Which bike will best fit me?

All of our bikes are unisex and are designed to accommodate a wide range of rider heights. Most people between 5'2" and 6'2" can ride our bikes comfortably, although different models have slightly different recommended height ranges, as outlined in the “sizing” section on each model's web page.

Generally, people with slightly shorter legs tend to be the most comfortable on any of the Step-Thru models, which offer the lowest standover heights of our bikes (the standover height is the distance from the top tube on the frame to the ground).

If you are near the lower or upper recommended heights for a particular model, your individual proportions, especially your leg length, will determine whether you can ride that bike comfortably. An excellent discussion of stand-over height can be found HERE

Before you buy, look at the frame geometry info-graphics on each bike's web page to ensure the measurements will provide for a good fit. Select a model below to view the product page for that specific bike:
