Bike Sizing Chart

We understand that finding the right bike for your lifestyle can be a challenge, not to mention attempting to locate the right size bike after that decision has been made. There was a time long ago when finding the right bike was as easy as picking from the two or three options the local shop had to offer.

Those days are long gone.

Whether you're going with a mountain bike, a road bike, a commuter rig, an electric bike or even a BMX/Cyclocross bike, the right sizing can be the difference between loving your purchase or feeling like you've made a mistake. At Sweet Pete's, we're obsessed with helping our customers find the right "fit" for their bike. 

This conversation usually starts with height and weight.

With that in mind, we created this handy bike sizing guide for you to get an idea of what size bicycle may be the best fit for you. Don't worry, we've also done the bike size conversions for you between inches and centimeters just in case it's been a while since math class!

Of course, if you have any specific questions don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
