Hybrid Bike Sizing Guide

Hybrid bikes as the name suggests are a blend of a road bike and a mountain bike. The fit is a little more precise than a mountain bike, and a little less than a road bike, so you do see a mixture of t-shirt style sizing and measurements in CM and INCHES too. The fit will be more relaxed than a classic road bike though, and is designed to be a little more forgiving and upright.

What is your height? Your suggested bicycle size
Feet/Inches Centimetres Suggested Size
4'10" - 5'2" 148cm - 158cm X-Small (13 - 14") 33 - 37cm
5'2" - 5'6" 158cm - 168cm Small (15 - 16") 38 - 42cm
5'6" - 5'10" 168cm - 178cm Medium (17 - 18") 43 - 47cm
5'10" - 6'1" 178cm - 185cm Large (19 - 20") 48 - 52cm
6'1" - 6'4" 185cm - 193cm X-Large (21 - 22") 53 - 57cm

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
