Its all personal preference... i ride 20 .5 and im 6' i like how compact it is and it feels more responsive... for street if your doing gaps i would go with something longer but ur question should be 20.75 or 20.5... so if you do gaps and that kind of stuff (or if you rode more trails) i would go with 20.75 but if your more of a tech rider (nose mannys, mannys,) that kind of thing (think garrett reynolds...) then u should probably go for 20.5 but 21 will be way big for you....


but like i said before it is ALL PERSONAL PREFERENCE

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves!

blah blah personal pref everyone knows the deal, id say you are between 20.75 and 21, im 5 10' maybe 11' and i ride a 21 now and just had a 20.75, if you want to feel like you can manhandle your bike do a .75. if you like flowy and bigger stuf do a 21

im sorta on a "short" 21, cuase i habe a 69 degree seatube angle, so it feels longer but controlls shorter, manybe look into one of those, like a villicus

I ride 20 and and am 5'7

I've ridden a 20.75

I now know I want a 20.5

At the end of the day, if your not restricted by trend and bike looks, you can always move your bars forward so they aren't inline with your fork to gain 1 to 2 inches! (any more than 2 inches will effect handling in a bad way prolly)

is that frame totally different in geo from your other one? Maybe you just fancied a new ride? I would just nudge the bars forward to get .125 of an inch

And yes, getting the longer stem reach is a good move for you tall people!

is that frame totally different in geo from your other one? Maybe you just fancied a new ride? I would just nudge the bars forward to get .125 of an inch

And yes, getting the longer stem reach is a good move for you tall people!

a longer stem whill affect on the handeling and is not so good for barspins.

I used to ride 21" TT exclusively, because I'm 6' 1". My new bike is a 20.9" TT with a 53mm reach stem and 25 degree offset forks, and it feels awesome. Spin tricks are SO easy.

Ride what feels comfortable and suits your riding style. My first frame was a 21", and I was only 5' 8" or so.

I'm 5' 10" and feel pretty comfortable on my 20.75" and running my bars straight up vertical. I'm running a TL stem right now, but I think a frontload will make all the difference as far as my knees being close to the bars, and possibly the length too. Like Warchol2 said, I like being able to manhandle my bike, but I have thought about picking up a 21" frame just to mess around with and see how I like it.

This thread is old man, but not it's not too much bigger but you will notice a different. And it will be a few ounces heavier no big deal man.

20.75 is a good midway. Up too you. I like having it bigger than 20.5 but still having decent control. I think 21's are for more room, I like being with my bike ; 20.75 for me.
