To help you choose the right frame size, consider the following steps:

1. Check our Size Recommendations: At the bottom of each bike and frame page, you’ll find size recommendations for each model. Use these as a starting point based on your height and inseam length.

2. Consider Your Body Proportions: 
 If you have long legs and a short upper body, we recommend opting for the smaller frame size. Conversely, if you have short legs and a long upper body, we suggest choosing the larger frame size.

3. Ensure Minimum Inseam Requirement: It’s crucial that your leg length meets the minimum inseam requirement for the respective frame height. This ensures adequate clearance and comfortable riding.

If you have any further questions or if you’re unsure, please don’t hesitate to send us an email. Include the model, your height, inseam length, and your preferred type of bicycle use (touring, backpacking, city commuting, etc.).
