i was with you til you started bashing the 20 inch top tube.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

It doesnt matter. Ride what works for you. If that is a 19 inch tt and you are 6 feet tall so be it. if its a 21 inch top tube and you are 5 foot 5, thats cool too. ride what works for YOU.

im in on this old thread.... im soo in!

when i was young and small i ran various tt's 20" 20.5" 20.75" 21" and non of them mattered until I actually got taller and was on a 20" and I had to chicago my bars out to feel comfy.

that was the point where i realized a 21" was completely necessary

I could see your height making a difference, but what about your reach? I am 5'11 and I have 20.5 top. It feels right.

Since it is back..

I am 6 feet tall and run a 20.5. Have been on two different frames for about 5-6 years. By everyone's standards, that is too small for me. But I like it as is. It is easy enough to throw around and do tricks with, and big enough for me to have the room I need.


I have seen dudes who are 6 foot 6 riding 20.5 comfortably to them. Also on the flip side, I have seen dudes who are like 5 foot 4 riding a 21. It's mostly about comfort. There are certain things that work, yes, BUT it is a generalization, and too many people forget that. What a person needs to do is ride the frame and see what feels good to them, since a large portion of frame size in BMX is personal preference, because technically (by society's thoughts) all BMX bikes are too small for people over 5 feet tall.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

TT length makes a little bit of difference, but its the combo of TT, Bar and headset height, BB height, CS length that determines where your centre of gravity is in relation to the axles and steerer tube.

I got a 22" wheel bike (that's rims not toptube) and that just takes the piss out of all this tiny adjustments to geom - the 22's make the bike handle exactly how you wanted a BMX to handle like and twice as fkn fast.

Obviously you don't understand what I meant by "comfort" on the BMX bike. If you aren't comfortable on it, basically you cannot get used to it, it has you too stretched out or squished in, you shouldn't be riding it. BUT my whole point was that anyone can be comfortable on something different that what "everyone" thinks they should ride.

If you read my old post about a guy I know that is 6 foot 6 and COMFY on a 20.5 you would understand. Same goes with another guy I know who is 5 foot 4 and is comfy on a 21 inch top tube. If YOU are comfy, ride it. If not, change it.

By the way, if you want a comfy bike, beach cruisers are NOT the way to go. Try a recumbent trike.


Jackass.

its all down to personal preference. Im 5 10 and unitl recently I had a 20.5, thing felt soo small, had to basicallyy run chicago bars. Now im rocking a 21.25 and it feels amazing, Im way more comfortable on it, and the only thing it has affected negatively is spins
