    Sizing for a Goblin

    Hi Guys,

    I am ready to pull the trigger on a goblin but I need a little assistance. I measured my inseam between 34-36". Would this constitute a 22" bike? Sorry for the wide range but I could not get a consistent measurement. If it helps, I am also 6'4". (I may or may not have short legs haha)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmmmmm....

    I'm 5'9" with 32 inseam.

    I ride 17-18".

    22" sounded big for your inseam, but if you are 6'4".....

    Call Airborne tomorrow. They'll get you set up.

    2 inches is a big variance. Be certain you've got an exact measurement before you call or email. It is best if you get a helper to measure inseam.

    Are the height and inseam measurements taken with or without shoes?

    Thank you!

    Without and it should be a cycling inseam not a pant inseam.

    - FAQ

    From the Airborne FAQ:

    "QUESTION: How do I know what size to order?

    ANSWER:

    If you are an experienced rider and already know what size Airborne you need, that's great! But if you don't, you'll want to call us to discuss fit at 800-888-BIKE. Before calling us, you'll need to take several measurements of your own body. Bike sizes are based on a person's height and body frame dimensions - not on their weight. You'll want to know your height, inseam, torso length and arm length. Be sure to remove your shoes prior to taking these measurements. Also, we recommend that you get a helper as it is nearly impossible to measure accurately by yourself



    Measuring Your Height

    If you don't already know your height, measure yourself while standing on a flat surface with your back against a wall. Feet should be spaced 6-8" apart.

    Measuring Your Inseam

    The most important measurement when sizing a bike is your inseam length. Don't base your inseam simply on your jeans size. The more precise, the better.
    •Stand with your back against a wall and spread your feet 6-8" apart.
    •Place a book between your legs and up against the wall, spine up; raise it until snug against your crotch (this mimics your bike seat).
    •Have another person measure from the top of the book (spine) down to the floor.

    Measuring Your Torso
    •Repeat the first three steps for measuring your inseam.
    •Measure from the spine of the book (the top) to the small "V" in your throat just above your sternum, in inches.

    Measuring Your Arms
    •Measure from the pointy end of your collarbone to roughly the center of the web of skin between your thumb and forefinger."

    Thanks, folks. I clearly should have read the introductory paragraph more closely ;-)
