Picking the perfect bicycle boils down to only three easy pieces of information:
- how tall you are
- how hilly the terrain is
- and your riding style (laid back cruising, sitting upright, or sporty and grinding it out)
Answering these three questions let's us pick a frame style, frame size, and number of gears respectively.

To get the correct frame geometry for your body you'll want to follow these rules of thumb, based on your height. If you're a cusp, size down for comfort:
If you're going to ride an Astor:
5'1" - 5'5" - Small
5-6" - 5'9" - Medium
5'10" - 6'1" - Large
To truly know if the bike will fit, you need to measure your inseam groin to floor. The Astor's top tube is at the following height - and you'll want to be at least a hair taller: 29.5" small, 30.5" medium, and 31.5" large.
If you're going to ride a Mayfair
5'5 - 6'2 - Large
Getting an optimal fit will require some tweaks to your seat and possibly the handlebar angle after you've assembled and ridden it a bit.
