THE FOLLOWING CALCULATION WILL HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT BIKE FRAME SIZE AND SADDLE HEIGHT:

Road/Gravel Inside leg x 0,66 = Frame size in cm
MTB Size S: 155 – 172 cm body height
Size M: 173 – 182 cm body height
Size L: 183 – 192 cm body height
Size XL: >192 cm body height
Fitness
or
Inside leg x 0,61 = Frame size in cm
Inside leg x 0,24 = Frame size in inches
Hybrid/Touring
or
Inside leg x 0,61 = Frame size in cm
Inside leg x 0,24 = Frame size in inches
Inside leg x 0,885 = Saddle height on all bikes

If you are exactly between two sizes, you'll have the choice: Choose the smaller frame if you prefer a "racing position" and the bigger frame if you prefer a more comfortable "touring position".

See our video step-by-step instructions on how to determine your frame size. We'll explain you how to easily measure shoulder width, inside leg length and arm length yourself.

    Im Mai bestellt und jetzt Ende Oktober endlich angekommen! Die Lieferung lief tip top, die Schaltung war nicht perfekt eingestellt, aber das liess sich schnell regeln. Das Fahrrad ist wirklich top, Sehr bequeme Sitzposition, gutes Tempo auf der Strasse (zumindest im Vergleich zu meinem vorherigen MTB). Und ich muss schon sagen, ich hätte nicht erwartet, dass es live sogar noch schöner aussieht!! Definitiv jeden Rappen wert!

    Fahrrad kam sogar früher als erwartet. Nur leider ohne Sattelklemme. Service war aber super und sehr hilfsbereit. Sattelklemme wurde in einem riesigen Paket geschickt. Die Einzelteile lagen lose im Paket und natürlich hat die Schraube gefehlt. Musste ich im Baumarkt holen.

    Hats off and helmets on!!! This bike has true state of art DNA for modern engineering approach bound with oldschool tradition for pure joy dive into cycling freedom spirit. Its universal nature only starts with eye-catching but also functional design and continues further & further as you find yourself tempted to ride more and more...It is certainly not for those who prefer smooth feel or suspension comfort on bikes. You have to be a bit more crazy, addicted to certain feel to enjoy the raw, fun ride full of thinking about the best curve to find on your route...I don’ t think the nowadays hype for such bikes is too exaggerated when you know what you exactly expect from it. Thank you Rose for overcoming mine expectations totally. I have to say even it took desperately long to finally get one that you keep your word and shipment was quite precise comparing first estimated date in order. Also Michael from radverkauf department has replied to me to confirm everything necessary. People don’t hate big effort and hard work of the team, don’ t be only self oriented as none of us fully understand what they have to deal or struggle now with to fulfill all customers expectations...

    Mein erstes online gekauftes Rad. Bin sehr zufrieden. Macht richtig Spaß damit zu fahren. Die absolut richtige Wahl. Qualität ist super. Alles wie beschrieben. Nur die Schaltung könnte etwas besser eingestellt sein. Ansonsten Daumen hoch.

    Ein Top Gravelbike.
    Hat lange gedauert, aber desto größer war die Freude.
    Ich würde jeden das Fahrrad weiter empfehlen.
    Bin allerdings ein Anfänger was Gravelbike angeht.
    Aber man erreicht Geschwindigkeiten und Entfernungen die man mit einem Trekking Rad, was ich vorher hatte, nicht erreichen kann.
    Stück Freiheit würde ich sagen.
    Es tut richtig gut, auf dem Fahrrad zu fahren.
    Und man wird nicht müde wenn man über 2½ Stunden gefahren ist.
    Danach ist man immer noch fit.
    Also Gemütlichkeit perfekt.

    Immer wieder ... ein Gravelbike 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

    Ich fahre das Backroad nun seit über einem halben Jahr und bereue meine Entscheidung, dieses Bike gekauft zu haben nicht eine Sekunde.
    Ich hab viel Modelle und Hersteller verglichen und bin immer wieder bei Rose gelandet, welches mich mit Qualität, Preis/Leistungsverhältnis und Liebe zum Detail überzeugt hat.
    Ich fahre das Bike in jeglichem Terrain und bin mir auch nicht zu schade das Teil auch ordentlich zu belasten und herauszufordern.
    Fazit, es lohnt sich das Backroad zu kaufen da es für einen super fairen Preis einem alles bietet und ermöglicht zu fahren. Eine schnelle Runde auf Asphalt, durch den Wald oder fürs Bikepacking.
    Immer wieder schön!

    Unglaublich mieser Kundenservice. Rad im März bestellt mit Liefertermin im September. Eine Woche vor Liefertermin wurde die Bestellung storniert. Auf Nachfrage kann eine automatisierte Mail mit dem Hinweis ich koennte das Rad neu bestellen. Naechstes lieber zum Händler um die Ecke die haben auch schicke Raeder.

    Steige jeden Tag mit Freuden drauf! Ein paar Kleinigkeiten wie Bremse und Gangschaltung musst etwas angepasst werden, aber das ist völlig im Rahmen sicherlich anderswo nicht anders.
    Es gab zunächst ein Problem mit der Bestellung, bei der mir der Support super helfen konnte!
