I want to know what size bike you ride and if you dont mind your general size.
Well I usually ride large frames in the 19-20" range but now those measurement systems are becoming obsolete. Those standover heights really say nothing about the frame size. One manufacturers medium can be about the same as another companies extra large. I look for bikes bikes with around 24" to 24.5" top tubes. My Titus Switchblade for example uses the same standover for all sizes so its impossible to categorize it by any of those sizes. Technically it would classify as a small since the standover is based on the smallest size even though its really an X-large with a 24.6" top tube.
When I got my Schwinn 19inch the guys at my LBS said I was sized for a 17inch, and they said the 19 would be to big. It was a tad big when I got it, but I have grown into it perfectly so all is well that ends well!
20" center to top on the seat tube.
62cm for road bikes.
58cm fuji Marseille and a 2003 Felt SR 71 59cm thats for sale.
18" Trek4300. fits perfectly. im done growing too.
Given the VAST differences between brands, This thread is pretty pointless. I ride a bike that fits me the way I want it to
I've been riding a large the last two bikes that I had, but then I finally came to my senses and realized that a large is too big for me and I got a medium/17" frame. I was able to get away w/ a large on my Sugar though, because of the frame design.
Scott Octane FX3
size L but it's sth between 17 and 19
quite difficukt to tell - it fits me perfect since I am about 183cm high
17" Kona Kula Deluxe
"M" Giant OCR2
18" Kona Kikapu, 2k3 vintage
It is the same size frame as a 20" hardtail
Mine is a Marin 18.5" but after installing a Marzocchi fork it "grew" a little, Marzocchi fork is a little bit higher than the other. BTW I'm 178cm (5'10")Now it the top tube is a little high for me but I'll have to live with it.
erm..... i'm 5' 6" and i have a 15.5"
is that abnormal?
Yep, what he said.
It depends on what brand you're riding and sometimes that changes too:
Old C-dale larges are now mediums.
Pre-Genesis GF frames are smaller than current Genesis frames.
I ride a Kona Kahuna deluxe 18" and I am 165cm... seeing as I'm a girl that seems big compared to what you guys are riding bikes ... but it seems fine to me... my old bike was a Giant Rincon hardtail 19" and too big...
15" Jamis, and I am a mere 5'4"
yeah as someone said before this threads pretty pointless because it depends on alot of otehr factors
im about 5'9" -5'10" and i ride a 16" DBR Zetec4.2 i cant remeber how long it is or anything though
the geometry of the frame plays a big part in deciding what size frame doesnt it???
6'2", 250#, GF Ziggurat 21"
