This is purely meant as a guide. People come in all shapes and sizes; some people have quite short legs and a long torso and others long legs and a short torso and they could be the same height. titanium bike frame manufacturer make frames in different sizes because we all have different size legs. The key element is the inside leg and the cyclist ought to be able to stand astride the bicycle with at least 2-5 cm clearance over the top tube. This should be achievable with the cyclist’s feet flat on the floor, not on tip toe. If you are planning to buy a mountain bike, there should be a 5-10 centimetre clearance above the top tube. This is to allow for the nature of mountain biking – the extra space is for the occasional need to dismount suddenly from the bike.
 
Titanium bike frame strength
