what size bike should I buy?

I am 5'10 and about 180 pounds. and I would say I am only amateur at riding. but I am looking to get better. I have never really had a good bmx bike i have just had bikes from places like academy and target. witch from my experience are horrible to use. and they have all been 20 inch bikes. and i was just wondering what is a good size for me. Any help?

you should get a bike with a 20.5" TT to a 21" TT.
Try buying online at danscomp.com
The 2009 DK Raimei is on sale now and it is a fantastic bike.

Yeah, most of the people I ride with have varying degrees of skill, And you would most definitely not stick out for being a beginner.

You don't go to UT by any chance?

Yep, I sure do. I know of 2 other people at UT that ride bmx as well. There really aren't too many people at UT serious about riding though.

Cool man. Well if you ever need help on a fixing a bike, just send me a PM and we can meet at Empire or something. I'm pretty good at putting them together as well.
