Frame size chart for mountain bikes

Mountain Bike Size Chart

Measuring Your Leg Length/Inseam I

Take off your shoes. Stand against the wall. Place your feet apart. Put a book between your legs, with it's spine firmly up against your crotch. You should feel as if you are seated on a bicycle saddle. Have someone measure from the floor to the spine of the book.

Bike Safety - Cyclist Pre-ride Checklist


Bike Safety - Cyclist Pre-ride Checklist


Check Your Bicycle and Your Gear before Your Ride
A checklist is a good way to make sure you have what you need for a safe and enjoyable ride. These are items you should consider taking on a long bike ride.
Most emergency gear will fit easily in a special bag that attaches under your bicycle seat. These bags are sold at bike shops and come in a variety of sizes and styles.

Safety and Emergency Repair Checklist
  • Properly fitting helmet
  • Sunglasses or other eye protection
  • Pump (consider a pump frame that attaches to bike)
  • Patch kit or spare tube
  • Toolkit for basic repairs, including wrenches that fit your bicycle
  • Rain gear
  • Your driver's license or other ID, plus an emergency contact person and medical information
  • First aid kit
  • Reflectors and flashing rear safety light
  • Brightly-collared clothing to improve visibility
  • A few dollars for emergencies
Make sure you know how to repair a flat tire and practice at home before you need to do it on the road. Most bike shops offer classes on basic bike repair.

Comfort and Clothing Checklist
  • Padded gloves to reduce pressure and "road shock," which can cause numb or tingling fingers
  • Bike shoes with firm soles make pedalling more efficient.
  • Bike shorts with a padded lining eliminate seams and make cycling more comfortable.
  • Anatomic bike seat. Bicycle seats (saddles) come in a variety of shapes and sizes. To find the best one for you, try several types.
  • Jacket to block wind and rain.
  • Arm warmers, leg warmers, extra clothing as appropriate
  • Clothing that wicks moisture will keep you dry and comfortable.
  • Sunscreen
  • lip balm with sun protection
Many cyclists use clip less pedals that allow cycling shoes to lock into place. A simple twist of the foot releases the shoe from the pedal. Clipless pedals allow cyclists to pull up as well as push down on the pedals and create a much more efficient pedal stroke and faster speeds.

Other Essentials Checklist
  • Map or cue sheet or good directions
  • Energy foods, snacks or extra cash
  • Adequate water and water bottle cage or hydration pack


Pre-Ride Safety Inspection
Before each ride, perform a safety check of your bicycle. This only needs to take a minute or two, but will help prevent avoidable accidents.
  • Check the tires for proper inflation (marked on the side of the tire). Check the tire treads for excessive wear or other damage, such as embedded glass or other objects.
  • Check the brakes. Spin the wheels to check for rubbing and then apply the brakes to ensure they stop the bike smoothly and evenly. Check the brake pads for excessive wear.
  • Check the cables and housing to make sure there is no fraying or splitting.
  • Check the wheel quick release levers to ensure they are secure.
  • Check for any loose parts or other mechanical problems.
  • Do a slow-speed ride and inspect bicycle, brakes, and shifting before you leave your driveway.
  • Following these guidelines will go a long way to enjoying your bike rides and will often help you prevent unexpected incidents or a long walk home.
