What Size Frame???????? post #1
I'm 6'. Only been riding about 6 months (this time). I'm 38 and used to ride about 20 years ago but it was very different back then. Anyway, i'm now riding down my local park in Leeds, UK. I started with a Haro 540, which is fine but as i'm progressing i want something better, lighter and above all, something that feels the right size. The 540 has a TT of 20.5" but it feels tiny. Will bmx always feel tiny? I will continue to ride parks but i will be on the trails this summer, so what size frame would you recomend. I cant see myself doing much street. Also, if you have a frame / bike in mind, please let me know. I want one bike to do it all. I will want pegs.

Many Thanks

Steve

Get something with a 21 inch top tube. I'm 6ft and 31 yrs old and ride a backtrail(haro) but this summer I might get a new frame. I know what you mean about being cramped on a bmx. Try messing around with your bar position and maybe a longer reach stem. Really the only time my bike is cramped is when I'm sitting, so it not a big deal at all. I might get a layback seat post to help a little. Old school is now in session!

Dude, are you sure your name is not Trimix? That sounds EXACTLY like my story, from the age you are, when you quit, to the bike you were riding. I also started about 9 months ago, am 38, and my first bike was a Haro 540.

Go 21" no the top tube man.
