If anyone out there has this bike would you mind letting me know what size you'd recommend? I'm 5"9 and a half, with long legs, and newish to cycling so smaller might be better, but want handle bar high so maybe bigger better? The sizing charts seem a bit conflicting, I'm confused and obviously in these times, with bikes scarse, it's hard to go to a bike shop and try them both! If anyone has this bike and is taller than average please help!
I really would recommend getting somewhere that you can try a bike for size if at all possible. Liv pride themselves as women’s bikes with women’s geometry which can be fantastic if you are more petite, as compared to unisex/male models they offer shorter reach narrower handle bars and sometimes even shorter cranks (size dependent) I am tall and personally I tried a large liv bike and everything felt quite cramped for me (particularly the narrow handlebars) and found a giant medium in the same style a much better fit for my size and style of riding but everyone is different,
