So you want to invest in an electric bike but aren’t sure what size you need. Well sizing for an electric bicycle is extremely important for your control, comfort and safety. We offer FREE sizing advice to all our customers in store. Please feel free to visit us at our Electric Bike Superstore in Shoreham By Sea, West Sussex!
Why you shouldn’t size yourself online using a calculator:
Everyone is different! Just because you might be 5 foot 6 it doesn’t mean your inside leg measurement or your arm reach will be a fixed size. The calculations used are so general they can confine you to choosing an ebike that may be too big or too small for you or your riding style. You really cannot beat sitting on an ebike in a showroom and actually feeling the machine beneath you. This is the best way of gauging your own confidence taking the additional weight of the ebike compared to a normal machine.
Some websites will profess to having a size calculator that can work out the perfect sized electric bike for you. Please avoid these at all costs and visit a proper bricks n mortar electric bike supplier like ourselves. Getting the correct sizing is as important as buying from somewhere that can offer real after sales service. An electric bike is not a cheap investment and for that reason you should use your brain when researching them.
