I’m between bike sizes - which size should I choose?

If you're between sizes, we always recommend trying out the bike you want to make sure to get the one that's just right for you.

However, as a general rule, if you're between sizes with road and adventure bikes such as Colibri and Camino, you'll usually need to go up a size but opt for a shorter stem.

With mountain bikes, you will usually need to go down a size. However, this does depend on your riding style. If you like to be nimble, you'll want to go for the smaller bike. If you want stability, you'll want the larger bike.

We are able to build bikes with different stem lengths to tweak the fit for you - just let us know when you place the order.
