When we need to buy a bicycle, what is the most important factor? Paint outside? Look at the color? Or look at the characteristics of the frame? In fact, the bicycle factory: The first element is to see whether the size of the frame is suitable for you.
The bicycle frame in the past is very simple. The front triangle of the frame is very simple. The upper tube is basically flush with the ground. If we can’t imagine it, then we can think of an old commuter bike, which is basically that type. It’s easy to choose the right bike for you. Usually, Guangzhou Bicycle Factory takes the distance from the bottom bracket of the frame to the top of the seat tube as the size of the frame. If you know what size bike is suitable for you, you can also change to a different brand of bike. You can choose the right bike at any time.
However, as the shape of the frame changed, the top tube became more and more inclined, and a more compressed frame appeared. The old-fashioned selection method has been unable to completely accurately find the right frame. At present, most of the Guangzhou bicycle factories give a frame size for everyone to choose, among them, there are 16 inches, 17 inches, 18 inches, 19 inches and so on. Generally speaking, according to the height distinction, 16-inch frame is suitable for 160-170CM, 17-inch is suitable for 165-175, 18-inch is suitable for 170-185, and so on. However, this is a hard number after all. In the end, which frame is more suitable for you, or you have to try it in the store, this is the best and safest way.
