What is the difference?

Bike Size vs Bike Fit

A bike fit involves customizing different parts of the bike to suit your specific body proportions and needs. It ensures optimal comfort and performance by adjusting components like saddle height, stem length, and handlebar position to accommodate your unique physique and riding style. This process is akin to tailoring a shirt to achieve the perfect fit for your body.

On the other hand, bike size refers to the dimensions of the bike frame, similar to how shirts come in different sizes. It's like choosing a shirt size based on your body measurements before tailoring it to fit perfectly.
