## How do I know if my mountain bike is too big?

If your back, shoulders, or wrists ache after a ride, that could be a sign that your bicycle frame is too big. But don’t head straight for a smaller frame—especially if you don’t have those symptoms. A larger frame works better for some riding styles. A bigger frame allows for looser handling, which some people prefer.
