Steps for sizing and ordering your frame.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SIZING THE FRAME
It’s critical to properly measure the rider to obtain a correctly sized frame that will guarantee comfort, performance and efficiency in riding; therefore, measures must be recorded with utmost care, even repeating the same measurement.
Below are some basic instructions (refer to figures below):
The rider should be standing in an upright position, his back and shoulders in contact with a wall, without shoes and with feet parallel, slightly apart. The measurement needs to be taken with an appropriate ruler-angle.
MEASURING THE INSEAM
The rider should be standing in an upright position, his back and shoulders in contact with a wall, wearing bib-shorts, without shoes and with feet parallel, slightly apart. The measurement needs to be taken with an appropriate ruler-angle, as high as possible.
MEASURING THE ARM
In the same position as above, the rider extends the arm horizontally, without lifting the shoulders off the wall, while holding a cylinder the same diameter of the handlebar. Measure the distance between the wall and the center of the tube diameter.
MEASURING THE SHANK
In the same previous position, make sure that the tibia is vertical; measure the distance between the floor and a bar flatted on the knees of the subject at the upper edge of the kneecaps.
MEASURING THE THIGH
The rider should be seated on a stool so that the tibia is kept vertical and his/her femur horizontal. Place a bar (or ruler) on the kneecap and measure the distance between the wall and the bar.
MEASURING THE TRUNK
The rider needs to be sitting on the same stool, high enough to keep the legs at a 90° position. His or her back should be upright, so that the pelvis and the back can be in contact with a vertical wall, with his/her shoulders in a natural position. Measure the distance between the stool level and the external edge of the clavicle on top of the shoulder.
**These measurements can be taken with the Art.160 BioSize.
