Stand-over clearance. How much do you have.

Postby nicklouse » Wed Apr 07, 2010 20:03 pm

Stand-over clearance.

Often mentioned but do you actually have any?

Sonic and I have differing views on this so I thought I would ask the forum for some infos.

Trying to keep it simple lets have some info.

this is all presuming that you have a correct sized 26" wheeled bike. (add any extra info needed.


bike type: HT or Fully

Travel: Front and Rear (if an HT leave rear out)

clearance: with both feet flat on the ground and with the nose of your saddle touching you body.

your height and inner leg measurements approx.

thanks muchly.

HT (NS - 17.5" - 160mm) - had about 3 to 4 inches. But the frame was smaller and more chuckable.

HT (GT Aggressor XCR - 20" - 130mm) - upto 1 inch. The smaller size was too short/compact for me. Never had any issues, it was a great bike to be honest!

HT (P7 - 19" - 140mm) - 1 to 2 inches but I wanted a bigger frame for a compromise between xc comfort and chuckability.

Oops, forgot to add...
I'm 6ft2 with quite a long reach. No idea what my leg length is though lol.
