Doing a Mountain Bike Fitting In helping customers find the right frame size most shops that sell bikes do a good job. Double checking it one can usually do that by taking a peek at the manufacturer’s website or catalogue. There is usually a range for every frame size.

By sitting on the bike with someone holding on to them, one get a good idea of what fits them. Some bike shops offer fitting s at a cost but one can do it for themselves too.
