I think this fits best in the Mechanics section, but if not feel free to move this:
This deals not so much with measuring the standover of a bicyle, but measuring (what Rivendell Bicycle Works calls) your "floor-to-pubic-bone" height. In other words, YOUR standover height.
Most instructions suggest taking this measurement "in your stocking feet." However, shouldnt you measure from the floor to your crotch while wearing whatever shoes you typically cycle in? No one, as far as I know rides in their socks. It wont be much of a difference, but if you wear MTB shoes, it could be almost an inch couldnt it?
Thoughts on this?
