The right bike size

Find the right size and seating position for your bike. The right riding position and size are crucial to get the best out of your Van Nicholas bike.

How do I determine the appropriate frame size?

The right frame size varies depending on the bike and the individual person.

Determining the right frame size is very important when buying a new bike, as you want it to feel perfect and comfortable while riding. However, the right frame size depends on the specific bike, your desired riding position and the position of the handlebars and saddle. In addition, your height and proportions play a role. Because no two bikes are the same, the ideal frame size can vary from model to model. It is therefore advisable never to buy a bike without first checking the correct frame size.
