Finding the right sized bike frame can be challenging. The ideal ratio between the size of a rider and the size of their bike is determined using a formula. First, you must measure the length of your inside leg or inseam when standing straight and barefoot. This measurement (in centimetres) must then be multiplied by a number that is unique to either mountain bikes or road bikes – 0.56 or 0.65 respectively. The resulting number is the ideal frame size – or height – of your bike. As this can be a little confusing, we recommend speaking to an expert, or consulting a bike-sizing chart.
We have something for everyone:
- Social and recreational cyclists
- Commuting cyclists
- Children and families
- Competitive or serious cyclists
