these are the 2 bikes im looking at i do multiple brakeless styles so im getting a street bike
im 6 ft 1 with a long arm span and my current bike is a 20.5-20.75(not exactly sure havnt measured in a while) so length isnt a problem with me. this thread is directed more towards the older riders(impala, blakc ninja, scorch, kkmk plz help>.>) but all views are welcome. even street riders are welcome to help idc

ill answer with a question first, why does brakeless = street bike?

tall doesn't necessarily = longer either, im around the 6 foot area, and i found a 20.75, even with mid offset and mid reach stem, a 20.75 was just far too sluggish for anything front wheel.

I would look at something around the 20tt area, you still have heaps of room if you use a long/mid reach stem, and i found 20 to be a reall really nice feel for all around.

The riot would probably suit you better, its lighter and looks lower slung, which would help with whiplashes and such.
Pehaps:
