Mountain Bike Quick Sizing Guide

Mountain Bikes tend to use the T-Shirt sizing of S, M, L etc. or will have the seat tube measurement in INCHES. Why mountain bikes are inches and road bikes are CM who knows, but the part of the frame being measured is the same.

As a rule of thumb if you can identify your size as Medium on one brand, you should use that as a starting point on another brand too.

If you already own a medium mountain bike for example and are comfortable with the sizing, start there.
 

What is your height? Your suggested bicycle size
Feet/Inches Centimetres Suggested Size
4'10" - 5'2" 148cm - 158cm X-Small (14-15")
5'2" - 5'6" 158cm - 168cm Small (15.5-17")
5'6" - 5'10" 168cm - 178cm Medium (17.5-18")
5'10" - 6'1" 178cm - 185cm Large (18.5-20")
6'1" - 6'4" 185cm - 193cm X-Large (20.5-22")
