Bigger.

As you can tell, sizing is a matter of interpretation and no bike should be purchased prior to trying it on for size. Seat tube length is only part of the equation and can be modified simply enough with a longer seatpost. Your torso, arm length and comfortable or desired riding position also play into it. Sloped tubing and other factors in modern design toss the old seat tube measurement out as a standard anymore.

Your rear end, feet and reach determine the fit. The rest just connects the dots.

IM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT SIZE MY FRAME IS....IS THE SIZE ON THE FRAME SOMEWHERE?


Frame size is generally measured from the center of the crank axle to the top of the top tube or seat tube, but things have become complicated. More recent bikes have top tubes that are slanted downward and longer seat posts, so that a 21" frame today may be equivalent to a 23" frame that is much older as far as fit is concerned.

How to get a giant trinity a1 tt seatpost?


Bicycle seat posts are pretty standard items and you could just use a generic replacement if you want as long as you get the right size diameter.

If you still have at least part of the old seat post, then just use some precision calipers to measure the outside diameter of the seat post and that will tell you what size replacement you need to get.

This needs to be a pretty acurate measurement, within a tenth of a millimeter, so eyeballing it with a ruler just won't do it.

Otherwise, if you are missing the old seat post entirely, then you can try just measuring the inner diameter of the bike frame where the seat post slides into your bike tube and you should get the same measurement.

The easiest way by far is just to bring the bike into your local bike shop and get them to measure your seat post size with a special seat tube measuring tool they have. Then you can just order a new seat post based on that size from wherever you want, either right at the store or online.


Good luck and take care.

Joe.

How bike size is measured?


So what does "different frame size" actually mean? And what does that frame size number, 13" or 25" or whatever, mean? It's fairly simple.

The frame size number comes from the length of the seat tube. The seat tube is that nearly vertical tube of the three big tubes that make up the "main triangle" of the bike frame. The seat tube has the bike's saddle attached at the top, and has the pedals and crank arms attached at the bottom. A short seat tube will make the pedals closer to the saddle; a long seat tube will make the pedals further away. The frame size number is the length from the center of the crank arm spindle (the axle that holds the two crank arms together) up to the top of the seat tube (where the saddle and seatpost are attached). On some bikes this is measured in inches, on others in centimeters.

But that's not the only dimension that changes for different frame sizes. As bicycle frames get taller, they also get longer. That means the distance from the saddle to the handlebars gets longer. This makes sense, since tall people don't just have longer legs than short people. They usually also have longer arms, a longer torso, and so on. So the bike frame also needs to get longer in every direction for a taller rider, not just longer from pedal to saddle. The top tube gets longer, which pushes the handlebars further away from the saddle. The head tube (the frame part that the fork attaches to) gets taller, so the handlebars will be higher up. All of these dimensions and more are fine tuned in every frame size, so the right size frame for a person's height fits well everywhere, not just in the saddle.
