Athlete Testimonials: What Bike Size do the Pros Ride?

Our Liv Racing athletes ride Liv bikes in competition, during training, and for fun. It’s their feedback after rounds of prototypes and testing that inspires the final fit adjustments to make the best bikes for female bodies. While putting Liv bikes through the paces, our athletes have the opportunity to dial in their fit and make sure they are on the right size bike. Because, when it comes down to it, it's not just your height that plays a role in what size bike you will choose. Every rider has her own unique anatomy, riding style, and personal preferences. So, we've asked Liv athletes to share their information to help you make a more informed decision when choosing the bike size you will ride.

Still, nothing compares to jumping on a bike and taking it for a test ride before your purchase. That's why we recommend visiting your local bike shop or trying a bike at a Liv bike demo event near you.  After any bike purchase, a professional fit is always highly recommended.

Bike Size: Medium (Road), Large (MTB)

Bikes I Ride: Hail Advanced, Intrigue Advanced, Langma Advanced Pro

Bike Fit Adjustments I Made

I adjusted a few things on my mountain bikes to best fit my personal preferences. I run a 50 mm stem, cut my bars down to 750 mm, and I have gone with a longer dropper post. My road bike I keep completely stock.

Why I Love My Bike

I love my bikes for the adventure and thrills they take me on. I love the confidence and speed it inspires in me. The Hail is a mini DH bike that can pedal so there is no track out of its depth and can make you feel very secure and confident as well as push your riding beyond what you would expect.

Inseam: 28 in (71 cm)

Bike Size: Small (MTB), Extra Small (CX + Road)

Bikes I Ride: Pique Advanced Pro 29, Brava, Langma Advanced Pro, Obsess Advanced

Bike Fit Adjustments I Made

I always personalize fit. I run 170 mm cranks on all my bikes, 400-420 mm bars on CX bikes with short reach and shallow drop, 710 mm flat bar on XC bikes, -25° 80 mm stem on XC bikes (I like an aggressive position), 380 mm bar on my Langma with 80 mm stem. I always run my front end as low as possible on all my bikes. I obviously come from an XC race background, so this affects my fit preferences... efficiency.

Why I Love My Bike

Basically, once I have everything set up the way I like it, the bikes always feels like they're made for me. They all fit and handle intuitively. There are no compromises and it's evident they are designed with purpose. I'm always confident I'm going to love my new Liv before I even ride it.

Serena Bishop Gordon

Professional XC MTB and CX Athlete

Height: 5 ft 5 in (165 cm)

Inseam: 29 in (73.6 cm)

Bike Size: Small

Bikes I Ride: Pique Advanced Pro 29, Brava, Langma Advanced Pro, Hail Advanced

Bike Fit Adjustments I Made

Depending on the bike, I adjust my stem length and bar width. For road and cyclocross, I run 42 cm wide bars; for MTB I use 720 mm wide bars.

Why I Love My Bike

Because: FIT! Most comfortable bikes I have ever ridden. When you ride a bike that fits, you forget about the bike, it is just an extension of your body, working with you to move you forward.
