What size bicycle frame do you have?
Bike frames come in all sorts of different shapes, designs, and colors… but they also come in a number of different sizes.
My friend, Josh, for example (pictured above and on the cover of Bicycle Touring: The Movie) is nearly 6 feet 5 inches tall (or 1.95 meters) and because he is so tall, he requires a much larger bicycle frame than most other cyclists.
During your search for a touring bicycle… or a bicycle of any kind, you’re likely to discover that bicycle frames come in a number of different sizes… and depending on the company you purchase your bicycle through, you may see the size of your frame depicted in centimeters (such as 52, 54, or 56 cm) or in general sizes (such as Small, Medium and Large).
Just out of curiosity, what size bicycle frame do you have on your bike? Leave a comment below and let me know 1) how tall you are… and 2) what size bicycle frame do you have.
For example: I’m 6 foot 1 inch… and I ride a 56cm touring bike.
