    Tall guy 6'1 , 210 lbs, what size bike size do you recommend? Want to do tricks :)

    I'm about to buy the Motobecane Track

    but I need to know what size you guys recommend?

    I'm 6'1 , 210lbs, and I would like to do tricks on the bike.. What do you recommend?

    Here is their sizing chart:

    Sizes are 51cm - 61cm for this bike, for the "A" specification.

    Thanks again.

    I'm 6-1, 200, 34" inseam...

    My 59cm Surly Steamroller seems perfect to me.

    Trix are for kids.

    thanks for the input, looks like I will need a special beefy frame to do tricks with and entry level frames and such will cost me about $500+ for the entire package...

    So I think I'll get a BMX or maaaybe a mountain bike, thanks!
