This is the first step because different kinds, or types, of bikes are measured and fit differently.
Your correct size road bike, for example, with a higher top tube (greater C-C or C-t size) and measured in centimeters; whereas, your correct size mountain bike, with has a lower top tube (lower C-C or C-T size) and is measured in inches.
So, we answer what kind of bike should I buy, then we can figure out what size bike you need. Relax, it’s easy! 🙂
Simply answer four straightforward questions which inquire about your riding habits and how you plan to use the bike, they are:
- Where will you ride?
- When will you ride?
- How will you ride?
- What riding position is best (most comfortable) for you?
- An optional fifth question asks about your handlebar preference.
