Hi Luca,

I would gladly receive indications of the right size of the new bike I would like to buy.


Bike model: GIANT PROPEL

Height: 178 CM

Crotch height: 85 CM

Arms length: -

Racing or amateur position: --


The correct size of the GIANT PROPEL racing bike is the M, even if it is at the upper limit for this size, but the ML would be just large.

Between the two sizes, therefore, the lower one is to be preferred, both because it falls within the optimal range for its measurements, and because it is the one that would require fewer adaptations.

Ultimately as it comes assembled by Giant, it is perfect for you, given that being just small, it won't force you into a stretched position, your bust will be slightly raised, and there won't be any problems for the saddle to move back.

Being his first racing bike, he won't have to make any changes, at least, after a handlebar stem longer than a centimeter.

But there shouldn't be this need either.

Overall then size M is great for her.

Beautiful racing bike.
