3 key components to check…
1. Change the cranks for longer ones, as their legs grow (this drops the saddle height down too) using the ’10% of their height’ rule +5/10mm, for the right length: CLICK HERE for HUP Cranks
2. Fit a longer stem to lengthen the bike (remember, if you have a Rotary seat post, turn the seat post offset towards the rear and slide back on its rails - as their torso grows) - make a decision on the new length based on the angles you are trying to achieve (usually 20-30mm longer than their current stem): CLICK HERE for HUP Stems
3. Wider handlebars are only needed as their shoulders broaden - often when they reach around 12yrs old, increasing the effective size of the bike too: CLICK HERE for HUP Handlebars
A Basic, simplified fit routine you need to regulary check (with correct length cranks fitted)…
STEP 1: Adjust saddle height (knee slightly bent, when cranks form extension of seat tube angle, HEAL on pedal)
STEP 2: Adjust their saddle position (slide on its rails) to get the centre of the knee over the pedal axles
STEP 3: Adjust the stem length for the desired back/arm angle (approx 90 degree angle from spine to upper arm)
It’s quite common to get as many as 4 years from the same frame using this method (especially on 37cm frames). For more help with general bike fit CLICK HERE. Discount codes valid for 30 days. You must email for your code before 30th September 2021. 1 code per person.
