Fitting Your Bike Are you confused about how you should fit a bike to your particular body dimensions? Have you been reading, found the terms Merxx or French Fit, and don’t know what you need? Every style of riding is different- in how you fit the bike to you, and the sizing of the bike itself. It’s more than just measuring your height, reach and inseam. With the help of Bike Fitting, you’ll be able to find the right fit for your frame size, style of riding, and your particular dimensions. Here ya’ go…..the location for everything fit related.

Found a website that compares bikes geometry (visual & data) and it's pretty amazing

Hi,

I've been looking at buying a new and modern carbon frame . I've only been riding steel frame from the 50s to the 90s so the new geometries and the stack/reach ratio have been stressing me out a bit, especially as there are more and more brands that are only available or the model is too old to be in stock. Also, I feel like old steel frame were easier to adapt without looking weird, especially on the stem's height. I'm between sizes and modern frame don't allow much slack on the stem's height.

Anyway, I found this website that will compare the geometry of many many bikes. https://bikeinsights.com/compare

I imagine some people already know about this, but I got excited and thought others might enjoy it. This is super geeky, maybe even pointless some might say, but I think the fact that I can compare something I've tried in-store with a frame that is only available online is pretty cool. They also have some even more geeky blog post on the data behind bikes' geometry.

I'm not sure about their scale on "upright to aggressive" as the Sequoia should be more endurance than the Strato but maybe it's within its own category. Anyway, nice to have a visual!



Cinelli Strato Faster VS Specialized Sequoia

Very nice information helps to understand frame geometry. Have a look into 99Spokes.com

Meh. The problem is they have to have whatever bike you're considering already in their database. I like BikeGeo better. True, you have to enter the data fields yourself, but then any make/model becomes an option.

Do these sites have guidance for knowing what are the limits of stack and reach that you can use?

Yes, these sites have general information about 'trail' 'seat angle' 'front center'. Want to get schooled on frame geometry? hang around with frame welders and engineers with cold beer.

Would you say you are schooled on frame geometry?

And I'd actually rather hang around with a custom framebuilder than the welder. As far as an engineer, I have one.

I don't know what the limits of stack and reach are because it is hard to find information about the topic. Do you know of web sites and literature and link us up?

First articles on stack and reach were from slowtwitch.com.
