having a flatland specific frame will help ALOT. I used to ride flatland on a hoffman sugarbaby, but it wasnt something I was dedicated to... Otherwise it shouldnt keep you from progressing, as long as you practice practice practice....and remember, it can takes weeks of trying for an hour a day on a specific trick to get it down so don't get discouraged.....in flatland it is very easy to get down on yourself because progression is sooooo sllooowwww...

good luck

Small profile handlebars, front sprocket, and seat will help alot. You are not going fast doing flatland so you do not need a 42 or 44Tsprocket. Since the bike spins, and moves around alot, and you need to be able to float around, a DJ seat is unnecesary. Likewise with the bars. Also like PGX3 said practice, practice, practice.
