if when u used to ride you were decent id suggest you pick up a midd end complete which is about $400 or so

if you were really good when u used to ride then id just go for a custom complete but remember its gonna run you about 12-1500 to get good parts but the thing is the bike will last you forever

my advice to you is to just read the forum and pick up on the new things out there since u have a background in bmx i doubt ur gonna have much catching up but in the past few years things have changed a bit but nothing too too drastic

if u got ne questions ask em here and if u think its stupid u can send me a private msg and i can try to help you out if i can cuz some people on here tend to be mean if its not what they think is a good question.

Well, then if you have the money buy a custom bike. It will last forever.

I have a wtp four seasons frame, and I love it.
And I just wear whatever shoes on sale, so sorry, can't help you there.

Any ideas?

There's no best size gearing. Ratios aside, small gearing is good for weight reduction, it's harder to bend a smaller sprocket (less leverage), and it allows stuff like rear right peg crooked grinds, but at the same time it puts more stress on your chain/driver teeth, more of the load of sprocket tricks are distributed over fewer sprocket teeth, and it's harder to do sprocket tricks due to the sprocket being higher into the gap between the wheels. It's preference basically.
