Sizing your Running Frame
When taking your measurements, it’s important to consider the posture and stance of the individual, and how that might change over the course of the day. For example, the leg muscles might stretch after a warm-up and therefore affect seat height. Similarly, if an individual finds it hard to fully extend or flex their knees measurements should be taken in their preferred stance. For some individuals, a larger frame with an offset drop-link gives more space for growth and adjustment. An assessment is always advisable.
