Finding the Right Size for You

Finding the right frame size is an important element of buying a bike but unfortunately it’s not an exact science. However the risk can be minimised if you complete our online form on the right with eight key measurements.

We will use three different ‘fit-systems’ to ensure you end up with the right size and will therefore be as comfortable as possible in the saddle. You will receive your sizing information back within 24 hours.

TIPS

  • You'll need the help of another person to make the most accurate measurements possible.
  • Don't be afraid to take each measurement 2 or 3 times and average the measurements together.
  • If your measurements are accurate then so will the size we recommend, so it’s worth taking your time, it should take about 10 minutes if you are meticulous.

InseamInseam

Put your cycle short on and take your shoes and socks off

Set your feet approximately 8" apart and straddle a straight edge - something like a rolling pin or spirit level.

Put as much pressure on your crotch as you feel when sitting on your bike seat.

Measure the distance from the top of the rolling pin or spirit level to the ground.

TrunkTrunk

Sit on a stool with your back straight and your pelvis hard against the wall.

It’s important that your back is straight and your pelvis is right against the wall. Place the straight edge on top of your AC (Acromioclavicular) joint and against the wall.

The AC is the bony bump on top of your shoulder. Measure from the bottom of the level, to the top of the stool. Measure both sides of your body and average the measurements.

ForearmForearm

Hold a cylindrical object in your fist. Lower your arm so that it is to your side, and extend your forearm in ahead of you.

Keep the object in your hand perpendicular to your forearm and measure from the centre of the object, which should fall in line with your knuckles, to the bony protrusion at your elbow pivot.

Measure both arms and average the measurements

Whole ArmArm

Continue to hold the cylindrical object and extend your arm in front of you, holding your arm parallel to the ground.

Try not to allow your shoulder to come forward. Make sure that the object in your hand is perpendicular to your arm. Locate the Pivot of the arm to shoulder point and measure from this point to the centre of the object, which should fall in line with your knuckles.

Measure both arms and average the measurements

ThighThigh

Sit on a stool again making sure your back is straight and your pelvis is hard against the wall. Make sure your femur is parallel to the ground and your tibia is perpendicular to the ground. Place the level across the front of both of your kneecaps, then measure from the inside face of the straight edge to the wall. Take this measurement from both legs, and then take the average.

Lower LegLower Leg

Remain seated.Place the level across the top edge of your kneecaps (where they connect to the bottom of your inner quadriceps muscles).

Measure from the bottom of the level to the ground.

Sternal NotchSternal Notch

Stand up against the wall. Set your feet approximately 8" apart.

Find the sternal notch in your neck - it's the bony "V" immediately beneath your Adam's apple.

Measure the distance from the apex of the notch to the floor.

Total BodyTotal Body Height

Remain standing against the wall with your feet 8" apart.

Put a straight edge on top of your head and make sure it touches the wall without sagging.

Mark the wall at the point where the book or ruler meets your head.

Measure from this point to the floor.
