How do you measure the size of a mountain bike frame?

Measuring Instructions
  1. Identify the top of the seat tube, where the seat clamp holds the seat post.
  2. Identify the center of the bottom bracket (it's the axle that holds the crank arms together).
  3. Measure the distance between the two points (C-T) - this is the length of the seat tube.
  • How is head angle measured?

    TT: Top Tube: Measured from the frame size point horizontally to the steering tube axis. STA: Seat Tube Angle: The angle of the line passing through the bottom bracket and frame size point relative to the horizontal. HTA: Head Tube Angle: The angle of the steering axis relative to horizontal.
  • What is head angle on a mountain bike?

    The head angle is the angle from horizontal, to the angle that your fork sits at. Generally on a mountain bike, it will be anywhere from 62 degrees (slack) to 73 degrees (steep). Cross country bikes have steeper head angles, whilst downhill bikes have slacker head angles.
  • How do you calculate rake and trail?

    Raise the bike to an upright position, using a tape measure, hold the tape straight down from the front axle to the floor. Put a mark on the floor at that point. Then place the tape parallel to the steering neck, following the angle of the steering neck all the way up to the floor. Put a mark here also.
