Bike Size too big?

Hello I am new to bmx freestyle and zi have a question for you guys. For my first bike i am going to get the Dk Six Pack because it was recommended to me and other people for their first bike. I saw that the Six Pack was a 20.5'' bike. Will that be too big because i am only 5' 3'' and weigh 100lbs. Also the bike is 33lbs. Will this be too heavy? Or will i eventually get used to it and be able to do bunny hops a good about of height?

I am sorry that i am so newbie. It is my first time getting a bmx bike and i wanted to make sure everything is perfect. I am not sure if i will be able to find a LBS that sells Dk's. I already looked at like 3 shops and none of them had it. They only had haro. I might be able to find a shop though so i can try out the 20.5'' bike. Anyways, i would like everyone's opinion on the size and the weight of the bike.

Thankyou to all of you that respond.

Don't worry about it. A Six pack is a perfect beginners bike, it will last you quite a while
