Rental Bike Sizing Guidelines

Bike sizing used to be a matter of buying the largest bike you could stand over on your tiptoes, or just riding whatever your older sibling handed down to you. Nowadays, there is some science to it, but not as much as you might suspect.

Generally, bike fit depends on a few variables: your overall height, your inseam, and then those distinctive characteristics that make you you.

Let's start with the basics: taller people need bigger bikes. If you are one of those magical "between" sizes, you will generally go for the smaller of the two sizes for better handling. If your body features a long torso or long arms, you'll probably want to go with the larger size for more reach.

The chart below will get you started.
