Do you race or ride freestyle? I'm only asking because in freestyle some taller riders(Dave Fremuith) like to use smaller top tubes because of the benefits for technical tricks. If you race, then that isn't a factor.

get a regular 20.75 who cares if u feel crunched up, u have to stand on them the whole way anyway, when u sit its just for plain cruising around, get used to it

21' is probably the best bet and if that is still to small you can different steam lengths and handlbars to fix that porblem i like smaller top tubes because they spin easier during 180's and stuff

most people will find that they enjoy riding a lot more if they dont have to get their knee caps raised every night.

I no what its like cause im 6'2 and i have a 21 in frame and it work great 4 me. i would go 4 a standerd size bmx bike and make sure u get a 21 in to 22.25in frame and 185mm crank arms and it should work good.


PS go 2 danscomp.com cause they got a bunch of selections of frames and bike parts

Glad I found this post, I'm just over 6ft & was wondering the same thing. Decided to go back to BMX as my moutainbike just doesn't do it for me anymore. This BMX stuff sure has changed since I last rode one in the late 80's I have a lot of catching up to do. :D
