A bike that fits properly is more comfortable and fun to ride (than any bike that doesn’t fit, regardless of how comfy it looks!). Bike sizing matters because we are all uniquely built. Two people might have the same overall body height but one might have longer legs than the other. Or, longer arms. To ensure your ultimate riding comfort, take a few moments to explore our size guide information.
How are bikes sized?
While the precise way in which bike manufacturers size their bikes can differ, generally speaking, bike sizing is based on the seat tube length, more so than any other factor. But because there are so many different types of bikes, going from lithe compact urban models to larger-sized cargo bikes for small businesses, and because there are so many brands, it is always best to check the manufacturer’s own size guide.
At Bikelix, thanks to our in-depth familiarity with each brand and bike, our direct relationship with each manufacturer, and our years in the industry, we were able to put together relevant and useful sizing information, to help you find your perfect size as efficiently as possible. This information can be found on each bike’s dedicated product page.
