Is it even worth trying?

I was always fascinated by bmx bikes and all the tricks people would do, since i was like 8 y/o. I learned how to ride a bike when i was around 5 years old, I mostly had only mountain bikes, idk why i never got bmx maybe cuz i was to scared and they were very expensive in my country and time going on i forgot and passion went away. However like half a year ago i found Scotty Cranmer's youtube channel and been watching since.

So to get to my question finally, is it even worth it for me to start riding a bmx bike right now, im a big fella, 6'6 260 and 21 y/o. But i really like bmx life, just never got into it. Also watching Scotty's videos big boy is huge inspiration, im a little bigger than him, but watching him improve is amazing. My goal would be to start working out again lose bunch weight (half a year ago i lost 20lb)

Some of the best BMX's ever didn't get into BMX until their 20's! So if you have a dream you need to go for it, as otherwise when you're 40 you'll regret that you never tried.

Good luck man!

I'm 45 and still have fun railing a pump track, even 40yo beginners are commonplace

If I were 6'6 , I'd likely be looking at a 24 or 26" bike though
