all bike shops, bike fitters, physical therapists, coaches and enthusiasts who want to reduce injury, eliminate pain and help cyclists enjoy their best ride.

From Max Testa, MD:
Over 30 years ago during my Sports Medicine Fellowship, I was told that you cannot assess a cyclist’s performance or injury without looking at the bike fit.  Since then, I have rarely evaluated a cyclist in clinic without checking her/his position on the bike. With practice, I also learned that the foot-pedal interface is a key factor for a successful bike fit.

With their new book “When the Foot Meets the Pedal,” established bike fit experts Paul Swift and Dr. Katrina Vogel have completed another step in their effort to educate on the applied science of bike fitting. This easy-to-read, well-illustrated book condenses a lot of information about the proper assessment of the cleat’s positioning and alignment.  The readers, from bike fit professionals to the more serious cyclists, will find a lot of valuable and practical information, supported by great illustrations that take them step-by-step from the basics to the advanced understanding of the topic. 

I strongly recommend the reading of this book. It will be a fun and productive experience.”
