Steps to Fitting a Bike Frame:
- Straddle the bike and stand in front of the seat
- Lift the front and rear wheels off of the ground until it touches you
- If it is a road bike, there should be 1-2 inches between the tires and the ground
- For a mountain or hybrid bike, there should s be 3-4 inches
Another way to test the fit of a frame: When you’re sitting on the bike and one pedal is pushed all the way down, there should be a slight bend in your knee."
