Im getting back into bmx park riding. I just bought a 20" bike cuz that was all that was available to me, im 6'2" and the bike seems a little short. Is there any other sizes that are more suitable to me, or is that a good size for parks that im just going to have to get comfortable with?

What size / length is the top tube?

I would take a tape measure and check to be sure.
Measure from the center of the seat tube to the center of the head tube along the top tube. Most should be 20", 20.25", 20.5", 20.75" or 21".
The sizes also go smaller too. I'm 6' and have an 18.75" frame which I think fits better on me than my 20.5".
Maybe it will just take some time to get comfy on it.
Although I knew when I jumped on the 18.75, it was love at first ride.
