    Using dirt frame for flatland

    Hey guys, I'm getting an s-works dirt bmx frame for my first bmx bike and now am beginning to worry that all it will be good for is dirt jumping.

    I'd like to do tricks and flatland but am worried that the bike will be too big. It has 21.5" Top Tube Length.

    Am I SOL or is flatland still possilbe? It's light as crap by the way so I'm hoping that will help.

    Try it and see

    Do whatever tricks you are interested in..don't let your particular bike limit what you try...true, some of the flatland specific bikes are unbeatable if you are some kind of freak like martii kuoppa, but remember, people used to nail flatland tricks on whatever bike was available, I can hit a funky chicken or steamroller on my old schwinn predator.......keep riding whatever you decide!
    and speaking of flatland I suggest bmxstunts.com, they have awesome how-to videos you can stream for free.
