I'm currently riding a RedLine 26'' frame for street. I was looking into building a BMX bike for street as well.
Does anyone suggest a good frame for a person with a larger build ? I'm 6'1'' 190lbs.

Well I'm 6' 200Lbs, and I ride a 20.5" Volume Mexican. It feels pretty good. My roommate is 6'4" and rides a 21" Volume compton. If you want something that is tough and for a good price I would go volume, or if you want to splurg go for the FBM night Train. If you need anything I can hook you up with some good deals. www.redgeneralbikes.com (http://www.redgeneralbikes.com) . Email me if you want a firstname.lastname@example.org

I am 6'4" and weigh about the same. I ride a Pro Concept. It is an aluminum racing bike, but I put many freestyle/street components on it and it works FLAWLESSLY. I recommend the PC XXXL. It has a 22" Top Tube for taller dudes. It is a racing bike, but it is a VERY thick and strong aluminum for the harder street/trick riding. Hope this helps. They are on eBay every once in a blue moon and there is 1 on there now if you are interested. Take care! Email me at shLndLgg@aol.com with questions.

Do not buy an aluminum frame for anything but racing.
A good all around frame is Fit Foster. It has 990 mounts and it's fairly light for a trails/street frame. I think it has a 21.25" TT as well
