Big lad which bike...
I have not ridden BMX in literally 16 years or so. Very exited to get back in the seat.
But, I am 6' 4" and 200 pounds, a big lad. When I went to had a look at some BMX's in the local store I was shocked at the small size. I
So what bike? I want to be able to cycle to work on it and mainly do flatland/street type stuff otherwise. At my size should go for cruiser class 24" wheels?
Budget is also a restraint. I am prepared to spend up to 400 Euro.
I have been thinking of the Haro BackTrail 24 (I can get it for 320) and maybe upgrading the brakes and some odds and ends.
Will the increased top tube length and wheel size make flatland extremely difficult? Or will my size and strength be able to overcome this.
Cheer from Netherlands!
enter 26" BMX on Google.com
(I got Texas Cruzer, others...(no, didn't buy one, but saw the result on the search engine)
I'm 6'0" so I guess I will look through these myself)
just get something with a 21" TT. you wont be able to ride flatland and street on a 24" very well at all.
Hey, you should check out some top tube lengths of 21 inches or greater. I know a lot of people that ride 21'' BMX bikes that are your size. I'm 6'2'' , 200 lbs. and I ride a 20.5 Hoffman Condor.
What type of riding are looking to do ?
I just got back into riding after about 10 years out of it. I picked up a DK Cleveland with a 20.5" toptube. I am 6'7 and 240+. It does everything i need it to, even tho my neighbors think it looks funny.
