How do you know if bike frame is too big?
If you want to be able to stand with your feet flat on the ground while straddling the top tube with your bike between your knees, you should be able to do so. You may be riding on a frame that is too big if you have difficulty turning or need to sit up straight to reach the handlebars.
Is it better to get a bike too big or too small?
A smaller or larger frame is not necessarily better for everyone, and making broad statements about frame size is nearly always dangerous. If you first determine your riding posture, the ideal choice for you will almost certainly become much more obvious. Consider bike fit to be the holy trinity of comfort, power, and efficiency in terms of transportation.
Is it better to size up or down for mountain bikes?
It all depends on the bike in question and how it will be used. If you need something swift and agile, go down a size. If you want stability at fast speeds, then go for a larger size. If you are actually between sizes, you may adjust for the gap in most sizes by changing the stem length by around 20mm.
Is it better to get a bigger or smaller bike frame?
If your arm spread is significantly more than your height, consider a larger frame. If it’s shorter, go for the smaller size instead. The reach to the handlebars will be greater on a larger bicycle. If your arms are proportionately longer than your body, you will most certainly feel more comfortable in a larger frame.
