Am I too big to ride a BMX?
I'm 6' 215 lbs.
There's any empty lot next to my house that I could build some jumps in, so I was thinking about getting a BMX bike to play around with.
I bike in the nude
Pro rider,Robbie Morales...
In other words,no. Look at his videos on youtube. He's big compared to skinny riders like me but the guy is a beast.
We win all charity rides
Dud Rob O is huge. And he's good. he can keep up with so many of the smaller, skinnier riders.
You're smaller than a couple of guys who were doing pretty good in racing, in the 90s. Gary Ellis (The Lumberjack) and Charles Townsend (Amtrack) were both over six feet tall, and if I remember right, both were fairly burly powerhouses.

I'm 6'1" and have about 25 lbs on you, so no you are not too big.
None of us big guys are every gonna dominate tech bmx but whatever.
6' 3" 260 and I race Cruiser from time to time. My pal Brian Green (former east coast Expert) still races at about 3 bills on 20" and Cruiser. You may want to consider a pump track and throw a couple jumps in for fun. Just an idea.
