Welcome to Our Bikes Size Guide 

BICYCLE TYPES

There are two main types of bicycles: Kid's bicycles, also known as BMX models, and Adult bicycles, also known as MTB models

KID'S BICYCLES

Kid’s bicycles are designed for children aged under 12 or less than 1.5 meters (150 cm or 59" or 4.9 feet)  in height, and usually have a wheel diameter of 12 to 24 inches

For beginners aged 2 and above with a height of 85 cm to 100 cm (1 meter), balance bikes are a good option, as they help children learn to balance, control the speed and use the brakes.

If your child is taller than 90 cm, you can go for kids bicycle with training wheels,

ADULT BICYCLES

Adults can choose from four different types of bicycles

Folding bikes

Small and easy to carry, good for short trips and fitting on buses or trains.

Hybrid bikes

Can handle different surfaces like roads and gravel, a mix between mountain and road bikes but lighter.

Mountain bikes

Built for rough terrain with shock absorbers, good for off-road adventures.

Road bikes

Light and fast, perfect for smooth roads and long-distance rides.

STEPS TO SELECTING THE CORRECT BICYCLE SIZE (Same for Kid's And Adult's Bicycles)

STEP - 01 There a several key body measurements it is wise to know before choosing your bike, but the main two are your inside leg measurement and your height.

INSIDE LEG

STEP - 02 Selecting the bicycle

If your bike’s frame is too big, it can be hard to adjust the other components for maximum comfort. General guidelines for on-road riding call for about 1-2 inches between the top of the bike frame and your inseam.

This space should be minimum 1-2 inches

STEP - 03 Once you have your bike it's important to check the saddle height.  Get on the bike, either with someone holding it or with the handlebar end propped against a wall to help keep the bike straight without you and it falling over!

Put your feet on the pedals and pedal backwards very briefly until one pedal is at its lowest position, or preferably in line with the frame seat tube. The leg on the pedal (at its lowest position) should be ever so slightly bent as shown when the heel is placed on the pedal. It should neither be completely straight or too bent (as pictured).
