A Perfect Ride Begins with a Perfect Fit.
The most common question we get is "what size bike should I buy?" Nothing can detract more from maximizing your fun than a bike that doesn't fit exactly right. Let's face it, we all come in different shapes and sizes. Haro Fit Tips helps guide you through the sizing question and helps you decide what's best for you by providing some of the basics you'll need in making that decision.
We base our published size on a simplified "T-Shirt" size, along with a suggested rider height range that accompanies that size. We also offer a bike's Seat Tube length, measured in inches. Different styles of bikes will measure differently, but fit the same rider. A "Medium" sized Haro may have a different frame look and measurement, based on their intended uses, but will all fit the same size rider.
Different Bikes for Different Bodies.
Once you've identified the bike you're interested in, the sizing section on the bikes product page will give the bike's sizing, as well as a suggested rider height range. It is possible that you will be able to fit on two sizes of a bike, this is where your body's build makes a difference. Use the geometry chart below the sizing chart to compare stand over height with your inseam, to make sure you clear with the proper amount of space. Next, use the top tube length and reach to determine which size is more ideal for your body shape. Longer limbs generally mean choosing the larger frame size.
1. Select your model
2. Find your Height
3. Note the Bike size associated with your height range.
If you can ride two sizes, drill down on both Stand over and Top Tube length / Reach in Geometry in order to fine tune your selection to your body type or riding preference.
