SIZING

Here at Giant Knox City, we are firm believers that a good bike is one that suits the style and size of our riders. Think of us as professional matchmakers of bikes and riders.

We endeavour to provide the same level of expertise and shopping experience to our online crowd. There are a few things to consider when choosing the correct bike size for yourself. Here's our guide to bike sizing. 

And of course, if you have any questions, you are more than welcome to drop us a message in the chat, or give us a call at 03 9887 0073. We are here to help.

Sizing Charts





 

For each model, there is deliberate overlap between each size. If you fall in the overlap region between the 2 sizes, the following are some of the factor that you may want to consider:

In general, the smaller the frame size will be slightly lighter, stiffer (frame tubes are closer together) and more nimble; while larger frame size will offer a slightly more compliant ride. 

Female riders have proportionally shorter torso, shorter reach in general. We therefore tend to recommend them being on the smaller frame size. 

The proportion of the upper to lower body is also another important consideration. Riders with a shorter torso may find the smaller frame to be more comfortable. 

The type of riding should also be taken into consideration. For instance, with mountain bikes, the smaller frame size will offer more standover clearance and maybe more preferable for hard-core applications. For cross country riding, the larger frame size maybe more preferable to maximise your pedalling efficiency and stability at higher speeds. 

Last but not least, rider weight should also be considered. Heavier riders may need the larger frame, especially with some of our full suspension bikes where suspension spring weights may be firmer on larger frame sizes.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
