Grand Bi Haut De Gamme Penny farthing Vintage Velocipede

  • Due to its size please contact us if you want to get this item outside France
To measure if a Grand-Bi could fit your size:
You can look at the table located here to get an idea:

You should measure the length of your crotch with feet tightly flat, from the ground up to the crotch in cm.
And to see if the size 52 "will suit you, divide the size of the wheel (eg: 132cm) by 2, ie: 66cm
You add to this the length of the cranks present or that you want to put on it. (ex: 125mm for racing ones) (or 137, or 152mm if you want a "more normal" or customized Grand Bi.)

Examples: For a 48 inches: 60cm + 12.5cm (keeping the racing cranks) = 72.5cm minimum inside leg. (up to 70cm should pass)
For a 52 inches: 66cm + 12.5cm (keeping the racing cranks) = 78.5cm minimum inside leg. (up to 76cm should pass)
For a 54 inches: 68.5cm + 12.5cm (keeping the racing cranks) = 81cm minimum inside leg. (up to 79cm should pass)

Hope you understood the principle :).
