Athlete Testimonials: What Bike Size do the Pros Ride?

Our 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 and ambassadors 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.

Height: 5ft 3in OR 160 cm

Inseam: 25in OR 63.5 cm

Bike Size: X-Small

Bikes I Ride: Obsess Advanced, Pique Advanced, Envie Advanced

Bike Fit Adjustments I Made

Other than changing my saddle out, I didn't need to change anything which was my first time EVER!

Why I Love My Bike

Because it is light and nimble and VERY responsive. It just feels like it’s a part of me rather than something I’m having to try and move around!

Height: 5ft 7in OR 170 cm

Inseam: 31.5in OR 80 cm

Bike Size: Medium

Bikes I Ride: Hail Advanced, Envie Advanced, Pique Advanced

Bike Fit Adjustments I Made

I adjusted a few things on the Hail to best fit my personal preferences. I run a shorter stem 35mm, bars are cut to 750mm, the cranks I run are 170mm, and I swapped to a larger 170mm fork.  The seat I run is stock, the Liv contact SL saddle. I like this flatter saddle to allow me to scoot forwards and back during climbs and flat ground pedaling.

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.

Leonie Picton

Professional Enduro Athlete

Height: 5ft 7in OR 170 cm

Inseam: 31.5in OR 80 cm

Bike Size: Medium

Bikes I Ride: Hail Advanced 0

Bike Fit Adjustments I Made

Longer dropper post, different saddle, and thicker grips. Last year I upgraded the rotor sizes but this year the bike came stock with 200 mm rotors in the front and 180 mm rotors in the rear, which is great! I also love that the Hail comes with 800 mm bars as well.

Why I Love My Bike

A bike is like your best friend. Bikes inspire you to be creative and adventurous. They teach you discipline and build strength (mentally and physically). They take you places far beyond what you thought possible. You experience the thrill of achieving goals and the disappointment of setbacks. My bike is my life.
