Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Size Small frames have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders typically don't have the same issues.
Make it your own
Customise your bike with fenders, racks, bottle cages and more to make it your own.
Rack & mudguard ready
Built-in mounts make it easy to add racks and mudguards for added versatility.
Shock-absorbing fork allows the front wheel to travel up and down over bumps while the handlebars stay steady, for a comfortable, controlled ride.
Massive tyre clearance
Accommodates 700x45c tyres with mudguards, or a 29"x2.1" MTB tyre without mudguards.
DuoTrap S compatible
DuoTrap S (sold separately) integrates a Bluetooth®/ANT+ sensor into the frame. Log routes and track fitness progress on your computer or smart phone with no external sensor. Works with all major ANT+ wireless players, including Bontrager, Garmin, PowerTap, and SRM.
Allows you to lock out the suspension fork for efficient riding on smooth terrain.

Sizing & Tech
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
