Method Two: Calculating the bike size
  • Take off your shoes; stand with your legs far about 15-20 cm(6” – 8”) from each other; measure the height from the ground to your crotch.
  • Have in mind what model of bike you do want: Mountain bike, city bike, gravel bike, or road bike.
  • Calculate the right size according to the bike you had chosen:
  1. City bike – Leg inseam (cm) x 0,685 = Your frame size
  2. Mountain bike –  Leg inseam (cm) x 0,66 = Your frame size
  3. Road bike – Leg inseam (cm) x 0,70 = Your frame size
