Calculate frame size

cm
Frame height:    
     

The right size of your hardtail mountain-bike:
The Inside leg length is multiplied by 0.226 and thus you get the theoretical value of the frame size in inch. One inch equals 2.54 cm.

If the theoretical value is in-between two sizes, the following rule of thumb can be applied:

  • choose the smaller size when riding athletically
  • choose the larger size when riding tour-orientated
How to determine your Inside leg length:
The Inside leg length or stride height is the length of the inside of the leg. The most accurate way to measure your stride length is to use a spirit level and a tape measure or folding rule. Stand barefoot on a flat surface, clamp the spirit level horizontally between your legs and measure the distance from the upper edge of the spirit level to the ground. This value corresponds to your stride length.

Alternatively you may select the right frame size according to your height with the help of the chart below. This only serves as a rough guide though:

Body size Frame size in cm
150 - 160 cm 14" 35 cm
160 - 170 cm 16" 41 cm
170 - 180 cm 18" 46 cm
180 - 190 cm 20" 51 cm
190 - 200 cm 22" 56 cm

The right size of your fullsuspension-bike:
The Inside leg length is multiplied by 0.225 and thus you get the theoretical value of the frame size in inch. One inch equals 2.54 cm.

If the theoretical value is in-between two sizes, the following rule of thumb can be applied:

  • choose the smaller size when riding athletically
  • choose the larger size when riding tour-orientated
How to determine your Inside leg length:
The Inside leg length, stride length or height is the length of the inside of the leg. The most accurate way to measure your stride length is to use a spirit level and a tape measure or folding rule. Stand barefoot on a flat surface, clamp the spirit level horizontally between your legs and measure the distance from the upper edge of the spirit level to the ground. This value corresponds to your inseam.

Body size Frame size in cm
155 - 165 cm 14" - 15" 35 - 38 cm
165 - 170 cm 15" - 16" 38 - 41 cm
170 - 175 cm 16" - 17" 41 - 43 cm
175 - 180 cm 17" - 18" 43 - 46 cm
180 - 185 cm 18" - 19" 46 - 48 cm
185 - 190 cm 19" - 21" 48 - 53 cm
190 - 195 cm 21" - 22" 53 - 56 cm
195 - 200 cm 22" - 23" 56 - 58 cm

The right size of your Sport-Touring Cycle:
Frame-size in cm: multiply your Inside leg length by the factor 0.61.
Frame size in inch: multiply your Inside leg length by the factor 0.24.

If the theoretical value lies between two sizes, the following rule of thumb can be applied:

  • Rather the smaller frame size when riding sportsmanlikely
  • Rather the next frame in size when riding tour-orientated
  • Deduct approx. 5 cm (or 2 inches respectively) of the theoretical size when using spring-mounted seat posts.

The Inside leg length, stride length or height is the length of the inside of the leg. The most accurate way to measure your stride length is to use a spirit level and a tape measure or folding rule. Stand barefoot on a flat surface, clamp the spirit level horizontally between your legs and measure the distance from the upper edge of the spirit level to the ground.

195 - 200 cm 24" 61 cm

The right size of your road bike and triathlon bike:
The Inside leg length is multiplied by 0.665 and thus you get the theoretical value of the frame size in cm. The frame size of the triathlon bike is approximately 3.5 - 5 cm smaller.

If the theoretical value is in-between two sizes, the following rule of thumb can be applied:

  • choose the smaller size when riding competition-orientated
  • choose the larger size when riding tour-orientated

The right size of your Trekking or Touring Cycle:
Frame-size in cm: multiply your Inside leg length by the factor 0.66.
Frame size in inch: multiply your Inside leg length by the factor 0.259.
