      SIZING GUIDE

      frame-size-image

      It is important to choose the right size bike as a correctly fitting cycle will be more comfortable to ride and enable you to ride faster, further and in more control.  The best way to choose the most appropriate size for yourself and, your intended riding style will ALWAYS be to visit your local dealer and sit on/test a few different bikes.  This is without doubt a more accurate guide to sizing than any guidance you will find online.

       

      However, if this is impractical for you, you can use the following advice to find an appropriate frame size – just bear in mind that personal preference can play a large part in selecting a frame size and so, this information is not guaranteed to be correct for everyone…

      Firstly, you must measure your inside leg measurement.  To find this out correctly it is best to use the following method:

      Stand upright with your back to a wall and with your shoes off and legs together.

      Take a pencil and mark the wall at crotch level and measure the distance to the floor.

      You can now use this measurement as a guide to which size bike you would like depending on the style of riding (touring, sportif etc). If your measurement falls between two sizes try to bear in mind your overall height. If your legs are long for your height you should perhaps err towards the smaller frame size. If your legs are short for your overall height then maybe the larger frame size would be better for you.

      Frame with a horizontal top tube

      If you are purchasing a bike with a horizontal top tube then use the following formula:

      Inside leg measurement (cm) x 0.69

      The result of this sum will give you the frame size you require. If you fall between sizes we advise you go for the smaller size.

       

      Frame with a sloping top tube

      If you are purchasing a bike with a sloping top tube then use the following formula:

      Inside leg measurement (cm) x 0.64

      The result of this sum will give you the frame size you require. If you fall between sizes we advise you go for the smaller size.
      If you are unsure please ask your local Dawes dealer who will be able to correctly size you for your bike.

      Our adult bikes are measured by their frame size. This is the length of the seat tube measured from the centre of the bolt which fastens the chainwheel to the top of the seat tube.

      Once you have your bike you can make other small adjustments to aid your comfort. The saddle height can be adjusted along with its fore and aft position as can the height of the handlebar stem. The position of the brake levers around the handlebar can also be tailored to suit your personal riding style.

      Your Dawes dealer will help you with this and details can also be found in your user manual.
