Welcome to my What Size Bike Do I Need Blog!

October 26, 2011

Welcome to my what size bike do I need WordPress blog! I’d like to share some bike sizing information, along with other cycling tidbits, that I’ve found useful, and hopefully you will enjoy them too.

Maybe I’ll get around to doing some talk about how to measure a bike frame, maybe I’ll get a wild hair and whip up a bike size chart or bike frame size guide, but likely this will just be some random cycling ramblings of an over-worked and under-rested person with bikes on the brain.

Sound familiar? Then please bookmark this site or the rss feed and check back often or leave a comment to say hello. Tanks for stopping by and reading, sincerely,
