How do you size a fixie?

If you want to calculate the size for an urban bicycle or fixie you must multiply your crotch height by 0.65. Then you’ll have to multiply that number by 0.65 (although some experts also mention 0.64). Thus, if our legs are 80cm long, we shall get a size-52 model.

Similarly, you may ask, what size of fixie should I get?

Bike Size Guide – Fixie / Single Speed Bikes

Fixed Gear Single Speed Size Chart
Height Inside Leg Frame Size
5’3″ – 5’5″ 28″ – 30″ 50cm
5’5″ – 5’7″ 29″ – 31″ 52cm
5’7″ – 5’9″ 30″ – 32″ 54cm

Also, how is standover height calculated? The standover height is the distance from the top tube of the frame to the ground, measured from just in front of the seat. This is where you would be straddling the bike frame, ideally with your feet flat on the ground.

Consequently, is it hard to ride a fixie?

Riding a fixed-gear takes time to get used to. It’s also not for the out-of-shape, and if you have bad knees, riding fixed may make them worse. But Telemark skiing might hurt your knees, too. Telemark is also harder than alpine.

How is frame size measured on a bike?

Measuring Instructions

1. Identify the top of the seat tube, where the seat clamp holds the seat post.
2. Identify the center of the bottom bracket (it’s the axle that holds the crank arms together).
3. Measure the distance between the two points (C-T) – this is the length of the seat tube.
