What if I’m between two bike sizes?

It’s not uncommon for you to find yourself on the cusp of two sizes when choosing a bike. Most bike brands design their frames with some degree of size overlap.

So, if you find yourself straddling the fence between two sizes, here’s some guidance:

  • A smaller frame often provides you with a heightened sense of control. The reduced frame geometry can make it easier to handle the bike in tight turns, quick stops, or technical terrains. However, the smaller size typically offers a more race-ready or aggressive stance. This posture can be advantageous for speed and agility but might compromise comfort, especially on longer rides.
  • A bigger frame tends to elevate your posture on the bike, making it more upright. This stance can be more relaxed and comfortable, especially for leisure rides or longer rides. While the larger size offers comfort, it might not be as agile as its smaller counterpart. The extended frame geometry can make sudden maneuvers or sharp turns slightly more challenging.
  • If still undecided, consult your local bike shop, or consider getting a bike fit.
