BMX Racing

Anyone know of any good BMX racing brands? And does anyone know if the redline proline expert will fit a 5' 4" rider? on the redline website it says the recommended size is 4'10". and does any1 know if the freeagent eluder will fit a 5'4" rider? Thank you and any help would be appreciated.

If you were to get a Redline Proline get the pro. I'm 5' and can ride it comfortably. The Flight Pro XL is also a really nice bike. If I was to get any bike right now I would get an Intense Pro. They're cheaper than Proline's and still really nice bikes. The Felt Sector Pro X is also reallllly cool.

Very true.

This proves you can be 'young' and mature. Except you aren't really young, but you are. Naaaa mean?
