About andy brooke Bike Fit

Our bike fitter

Andy Brooke is internationally renowned as being one of the UK’s best bike fitters.

As one of only six Retul master fitters in the country, he has carried out bike fits on hundreds of cyclists, from members of the British olympic and para-olympic teams, to club cyclists and casual riders.

Having started out as a competitive rider in road, track, mountain biking and triathlon, Andy began his career in cycling retail before moving to British Cycling, where he worked in its sports development team.

He then moved to Spain, where he spent a year as a cycling guide and mechanic, before coming back to the UK to train as a bike fitter.

For the past seven years Andy has been a full-time bike fitter, and runs bike fit training courses and workshops across the country. He is also regularly asked to speak at cycling and bike fit conferences in the UK and across Europe.

Andy is the founder and President of the International Bike Fitting Institute (IBFI) and is also studying for a PhD in Sports Science, specialising in the biomechanics of cycling. He regularly writes blog articles about his studies.

Bike Fit Research

After completing a Masters Degree focusing on leg length and Time Trial positions, and presenting his findings at the 2014 Science & Cycling Conference, Andy decided to continue his research by starting a PhD.

His main area of interest continues to be the Time Trial position and the current project Andy is researching explores the role of cleat position in ankling patterns, pedaling style and muscle activation in Time Trial cycling. This research could have future implications for bike fit, cycling optimisation and possibly even shoe design.
