What’s Your Riding Vibe?

Learn more about the types of bikes we offer and how to pick the right one for you. Different bike styles often have different sizing methods, and when you’re buying online, it’s important to make sure you have all the information you need before ordering. Selecting the correct bike size is paramount for comfort, performance, and safety. Riding a bike that's too large or too small can lead to discomfort, fatigue, or even long-term injuries. At Quick Cranks, we've streamlined the sizing process to ensure you get a bike that feels like it was custom-made just for you.

Road

If you’re a road rider at heart, seek lightweight frames and speed. Typically sized in centimeters, road bikes often require a snugger fit due to their design for speed and efficiency.

Mountain

Tearing up the trail? Focus on durable frames and shock absorption. These might be sized in inches or described as small, medium, or large. A bit of space between the rider and the top tube allows for better maneuverability on rugged terrains.

Commuting

 Make everyday riding something to look forward to - the ideal commuting bike is versatile and comfortable. These dynamic bikes might use either road or mountain bike sizing conventions. Fit is vital for the varied terrains they cover.

Touring

Adventuring by bike is easy with the right touring rig. Durability and storage options are key. Given their design for long rides, comfort is crucial. Sizing might be similar to road bikes, but with a more relaxed fit.

Size Matters: Get It Right

Quick Cranks provides detailed sizing charts based on your measurements. Grab a measuring tape, get your inseam measurement, and match it to our chart. Unsure? Our customer service is always ready to help. While different bikes may require specific measurements, the inseam is universally essential. This is the distance from the ground to your crotch. Use a measuring tape and measure against your leg, ensuring the tape is straight and snug.

Importance of the Right Fit

Comfort

The right bike size prevents strain on your back, neck, and wrists. It enables you to ride longer distances without discomfort.

Performance

A properly sized bike translates your pedal power efficiently, allowing for better speed and agility.

Safety

Overreaching or cramped positioning can affect your balance and reaction time, making accidents more likely.

Adjustments Post-Purchase

Remember, while the frame size is fundamental, other adjustments can be made for a perfect fit:

  • Seat Height and Angle: Can be modified to ensure your legs have the right extension.

  • Handlebar Height and Reach: Adjusting these can alleviate pressure on your hands and shoulders.
