How to choose your frame size
There are two methods to help you choose the right frame size. The preferred method is by measuring your inseam / inside leg length. The second is by using your height.
1. Measure your inseam
Your inseam is the distance from the floor to the highest possible crotch position. The easiest way to measure it is to:
- Stand, without shoes, with your back against a wall and spread your feet 6-8″ apart.
- Place a hardcover book between your legs and up against the wall, spine up. Raise it until snug against your crotch (this mimics your bike seat).
- Have another person measure from the top of the book (spine) down to the floor.
|Min inseam||Max inseam||Frame Size|
|69||27 1/4||77||30 1/4||49|
|77||30 1/4||86||33 3/4||55|
|86||33 3/4||95||37 1/2||61|
- A suspension seatpost will raise your saddle by about 4 cm (1 ½ inch). If you’re getting one, please reduce your inseam by 4 cm, and check if you need a smaller frame.
- If your inseam or height is between two frame sizes, these are the rules of thumb:
– If you’re a confident rider, choose the bigger frame
– If you want your feet firmly on the ground when standing still, choose the smaller frame.
