    Macneil deuce deuce

    I posted a thread a while ago about cruisers, but now im thinking about going straight to regular bmxs. I went to a local shop and they had the deuce deuce out and he said it would be good for a big rider such as myself (6'4") because the top tube is 22". Im wondering, cuz the top tube is a couple inches longer, if it would make it a more solid bike for a bigger rider, and would the hight that i would lose off the front really matter?

    I've toy'd with the idea of getting a 20" myself. But my cruiser is darn comfy. Though, I've never sat on a 22" TT.
    I play guitar in a country band, this is my page on the band website.

    I would rather get the Premium Harrington in 21.25" for a big frame...

    I dont know why, that Macneil doesnt appeal to me

    No, just get a 21". A 22" is most likely unecessary for you...

    I hope you watch your mother die in a fire for that country band comment.

    Also, my friend is 6'4, and he rides a 21" toptube just fine, the 22" is total overkill.

    I agree with what wtp said about you.

    But after you watch your mother die...

    Ive ridden a Duece Duece before and its huge. Like it just doesnt feel right, the top tube was like giinormous (sp?) and the back end felt like it took up the intire skatepark i was in. (And i like my wheel all the way back on my bike)
