Sizing guide

Back to intro

Choosing the correct size of Bike

With the correct frame size you should be able to sit on the saddle with your feet on tip-toes touching the ground on either side and you must be able to reach the handlebars comfortably.

It is sometimes worth considering a smaller frame with the saddle raised slightly in order to obtain a more comfortable reach. The sizing chart below gives a guide to frame sizes against inside leg measurements.
