I know this sounds like a dumb rookie question, but how would I go about measuring a Y frame bike? I never really knew how to do this:) Thanks in advance for any responses.

There is so much standover height that it is irrelevant to fit.
Measure horizontally from the centre of the head-tube to the centre of the seatpost. You can compare this "effective top tube length" with other bikes. The reach of a bike is always more critical than the amount of exposed seatpost.
