I’m 5’1 with an inseam of about 28.5, and am unsure if the 48cm would fit. In the general fit guidelines you don’t mention the 48 or 50cm flannimal. Generally, what height should a rider be to fit on the 48?
Thanks for asking, Tina. That info must have gotten lost in a recent website revision.
We recommend a 48cm for folks roughly 5’0″ to 5’2″.
You won’t have a ton of standover clearance with your 28.5″ inseam length on our 48cm: standover height measured at the center of the top tube is approximately 28″ with 650b wheels and a typical 42mm tire. With the bike on 700 x 40mm, standover height is approximately 29″. If you measured your inseam in bare feet, I suggest you remeasure in shoes to double check.
