I’m 5, 3 and I was wondering if I can ride a 20.75 inch top tube bike? Is that a bad idea I mean I will grow into it but idk how long that will take.

Sure you can ride it. You can technically ride any size frame you want lol

But at 5'3", that's pretty damn big lol

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

How long have you been riding?

It'll feel huge and sluggish at 5'3

I mean, that'd probably be better, but still not super ideal...

20.75 at 5’ 3” you could do it but you would be stretched out. I am 6’ and road a 21.5 at one point I speak from experience. Standing up it was fine but sitting was a constant stretch and put some strain on my lower back. I love a 20.75 but seeing I can ride a 21, I didn’t think.5 would be a problem. I was wrong

That's pretty big for you. I'm 6' 2" and ride a 20.8. Here's a sizing chart.
