What if I’m between sizes?

It’s a frequent dilemma for cyclists to be torn between two bike frame sizes, given that many manufacturers create their designs with size overlaps. Here’s a general guideline you can follow.

  • A smaller frame allows for better bike control, especially during swift stops, sharp turns, or on technical terrains. It puts you in a more aerodynamic, race-centric stance. While this can bolster speed and nimbleness, it might come at the cost of comfort during prolonged rides.
  • A larger frame promotes a more upright riding position particularly during relaxed or extended rides. Although a larger frame provides a comfort-centric ride, it might not match the nimbleness of a smaller bike, especially when quick maneuvers or tight turns are in play.

Still on the fence? Your local bike shop can offer personalized advice. Alternatively, a professional bike fitting session can help fine-tune your choice for optimal comfort and performance.
