    I would imagine you measure it in the same place you measure any bicycle, only you use inches instead of centimeters.

    "The old standard system was to measure from the center of the bottom bracket to the very top of the seat tube."


    NOT from the top of the seatpost to the bracket.

    1 inch = 2.54 cm or 25.4mm
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
