Hello All,Posted 5 years ago
Help needed. I’m thinking of buying a canyon xc bike. I’m 5’8″ tall inside leg 29.5″. I’ve looked at the specks on their website and the XS bike has a standover height of 31.5″!!
Has anyone of my sort of size bought one of their bikes, what size did you buy, how much clearance was there.
They do seem very large fitting bikes, shame I really mant one.
I’ve just ordered a Nerve XC8.0 today (bargain of the century).
I checked their online size calculator thing and it kept saying I needed a large but I wasn’t convinced as I’m 6’4″ with a 35″ inside leg.
I know my sizing doesn’t really help you but my advice is to e-mail or call Cullen at Canyon UK and ask his advise.Posted 5 years ago
He replied to my questions within about 30mins and put my mind at rest (they recommend anyone over 6’2″ to get an XL).pstevensnzMember
I’m 5 ft 8 in and have a nerve xc. Their size calculator reccomended a M which I went for, but it does feel a little on the large size to me. Mostly a bit long in the top tube, stand over height is ok. I think I may have been better with a small – still a great bike tho!Posted 5 years ago
Thanks for all your help. I’ll ring canyon on Monday.I’ve just got back into m.biking and have an old Marin shoreline trail 15.5″ which fits me fine, at the time I was told to to have 4″ clearance. However as I’m 30″ inside leg ish is bothering me. Even the XS measures too big as per their website measurements!Posted 5 years ago
I’m not sure if there is a correct or standard way of measuring standover height but my large Nerve XC claims 32″ standover which by my reckoning with my 34″ inside leg is taken from the highest point of the top tube up by the headtube. In practice I have about 5″ or so of standover clearance.Posted 5 years ago
The important part as has been mentioned is top tube length. My large feels big, especially as my legs are long relative to my torso.
