Sizing a mountain bike correctly is vitally important to the comfort, enjoyment, and safety of your ride. Getting the wrong frame size can lead to problems such as body soreness and, in some cases, injury.
What Size Mountain Bike Do I Need?
Ideally, there's no substitute for sizing a mountain bike in person. For that reason, a visit to your local bike shop or bike fitter can help you determine your best fit based on the style of mountain bike you're looking for.
If that's not practical, begin by measuring your inseam. This measurement, along with your height, will give you an indication of the mountain bike size you need. While each bike is different, manufacturers will usually publish guidelines that will be useful in sizing your bike correctly.
While items like seat and handlebar heights can be adjusted, ensure you have enough clearance over the top bar and are able to reach the pedals comfortably.
The Racery has an outstanding selection of mountain bikes for all sizes, so you can rest assured that you'll always be able to find the right fit.
