Since last spring, our daughter has been riding a 24″ youth road bicycle from Farrier Bicycle Works. While on paper the bike should have fit her, we noticed she was having difficulty during rides – specifically, the stand over the bike was too high, causing her significant pain when she banged into the top tube.
After some consideration, I replaced her road bike with a 24″ Speedster Junior from Scott. While technically the same size the bike’s geometry made for a significantly different fit.
The differences in the stand-over height can be seen in the photo below:
It’s important to note that there was nothing wrong with our daughter’s original bike – it just didn’t fit correctly. By selecting a bike that was the same size, but with a different geometry, we were able to give our daughter something on which she will feel more comfortable and confident.
