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.

  • Description

    Uncomplicated, fast, versatile – those are the ingredients built into our GROUND CONTROL. The newly-designed frame comes with a modern geometry, making it longer, flatter, and more suitable for trails, while losing none of its classic touring character. Equipped with a RockShox Revelation RC DebonAir fork, the satisfying suspension performance means it can even handle high speeds on rough stretches. This is matched with a RockShox Deluxe Select+ RT DebonAir rear shock providing unbeatable trail control and an easy to use platform setting. The SLX drivetrain from SHIMANO proves that you can expect quality and convincing performance for an attractive price. Fitted with Continental's Mountain King III tyres, Sunringlé's Düroc 35 Expert wheelset will tempt you to let it rip!


    * approx. 14.3 kg, may vary by up to +/- 5 % due to manufacturing tolerances, weight for evil pepper green frame, size M, without pedals

    Rosebikes ist der letzte Sauhaufen. Mein neues Rad wurde angeblich von Bocholt nach Berlin geschickt, wo ich es abholen wollte. Das Rad ist jetzt angeblich schon so lange unterwegs, in der gleichen Zeit hätte ich es zu Fuß von Bocholt nach Berlin getragen. Das Rad ist verschollen. Für Bocholt ist der Auftrag erledigt. Berlin reagiert nicht. Und Rose sitzt auf meinen 2200 Euro.
