Bike Sizing FAQ

What size bike is the best for me?

General rule of thumb for Franklin & Willow models: If you’re shorter than 5’7”, you’ll want a Small/Medium. If you’re 5’7” or taller, you’ll want a Large.

General rule of thumb for Driggs & Bedford models: If you’re shorter than 6’, you’ll want a Medium. If you’re 6’ or taller, you’ll want a Large. For the Bedford models, if you're shorter than 5'10" you'll want a size small.

Our Lorimer and Roebling models can accomodate riders anywhere from 4'11" - 6'4".

You can take a more specific look at our carefully-considered frame design on the product pages for each particular model. The size guides can be found on each model's page, next to the size selection boxes.

Can I test ride a bike before I buy?

Absolutely! If you're in NYC, you can visit our Greenpoint Showroom where we'll be more than happy to let you test ride any of our models.

Alternatively, you can find a stocking dealer local to you via our Store Locator. It's important to note that we don't have direct access to our dealers inventory levels, and always suggest you call ahead to confirm their inventory before heading over.
