In the past S******** has offered what we call a Rider Fit Profile for $150 (refunded with the purchase of a frame or complete bicycle) that we would use to guarantee “accurate” fitting. The problem, even when it cost $150, was that customers would always try to measure themselves without any help and the measurements would always come out wrong.
Well, now that the Rider Fit Profile is free, the amount of shitty measurements coming in has skyrocketed. Go figure.
Here’s my new favorite:

Customer Name: J*******
Customer E-mail: K*********@yahoo.com
Body Measurements
Age & Gender: 36 year old Male
Weight: 165 Lbs.
Height: 5’9” (175cm)
Torso length: 57 Inches
True inseam: 24.5 Inches
Upper leg length: 24 Inches
Shoulder width: 24 Inches
Arm length: 25.5 Inches
Flexibility: Can place palms on floor
Shoe size: 8 US
Shoe brand: not specified

The photo you see above is what the computer suggested he ride given the measurements he gave us.

lol
