Today we’ll cover choosing the right bike and dirt bike size chart for the new rider that wants to start getting out there and try dirt biking for the first time or has already been doing it. And just isn’t quite sure if he’s got the right-sized bike for himself.
Here at work every day many people asking that what’s the right size a bike for themselves their child, their nieces, nephews. They just want to get into dirt biking, just don’t know which bike is right for them, at the experience level that they’re currently standing.
So, what we like to do today, cover the differences between series of bikes, we are starting from the smallest to the beginner rider. Junior riders all the way up to the largest for the adult riders.
Guides for junior riders
So, we’ll start with the junior riders, the CRF 50 or most 50 cc dirt bikes out there are automatic four speed bikes. This allows for the rider to really learn to control the bike the acceleration and deceleration and full bike handling. Before adding the complexity of a clutch to the bike itself, 2 of the bikes the 50 and the little 110 for slightly older kids. That want to learn to start dirt biking, don’t have the experience riding, a manual shifting dirt bike but really want to get out there on two wheels these bikes offer that option right there.
You’ve got no clutch to it it’s just like oh of the gas shift keep going it really likes that young rider to learn full bike control before adding the gear shifting and that to the bike. Once he’s comfortable on two wheels, what they like to do after that is they jump up into the slightly larger bikes a little bit taller you’ve got the one tens all the way up to the two 30s for the adults.
There you get your full dirtbike the only thing that changes from size up going up as the physical size of the dirt bike and the power. As the rider grows and once they’re at the level of the full control of the bike with the gearing of the clutch, really the sky’s the limit after that Elva dirt bikes past the smaller bikes all have the clutch system in it.
As I said as you grow the micros with you and then after for the trail bike serially going to the 230 size 250s that’s where your adult riders and they get the fun of the bikes. So, choose the right bike from dirt bike size chart. Once they’re out of the beginner phase and into the clutch and this is the actual physical size the most important part is to make sure that you have two feet on the ground.
Choosing the right bike size for your size
So when choosing the right size bike for yourself, you want to make sure you have two feet contacting the ground. But, you’re not flat-footed on both feet, you want one-third of the front part of your foot touching the ground that way you’ve got enough of your foot on the ground. So, that you’re not cramping up your toes being on your tippy-toes and you have enough control so that if something does happen with the bike, you can keep control of it.
Motocross riders will tend to go with a little bit taller of a suspension because they’re doing the whole taking jumps in that the average rider. You do not need more than one-third of the foot and again flat-footed you might have a little too much weight on the bike. And bring the suspension on too much we’ve hit that big rock or bump you might not enough suspension there to you know to get you over comfortably. Other than that as long as you reach all the controls and you feel comfortable on the bike that’s the main part is safe and being a comfortable bike that you choose.
So, today we cover just the general size just keep in mind the number one thing is choosing the right size bike with the right amount of power. Don’t go for the biggest monstrous bike out there just because you think it’s going to look cool it’s your life that’s in the balance here. Make sure you’ve got the right size for the right sized rider from our dirt bike size chart and remember to stay safe.
