This measurement is intended to determine the size of the bike frame that fits to be comfortable in cycling. Frames too big or too small are not very comfortable to drive every day except for special purposes eg freestyle, trial or extreme sports. The measurement variables themselves include; height/height and length of inseam or groin distance to the ground.

Measuring your Height
Measuring your Height

  • First, take off your shoes. 
  • Stand with the back position against the wall, the position of the foot is opened with a width of less than shoulder-width apart. 
  • Assistance to measure your height from feet up to your head. 
  • Change your height in inches or centimeters (cm).

Measure inseam
Measure inseam

  • The length of your foot or bicycle inseam is different from the inseam on your shirt or the size of your jeans. 
  • Start by taking off your shoes. 
  • Stand upright on a flat and hard floor surface. 
  • Rrain the ankle +/- 5 cm. 
  • Create a wooden stick (+/- 30cm) to put in a groin/groin. 
  • The length of inseam starts from the floor to the stick in the groin. 
  • Close your inseam size in inches (in) or centimeters (cm).

In essence, these measurements will produce frame size figures using CT (Center to Top) method of calculating the distance from the center Bottom Bracket (BB) to the top of the seat tube. It also produces crank size figures calculated from the crankshaft (BB) up to the pedal axle, this is intended to make the rider more comfortable when pedals.
