Why Bike Size Matters

See adjusting the saddle section

There should be at least 2cm or 3/4 inch between the frame and your crotch

There are some quick methods explained below to determine approximately what size of bike you need. Bike sizing charts are also found below so you can determine in advance if a bike is a potential fit depending on your height and bike type. However, people having different leg to body ratio, the only way to know for sure is to try the bike and adjust the seat height.

Important! the information below applies to older bikes only. Newer men's and ladies' bikes have a lower frame with a longer seat post. On older men's bike the top horizontal tube is really horizontal. Newer bikes have different frame geometry, the top tube is not completely horizontal but lower toward the saddle.
