Rider height and weight also plays a big part in choosing your perfect ride. Bikes of different levels are designed with a range of geometries to suit riders of all heights and sizes. While there’s no set rule on what sized bike you should ride (in the end it’s all about personal preference) we created a rough guide for which bike you you should feel most comfortable on.
