selecting the right size

How a bike fits is critical to safe, fun riding. A bike that’s too big will be difficult to control. One that’s too small will be awkward and uncomfortable .To avoid injuries and accidents, you want to find the size that’s just right. Our bikes are measured by wheel size: they range from 12” to 26” . To figure out what size is right for you, use this simple chart as a basic guide:

inside leg wheel size age guide
34cm to 41cm 12" Ages 2-4
40cm to 51cm 14" Ages 3-5 (for larger 3-4 years old)
43cm to 52cm 16" Ages 5-7
49cm to 62cm 20" Ages 8-9
56cm to 69cm 24" Ages 10+
60cm to 80cm 26" Ages 16 to Adults
71cm to 84cm 29" Adults

size variations

These sizes included overlapping ages because people vary in size. A general rule of thumb is to give yourself at least one inch of clearance between your body and the top tube when you are straddling the top tube with both feet flat on the ground. Because bike frames are shaped differently, the right size may provide you with more than one inch of clearance making adjustments

making adjustments

Once you’ve found the proper size, the next step is to adjust the seat height. setting the seat too high can make the bike unstable. Setting it too low diminishes rider efficiency. To maximize pedalling efficiency, adjust the seat so that while you’re in a seated position in the middle of the saddle, your leg is almost fully extended when your heel is at the bottom of the pedal stroke. Make sure to allow for a slight knee bend when your heel is at the bottom of the pedal stroke
