Hi,

I've had a trials bike for a few years now and I've always found my trials bike seems more difficult to maneuver than my XC bike. It just occurred to me that the frame size may be unfitting for my height. How would you determine the right size frame for a rider? What are some of the things to look for when you're on the bike to know whether the frame fits you or not?

I cannot seem to find much information on this on the web, so any thoughts/insights would be appreciated. Thanks much.

Trials bikes, especially comp-style ones, are notoriously awkward and 'unbike-like'. That's normal. Unless you're freakishly tall or short, you'd be able to compensate a great deal with technique. I've seen 5'6" riders on long 26 comp bikes and 6'2" riders on old school short 20 bikes shred. Take a picture of yourself on your bike and post it here.
