Current industry trends are making bikes longer, but people have stayed the same. Most riders are sold bikes that are too big. How can you your bike is too big for you?
- It’s harder to turn, hop and do fun things.
- You feel like the bike is riding you.
- You feel like you’re not strong enough to make the bike do what you want.
- You feel new pain in your body.
- And you crash more.
If you are 5’8″ tall or shorter, and you’re on a modern trail or enduro bike, it’s an almost certainty that your bike is too long for you. The bike industry has left average-to-shorter riders behind.
Don’t trust the size charts
When you go to a bike company’s website, all you’re given is the classic rider height/bike size chart. Five foot four to five foot seven is a small, and so on. The issue is this:
Over the years bikes have gotten longer as the industry follows the “longer is better” trend. When I say longer, I mean the frame reach. That’s the horizontal distance from the frame’s bottom bracket to the top of the head tube. This number determines how short your cockpit can be, and it’s the 0nly number to look at when assessing frame size.
When I say bikes have gotten longer, I mean it literally. For example, here are the reach numbers for the 2013 and 2023 Santa Cruz Nomad. The 2023 size small is longer than the 2013 size XL. And the size charts for 2013 and 2023 both say size small is for riders 5’1″ to 5’5″. How can that be true?
The RideLogic difference
There are plenty of bike fit systems out there, but they are all based on a static position for pedaling in the saddle. If you need help positioning your saddle, especially for a medical issue, these systems can be very helpful. The issue is, these systems ignore the requirements of dynamic mountain biking. In many cases the “perfect” fit in the lab works against you when it comes to actual fun riding on technical trails.
The lasers and computers might be impressive, but a classic static bike fit does not improve your off-road riding. As a matter of fact, the advice I received from Retül made my bike handle worse:
The RideLogic system is optimized for dynamic — aka fun, safe and flowy — mountain biking.
The RideLogic system is simple, logical and proven by bike designers, physicists, engineers and biomechanical experts — and thousands of riders like you. It will help you choose and dial in your
- Frame style and size
- Stem length and rise
- Handlebar rise and sweep
- How many spacers to put under your stem
- Handlebar width
- Saddle position
- Crank length
When your bike fits perfectly per the RideLogic method, magic happens. Everything feels easier, and you see new possibilites. Often, Lee’s students tell him they love some old bike from college. It’s not fancy but they’ve always loved it and still ride it often. Almost every time, that bike just happens to fit according to RideLogic logic. You can’t know how great a bike feels until you feel a perfect fit. After that, there’s no going back.
Stop guessing and wasting money. Start having even more fun on your rides!
