Why Is Road
Bike Sizing Important?
- Safety. First and foremost, if you are less likely to have an accident if your road bike sizing is correct, but this applies for any style of bike. If you are comfortable
you can easily concentrate on what is happening around you are will not be prone to concentration lapses.
- Speed. A road bike will be faster in certain setups and you can usually tell by looking at it . for example, if the
handles are lower and quite far away from the seat then this would be faster than if they were closer and higher up. Of course, this is a fairly distinct style and if it's one that interests you then if you don’t get it right, it can be uncomfortable,
especially over longer periods.
- Effort. You will find it much easier to cycle for longer if you have a good sized bike. You can use the road bike sizing chart that is
shown later on to decide which would be the best for you.

It doesn't stop there either - there are many reasons why you should look to get an appropriately sized road bike, some are more common sense than others.
Most people will want to protect their purchase
especially when it is not uncommon to spend 3 or 4 figures on a bike.
By paying a little extra you can often pick up the best road bike to suit your uses. Here are also a few more
reasons to do so;
Comfort - there is no point in spending your hard earned cash if you are not going to be comfortable on the bike you decide to get. While you can usually get away with generic sizing and me comfortable enough you might
find that a quick measure up persuades you to change the size you get (again refer to the road bike sizing chart that follows).
Values for money - if you don’t get on with your bike, the chances are you won’t be using it
very much or will forget about it altogether. This doesn’t make a particularly good investment. Take a minute to ensure the bike you purchase isn’t too small and is the right size to reduce the chance of this happening. (of course, you will still
have to stay motivated).
