Bike Size Guide

The best way to size your rider’s new bike is by Inside Leg measurement.

By all means supplement with height and age as a guide, but Inside Leg is more accurate as there is a large spread of leg lengths/heights for each age. This is easy and only takes a few seconds;

  • Stand your rider in socks against a wall
  • Put a small book between their legs (like a saddle, high as comfortable) and against the wall
  • Ask your rider to move away, measure from the top of the book to the floor, using cm or inches.

We list Minimum Inside Leg our kids race bikes (full Geo listed below) on each product page. We measure from the floor up to the top-tube, in-front of the saddle, then minus 2-4cm for shoes, depending on age... 

The most effective method of sizing for Kids is to refer to the size chart above, referencing their Inside Leg and Height. For Youth/Adult sizes and the full geometry for HUP evo, straatrace, azure and enduro frames, take a look below..

Actual Standover (floor to top-tube, in front of saddle) on 27.5" wheels/100mm fork: 13": 59cm | 15.5": 66cm | 17.5: 69cm. Tip: If you size with the saddle slammed, they've no room to move, so (unlike Road/CX) it's better to size down.
Size Guide (height/inside leg): 13": 120cm+ (55-65cm) | 15.5"145cm+ (62-72cm) | 17.5": 155cm+ (68cm+)
Dropper Fitment: If you require a dropper post, the riders Inside leg needs to be at least equal to Seat Tube Length + Crank Length + Dropper Travel + 100mm to use the full dropper travel, otherwise only some travel will be useable.

* For small adults using the kids sizes, get in touch to confirm the best fit for you

Component Sizing Guide

Drop Handlebars: match the approx shoulder width for Road, or shoulder width +1 size up for Cyclocross

Flat Handlebars: match the approx width of their press-up position (go narrower for XC, wider for Enduro)

Cranks: take 10% of their height +5mm for crank length (Road & Triathlon cycling) or 10% of their height +10mm for crank length (Off-Road cycling). Example: 1350mm tall rider would choose 140mm for Road bike or 145mm for CX/MTB.

Stems: This isn't an exact science, but generally if the rider is at the lower end of the frameset's growth range, a shorter stem will be correct and vice-versa.

Saddle/Post: Our kids saddle is suited to younger riders and the Youth saddle for older riders (or younger riders Off-Road). But saddles are a personal thing. We have 2 choices of seat post, inline or rotary, the later is very useful for smaller riders at the lower end of the frameset's growth range being reversible to reduce the bikes effective length.
