Absolut empfehlenswert aus meiner Sicht.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A mixed bag - fit first, problems aplenty, not "complete" 11. März 2007
Von Andrew Kent - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
If you want a decent book about bike fit, this might be a book for you. But I have mixed feelings about this book, and overall wouldn't recommend it if you're expecting a complete medical guide for cyclists. Despite its title, this book is not "complete," as claimed. It doesn't touch on a lot of issues for riders, like riding in cold weather, for instance. Arnie Baker's book is more complete ("Bicycling Medicine"). Pruitt's main focus seems to be on bike fit, and here he seems to know what he's talking about, even if his ideal approach is inaccessible to readers of the book (you have to go to his lab and get reflectors put on you and a movie made). The book is very thin. At its best, this means the author is concise, and some of his insights are great. At its worst, the book seems superficial. The section on supplements is most troublesome. Here, the author seems compromised and conflicted. He allows a physician who has a particular view of hormones, supplementation, and athletics to essentially write in the book, and even to push his products. I was a little insulted by this. Overall, this book probably wasn't worth the money for me -- it isn't complete, and has a lot of internal deficiencies.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Resource but not as complete as I'd like 9. Januar 2007
Von D. D. Gabrielson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have far higher expectations than most when it comes to details, so I may want more than you do... Andy Pruitt does a great job of bringing together the state of the art in terms of basic issues with fit and cycling-related challenges. The book is well written and well organized, and covers just about anything a serious new rider would need to know; I see it as a must-have for anyone in the business of selling bikes so that their customers get good advice in a world where truly awful advice still reigns... in my 20+ years of racing and ultra events, I've seen or felt nearly every issue described in this book, and I would have appreciated the information years ago... where it falls short are in the finer points of fit when it comes to less common challenges or body types-- I'm constantly asked for advice from hard-to-fit cyclists and it would be good to have more detailed science behind some of the information in this book in order to better understand how to make tradeoffs in less-than ideal situations. Another area that would be helpful would be more information on the linkage between bike fit and performance, at least in terms of how small changes can make a big difference when you get into the details... all in all, I count this book a winner because it brings together a lot of information that's out there but not so easily found or digested.

The bottom line-- The average cyclist will definitely benefit from using the information in this book. Every bike shop and bike sales-person shouldn't sleep at night if they don't have at least a basic knowledge of this information. Bike racers absolutely must know these things or they're wasting energy and maybe even doing harm to their bodies out there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Book 24. Juni 2006
Von Matthew C. Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was evaluated by Andy in the early 90s for IT Band Syndrome. There is no more knowledgable person on the practicalities of cycling biomechanics than Andy. This book contains a huge amount of information on bike fit, injury prevention, and injury treatment. I recommend this book for every cyclist of any caliber who has questions about fit or injury.

My only complaint about the book is that Andy is a bit self-promoting in it; talking about how he fixed EddyM's bike fit issues, and how he fixed this or that world-class athlete's problem. Don't get me wrong; I have no doubt that he is telling the truth, but at some points, the comments seem a bit out of context.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you ride any kind of bicycle, you need this book. 12. Januar 2007
Von P. Pagano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Short of going to the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine and getting personally fitted, this is the best way to adjust the settings on your bike. This book takes you through all of the biomechanical factors involved with cycling, and using simple language and techniques, you'll be able to improve your bike fit and possibly eliminate a lot of pain. More importantly, you will prevent long-term physical damage.

A must have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Chapter on knees 6. März 2008
Von R. S. LEAR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you are like me and have taken up cycling because of knee problems, Chapter 5 makes this book worth the money. This is the single best description of common knee problems and advice that I have found. I have spent years researching knee problems and remedies, and stumbling across this book has been the best coup. If you suffer from knee problems but don't cycle, buy this book. If you are in the medical profession, buy this book because your patients will love you. I have seen close to 20 different doctors, physical therapists, and specialists and none could describe all of the common knee issues and problems this completely, simply, and thoroughly.
