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.

Nicht dass gelbe vom Ei. Billiger China-Rahmen, extrem billiger und empfindlicher Lack. Die Komponenten die nicht von Rose kommen sind gut. Lieber in einen vernünftigen Stahl-Rahmen Made in Germany investieren, auch wenn man dann 2kg mehr Gesamtgewicht hat!

Bestes Fahrrad was ich kenne. In meiner Stadt gibt es kein geileres Rad. Blue Haze war meine Wahl und ich bin mit der Di2 mehr als zufrieden. Shimano grxrx810 einfach grandios.

Tolles Fahrrad, aber die Qualität mehr als fraglich. Sattelstütze musste ausgetauscht werden (Mitteilung von Rose wg. Bruchgefahr). Für den eigenständigen Austausch einen Gutschein über 75.- erhalten. Kette musste nach nicht mal 1000 km getauscht werden (Geräuschkulisse) und vorgestern hat sich urplötzlich der Kurbelarm gelöst. Alles innerhalb eines Jahres. Eine einzige Enttäuschung und mittlerweile ungern mit diesem Fahrrad unterwegs.

Leicht, schnell, gute Bereifung für den Niederrhein, macht sauspass nach so vielen Jahren Rennradpause
musste etwas am Rädchen ausprobieren, um die Gänge sauber zu schalten aber jetzt perfekt

Schönes Rad ... aber:
1) Gewindeöse in Gabel linke Seite unten war zu tief eingesetzt
2) kein Hinweis in Gebrauchsanleitung, dass Ortlieb Fork Pack mit Gabel nicht kompatibel ist OBWOHL das Rad mit den Packs in Bocholt steht, es mit den Packs in Bildern auf der Rose Website abgebildet ist und c) Influencer die Kombo explizit bewerben.
Kundendienst hat anfangs versucht erstes Problem durch mich lösen zu lassen. Zweites Problem hat Risse in Gabel verursacht, die einen Gabeltausch notwendig machen.
Viel Aufwand auf meiner Seite, wenig Kulanz auf Seiten von Rose für eigenen Fehler.

Tolles Rad, sehr gut vormontiert. Die Schweißnähte um das Tretlager fallen bei der ansonsten guten Verarbeitung auf. Schade
