I am 5'10 and about 180 pounds. and I would say I am only amateur at riding. but I am looking to get better. I have never really had a good bmx bike i have just had bikes from places like academy and target. witch from my experience are horrible to use. and they have all been 20 inch bikes. and i was just wondering what is a good size for me. Any help?
you should get a bike with a 20.5" TT to a 21" TT.
Try buying online at danscomp.com
The 2009 DK Raimei is on sale now and it is a fantastic bike.
I see you are in austin, So am I. Empire has some pretty nice bikes, but the deals to be had are online.

Thanks man I will check it out. maybe if i get good at all we could hit up some spots together
Yeah, most of the people I ride with have varying degrees of skill, And you would most definitely not stick out for being a beginner.
You don't go to UT by any chance?

No i am going to ACC right now. but i am actually transferring to UT next year. My girlfriend goes to UT so I am around there pretty often. do you go to UT?
Yep, I sure do. I know of 2 other people at UT that ride bmx as well. There really aren't too many people at UT serious about riding though.

Cool man. Well if you ever need help on a fixing a bike, just send me a PM and we can meet at Empire or something. I'm pretty good at putting them together as well.
