BMX for tall and heavy guy

I'm thinking of starting BMX, cos my new MTB frame is far too large. I'm thinking of spending 150, possibly 200. Problem is I'm 6"3 and almost 15 stone so I'm looking for something pretty dmn robust. Cheerz for any help.

I'm 6'4" / 220 lbs and ride an Alliant 24" XL Billet

Alliantbicycles.com

I met a guy recently who rides a Gack 26", while it's not a popular bike (but it is a popular company) he advised Gack had the tubing et al to build a few more on demand

but i'm a little confused; are you looking for a frame to ride BMX? or a BMX frame to ride MTB?

I'm looking for a BMX frame, I need something fairly cheap cos I can't afford a whole new MTb right now, but I want something more maneuvrable than my XC MTB so that I can still dirtjump or do light street stuff.

more important then which frame is what materials the frame is made of. as long as you get a frame thats made of 4130 chromoly it should hold up. for your height i'd recommend a top tube of 21 inches. those two factors should help you decide which bike is for you. or at least narrow down the field of choices
