    just a few questions

    alright i'm lookin to get into the bike scene again. i've been out of it for a while so i'm a lil rusty lol. i'm just wondering what are some good bikes for some flatland and street riding. i'm looking for something light in weight but not something really expensive. i'm 6'1" so what size and stuff do i need? thanks for the help. and also what is some good links to find a bike.

    yeah look for 20.75 - 21" top tube, full chomoly frame, and as many sealed bearings as you can get for the price. Don't take any of that "Full chromoly main frame garbage" thats only the front triangle.

    Fit, Kink, WTP, DK, Stolen. Almost every company puts out a decent high end complete. Just watch the specs. You want a Full chromoly frame fork and bars. preferably a cassette rear wheel and as many sealed bearings as you can get for the money you are willing to spend.
