Bike Sizes

JasonBJasonB Posts: 303
If I am 6ft, which bike size would suit me best. I just need a ball park idea ie 54cm, 55cm, or 56cm.



Not too bothered about getting it perfectly correct yet.



I am replacing my Orbea for a bike that actually fits. With tri bars I am over stretching and I just know it isn't right.

    Thats difficult to gauge as even measurements between manufacturers can differ. But as a very rough guess if your 6' with an inside leg of 32" I'd be looking at a 56cm frame. (I'm 6'1" with a leg of 34" and ride a 57cm) but still best to try before you buy.

    thanks for that. My inside leg is 32", so will give a 56cm bike a tri

    Hi Jason,



    I'm from Edinburgh orignally too but went north rather than south!



    I used this website for a rough idea - its based on inside leg measurement
