or.

Do my wheel for free before i call in the descrimination act against your ass and have you fired.

I did it at college today, seriously if someone says that to you do them for it. People trip over curbs and sue(sp?) the council and get thousands..

that guy is an idiot or he just wants to sell you another bike. there are plenty of guys riding bmx bikes who are bigger than you. i would recommend a STRONG bike because someone your size is going to put a lot of stress on a bmx bike and you might end up breaking stuff more often as a result.

on the other hand, you sound like a big dude for your hieght. i am 5'8" and about 150 pounds. if that's not all muscle, ride your bike more!

I have seen a video of the big security guy on the fit team do a hop bar, and hes gotta be like 6 something 250 or something. It actually sounds like your pretty good for riding for only a month. It took me forever to learn 180s.

dont worry about it at all dude he was just tryin to sell you one of his bikes. there are guys WAYYYYY bigger then you that shred. size really isnt an issue. besides as you ride youll get more fit and probably lose weight anyway
