Because of the limited adjustment possibilities, cycles were made in 8 sizes for men related to leg length and it was important to have the right size. Otherwise riding could be very uncomfortable.

Ladies frames came in three sizes, A, B and C but ladies legs were presumably unmentionable as leg length is not referred to. The A size was equivalent to the 22 inch diamond frame cycle with 24 inch wheels and 6 1/2 inch cranks.
