I often get asked “what’s the best bike manufacturer?” or “what bike should I get?”. When the truth is most people are asking the wrong question — they should be asking “what SIZE bike should I get?”
My name is John Weirath and I’ve been a physical therapist and bike fitter for over 20 years. Now I make YouTube videos and other content to help cyclists find their own bike fit solutions.
So, just how hard is it to determine what size road bike you should get? Well, if you’re nearly perfectly average in all your body dimensions, you have great mobility, flexibility and no issues (numb hands, saddle discomfort, back pain, etc, etc) on the bike, then it might be pretty simple.
But if you’re like most of us and you violate one of those pre-requisites, figuring out what size road bike is correct can get tricky (and confusing) real fast.
Isn’t this what the bike shop is for? To find the right size? Yes, in an ideal situation, but in my experience, even if you visit a shop that has the best intentions, often their employees are under-educated about the ins and outs of correct sizing. And these days correct sizing is more difficult than ever with compact road geometry, proprietary parts, AND there being fewer sizes available — all of these factors lead to more pitfalls in buying the right size bike, not fewer as the cycling industry would have you believe. I have seen hundreds of cyclists in just the past few years that were led to the wrong size frame by their local bike shop — this is unfortunately very common.
This program makes it simple — it’ll take you step by step through a proven system for determining what geometry you should be looking for in your next ride. Each step is clearly explained in a comprehensive video, and what you end up is clear and unambiguous dimensional information you can easily use to find the bike that will fit you best — while easily ruling out the bikes that won’t work!
