Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 20" - Learn what size is right for you here.

Designed for riders who are 4' 10" to 5' 6"

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.65” - Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a longer chain stay. It gives you a more stable and controlled feel.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75° - Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.8"

F: Stand over height: 9"

This is a medium/tall standover.

A medium stand over provides a good balance between responsiveness and control.

While a tall stand over allows you to pinch more of the seat for bars and t-bogs.

2021 Cult Access Price

The Access is just over $300. This makes it really affordable and easy for parents to buy. With the low price tag comes lower quality.

2021 Cult Access Conclusion

Now, I'd reccomend the 2021 Access to someone who is brand new to the sport. This person wants a bike that will help them progress to the mid-level. If you want a really colorful bike, you need something different because it only comes in two colors.
