Size Guides

   Words by Pauls Cycles

Size Guides are a great way to help you find the right bike, but we always recommend visiting our store to view and sit on a range of bikes in person.

As with other items like shoes and clothing, all our brands size a little differently and each brand has their own sizing matrix. It can be quite tricky to compare between them, so we have created the tables below to give you a guide to how the brands classify their sizes, how they differ and what size you might be looking for.

This Size Guide is based on an average build, if you have shorter arms or longer legs for example you will need to consider this when purchasing a bike.

Stem length, Handlebar width and even Crank length can be changed to achieve the ideal riding position. A Bike Fit can help you achieve the most comfortable and efficient riding position.
