How do I calculate bike frame size?
The frame size is usually measured as the distance between the top of the seat tube (where the seat clamp holds the seat post) and the center of the bottom bracket. Sometimes, the center or top of the top tube is chosen as the first point.
Should TT bike be smaller than road bike?
For a good starting point, we’d recommend looking at a TT frame that has a reach roughly 2cm shorter than your road bike, which typically means going down a size. Typically road bikes are dolled out based on top tube length, which serves as a pretty reliable indicator of whether a frame will fit someone.
Does bike frame size really matter?
Riding a bike that is too small or too big can result in a number of problems. Riding a frame that is the wrong size will eventually lead to pain in your lower back, especially if you’re on a road bike. Adjusting a seatpost or handlebar won’t compensate for the frame.
Why do pros ride smaller frames?
Pro cyclists choose smaller frames to acquire a more aerodynamic position thanks to the lower head tube. Also, compact frames are more agile, easier to manipulate, and have a shorter wheelbase resulting in more stability when cornering.
What’s the difference between a triathlon bike and a time trial bike?
If you put a triathlon bike next to a time trial bike, for the untrained eye it’s hard to spot the difference. They look identical and both with aerodynamic tubing and aerobars. Time trial frame sizing is quite different from triathlon frame sizing. Triathlon bikes typically (not always) have steeper seat tube angles.
What makes a good time trial bike fit?
Lucky for most of you, this position disappeared years ago. People ahead of you suffered so that you can achieve comfort and efficiency. A good time trial bike fit should be comfortable for the duration of your bike ride or race. You will also generate more power and increase efficiency with a quality, comfortable bike fit.
Which is the correct size for a bike?
Our bike size calculator will help you to determine the correct frame size. It is very important that the bike fits your body in order to optimize comfort and performance. The frame size is generally between 46 to 67. In order to find out which size is appropriate for you, you need to measure your inseam length.
