Can't be adjusted. If you want adjustable ones you need to upgrade them.

Based on your inside leg measurement we would recommend the 17" Paradox so that you would have a comfortable standover height, however we would still encourage you to try the bike in store for comfort first.

Go for the 22".
I'm 6'2" and 19 stone.
The fit is better than the 20" and feels nice and strong.
But beware I brought this bike and within 7 days the rear wheel bearings failed and the rear gear cassette is damaged.

go for the Carrera the build/parts quality of the Apollo Paradox is not the greatest. The rear wheel bearings failed on my Paradox in the first 7 days, now the gear cassette is damaged as well. I was looking to buy the Carrera but they only stock one frame size.

Both are popular and well rated bikes but in terms of spec and the brand we would recommend the Carrera Titan.
