Sizing Guide

WHAT SIZE BIKE IS RIGHT FOR ME?

As a rider you want to feel comfortable on your bicycle. You want to make sure that your riding position is comfortable with some consideration for efficiency. So how do you choose the correct size?

The easiest way is to estimate the correct size based on your height, refer to the reference table below.

Fortunately, Chappelli bicycles only come in a two sizes fit most solution, which makes it a lot easier to work out which bike is likely to be best for you.

If you are between sizes you may want to go up a size as a lot people prefer to have a little more room and be a little more stretched out on a bicycle, so generally a slightly bigger frame might be better suited. 

However if you are new to cycling or don’t feel very confident on a bike, perhaps a smaller frame would work better for you in terms of control and confidence.

Seat and stem heights can be adjusted to adapt to most riders.

HOW ARE BICYCLE SIZES WORKED OUT?

Bicycle sizes on road bikes and commuter bicycles are measured in centimetres and usually refer to the length of distance between the seat tube (where the saddle goes in) to the head tube (where the handlebars and front fork are). It usually corresponds to the length of the top tube if it runs straight from the seat tube to the head tube. The longer the top tube is the more stretched out you will be. Chappelli Cycles mostly use square frame geometry which means the length of the top tube is also the length of the seat tube.
