Size And Geometry
The Cortland’s wide, swept-back bars are designed to place the rider in a comfortable, upright position that’s easy on the back and provides great visibility of cars and other cyclists around you.
The chart below offers a guide for which Cortland is right for you. While height is a good indicator of size, we also recommend measuring your inseam from the floor up, while wearing shoes, and comparing that to the “Standover” height in the chart. Simply 1″ of space between your inseam and the crossbar will make for a comfortable fit. If you’re still not sure, head down to a local dealer to give it a try, or give us a call at 415-834-5860.
