    help me pick a bmx.

    well heres my situation i bought myself a mongoose article for the bmx park . its heavy very unstable and agile doing jumps and cheap. now i heard dirt bmxs have longer frames for big dirt jumps thus making them more stable doing jumps is this true if so id be looking for a dirt jump bmx for the bmx park but wouldnt know what to get. im currently looking at a specialised p20 http://www.specialized.com/gb/gb/bc/...FPark%2FStreet but i know that theres better out there so what do you reccomend i get? it has to be a dirt bmx.

    A 'dirt jump bmx' won't have a longer top tube just because of what its meant for. Plain and simple, your bike doesn't fit you. How tall are you? Your height will determine how long a tt to get, if that option is available in whatever completes you want.

    Ftfy. Sorry for the grammar nazi moment, but grammar errors bug me. And those bikes are designed/built for racing, and would fold on him if he tried to ride any street/dirt on it.

    Stuff like this makes me laugh. I wish people would read up on what they were trying to do before posting. Like Street rider said the TT is based on your height and then preference. I knew a 6 ft plus dude who rode a 18.5" frame and some shorter people who 21". The length isn't going to make you go higher or do sweeter tricks. I'm 5'7'' and run a 20.5" and have complete control of what I want my bike to do. Honestly, it is more about you than your bike. When I first got into the bmx scene I thought it was all about the bike. If you have a study bike they you can do whatever. Lighter bikes can make things easier if you aren't "strong." Personally I think you need to practice what you are doing. Once you master that you can do anything on any type of bmx

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
