How To Measure For Frame Sizing

One of the key criteria in ensuring that a bike is the right one for you is how you fit on that specific
bike. In general terms this means that no matter how far or fast you wish to ride the set up should be
comfortable enough that your position on the bike itself does not cause you pain or discomfort. While
we will recommend a frame size and set up on a bike it does not always mean that there is only one
size frame that will work for you. Depending on your riding style different frame sizes within a model
may give equally valid solutions. What we aim to do is find the frame size that not only fits but
ensures the bike performs the way you desire. With this approach we are considering your total ride
experience not just which frame size you can be jammed on to. The following steps provide us with
the measurements that allow us to recommend a frame size and set up (saddle height, bar width,
stem length etc) with a considerable degree of accuracy. However, these recommendations are only
as accurate as the measurements you take. We recommend that when in doubt measure 2 or 3 times
to confirm the accuracy of your number. The more care and attention to detail you can apply the
better the outcome. NB: IMPORTANT – remove your shoes or other footwear before taking these
measurements. It is okay to leave your socks on and we recommend not wearing tight fitting clothing
so as not to restrict your freedom of movement. You DO NOT need to have your cycling kit on to take
these measurements.
