Bike riding tips Choose the Right Bike Size

When selecting a bike, height makes right. Brands differ, but use this rule of thumb for frames: As you straddle a road bike just in front of the saddle, you should have at least one inch of clearance from your crotch to the top of the frame. (Allow at least two inches for a mountain bike or a cruiser.)
