Best Bike Sizes For Women


Hey, guys, Dustin here, CEO of sixthreezero. Today, I'm here with our lovely model, Alana. And today, we're gonna talk a little bit about the best bike sizes for women. There's a lot that goes into choosing the right bike size, especially your height, your body shape, arm length, leg length, things like that. It can sometimes be challenging to find the exact bike that's right for you. Now, the good thing about sixthreezero bikes is, our bikes are generally, made to be able to be adjusted for a varying height range. I would say most of our bikes can suit women 5 feet to about 5'11", depending on how you adjust the seat or the handlebars. Any women taller or shorter than that really, are going to need to explore either a larger bike or a shorter bike.

All of the sixthreezero bikes for women have four customer adjustment points. This isn't found on all bikes and it makes sixthreezero bikes very unique for a woman. The handlebars can tilt and raise and lower, the seat can tilt and raise and lower, making it easily adjustable for a woman's body. This adjusting capability makes it a suitable bike for a 5 foot woman up to a 6'2" woman.

Let me show you. Right here we have the Evryjourney 26" Women's. Alana is actually 5'1". We're gonna have her get on the bike, and we're gonna show you how she fits this bike. Now, Alana and I spoke before this video, and she said, "I ride a 26" bike." Now, at her height, it can really depend on if you're comfortable on a 26" or not, depending on arm length and leg length, also. You're gonna see Alana hop on.

Now, we have the seat all the way down. And go ahead and put your right foot down. Now, you can see, she's actually in a great riding position. Zoom in on those toes, right there. Nice. You can see, she's up on the pad of her toes, which is exactly what you want. Now, any lower might be too low. Any higher would be too high. You can see, she needs the seat all the way down. Somebody who's 5 foot, they could still ride the 26", as well. However, they're gonna be a little bit more on their tippy toes. If you have shorter legs, I would definitely recommend a 24" if you're 5 feet.

The EVRYjourney is actually a forward pedaling bicycle for women, what that means is the pedals are actually shifted forward 6" from where they typically are on a bicycle. This allows the seat to be lower to the ground while still providing ample leg extension for the rider when pedaling. With the forward pedaling design bike, riders 5'2" and above can get their feet flat on the ground when stopped. But still get the ample leg extension when riding. Now riders 5' to 5'2" won't be able to get their feet exactly flat on the ground with this setup but they will still have a comfortable safe ride. That's the benefit of the forward pedaling design for shorter women. It lowers the seat to the ground and makes it possible for them to ride a full size 26" bike.

Now, if you're 5 feet and say, you have average leg length or average arm length, 26" should be great for you. You can see, everything is perfect for her. Back's upright, the leg is great, arms bent and relaxed, and she's ready to ride. Now, hop off this one, Alana, and I'm gonna bring in the 24". Now, it's not to say that Alana couldn't ride a 24", or to say that some women may not be better suited for a 24", but it's a little bit of personal preference.

You can see on this one, the seat is higher. She's actually now, about in the same foot position on the 24" as she was on the 26", because of the seat height. This is gonna give her a little bit more flexibility, in terms of, she could lower the seat a little bit more. It's gonna give her a wider variance of adjustment potential. You can also see, this bike fits her pretty well. Again, it's really personal preference. The women that are 5 feet, 5'1" range, it's a personal preference between a 24" or a 26". And then also, if you have shorter arms or shorter legs, that's gonna depend, too. Shorter arms or shorter legs, if you're 5 foot or 5'1", I'd recommend a 24". If you believe your legs are average length, 26" is a great bike.

It can be difficult to find the perfect bicycle for a woman's body, especially if you are closer to 5' tall. Bikes are not designed with short women in mind. The EVRYjourney actually has a unique frame that can accommodate both tall and short women. For the 5' rider it most likely comes down to your inseam to find out if you will fit a full size bike for women. Some 5' tall women have a longer inseam than some 5'3" or 5'2" riders. It really depends on your unique body, but the great thing about the EVRYjourney is that it can be custom adjusted to a wide range of heights.

Alanna is a 5'1" woman and she fits on the EVRYjourney 26" perfectly. By adjusting both the seat and the handlebars we found the perfect fit for Alanna. Alanna's gonna take off and go for a ride, here. Remember, check out our website. You can enter your dimensions in our body fit tool.
