30 Day Test Ride

All the convenience of buying online, without the risk
When you buy a new bike at full RRP from rutlandcycling.com, you can now benefit from the added reassurance of our Rutland 30-day test ride. Once your new bike arrives, you can ride it as your own for 30 days, and we're confident you'll love it! However, if it's not right for you, we'll exchange it for another model. (There's a nominal charge of £10 for us to collect your bike - just make sure you keep the box your bike arrived in.)

On which bikes is the 30-day test ride available?
The Rutland 30-day test ride is available on all full price, non-discounted bikes available for home delivery on rutlandcycling.com. It is not available on discounted or special offer bikes, click and collect bikes, bikes bought on finance, bikes bought through Cyclescheme, or bikes bought in store. This offer is only available on bikes delivered to mainland UK addresses.

How does the test ride work?
Your 30-day test ride starts from the date your bike is delivered. You must notify us by email within 30 calendar days of delivery that you intend to return the bike within this scheme. This offer applies to all bikes purchased on or after 14th August 2014. To ensure you remain eligible, we would ask that you adopt a 'fair usage' attitude during the test ride period, and make sure there is no damage to the bike outside of the minimal wear you would expect from a bike ridden for 30 days or a few rides. Please note that any damage to the bike, including damage from incorrect assembly, will invalidate the test ride.

How many times can I use the 30-day test ride?
We will allow up to two exchanges within this scheme.

Bike Sizing Help

Found the perfect bike but puzzled by complex sizing? We're here to help with the following guide. All you need is your height in feet & inches (1" = 2.54cm, 12" = 1') & your inside leg measurement in inches & we'll help you pick the right size.

Bike geometry - The essential knowledge

Geometries vary based on intended use & manufacturer preferences, most of the figures define the ride & handling characteristics of the bike. The main figures you need to consider when choosing a size are:

  • Seat tube length/frame size
  • Top tube length
  • Standover height

Specialist use bikes such as downhill, dirt jump, BMX & 4X are sized to be smaller in proportion to the rider & often come in short, medium or long sizes.

How find the correct frame size

Manufacturer recommendations are based on your height with an assumed "standard" inside leg. If your inside leg is outside of the assumed range, you may be required to adjust the size of frame accordingly. Standover clearance is essential to prevent injury during a fast dismount. You should allow at least 1"-2" of clearance, for full suspension bikes this figure should be slightly more. To work out the stand over clearance, just subtract the standover measurement (found on the details tab of product descriptions or on the manufacturer's website) from your inside leg measurement. If there is not enough clearance, consider going down a size.

Tips & tricks for getting the perfect fit

If you find yourself sitting between sizes or have recently purchased a slightly wrong sized bike, there are a few tricks to help tweak the fit of the bike. You can try some of the following ideas:

  • Moving the saddle on its rails
  • Fitting a longer/shorter stem
  • Changing handlebar position

Information & help

This guide is intended as a general sizing guide. Bike sizes vary by manufacturer, so for the most accurate information please visit the manufacturer's website. If you still require additional help, contact us & we'll endeavour to help.
