Yeah, it seems availability of parts will be your main hindrance. However, if you shop used (maybe thru the "for sale" area here) you could still build something up.

Added reply in a thread Why does almost everybody want his bike as light as possible? 2/22/2021 1:49 PM

There's a happy medium between light and strong and that is also affected by one's pocketbook. Light is nice but not at the expense of strength. & while titanium parts are strong, there's a valid argument about their ability to have catastrophic ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is my bike worth upgrading? 1/5/2021 1:49 PM

I wouldn't dump any real money into it other than maintenance and consumables (tires, pads, cables, chain, grips). Just make sure it's safe and rides well. Ride it until it dies or you find you really should upgrade (you bend a fork, crack something ... more »

Added reply in a thread Advice on BMX frame 1/5/2021 1:43 PM

I apologize if I missed some detail in my reply as I have limited time at the moment. For starters, yeah, a 20.75tt frame is too big for your son's height.... in general. It would probably be fine for you, size-wise. If you are looking to actually ride ... more »

Added reply in a thread Maybe a tricky question about frame sizes 1/5/2021 1:33 PM

Yeah, like said, OVERALL frame geometry will make a bigger difference in feel that the small difference in TT length. You can get used to riding nearly anything if you ride it long enough. The key is to find a geo that feels perfect for you.

Added reply in a thread Mongoose BMX 10/22/2020 7:41 AM

I disagree. Mongoose made bulletproof shit back in the day. The original Mongoose framesets set the bar before there really was a bar. Where they lost out was not maintaining their status as others jumped in, including Haro, Hutch, GT, etc...; When they ... more »

For the money, the Flybikes Electron is overrated. This is a much better bike and it's cheaper: https://us.sourcebmx.com/products/kink-whip-xl-bmx-bike-2020?loc=us&lang=en¤cy=usd

Added reply in a thread the worst bmxers 7/23/2020 10:12 AM

I suck, so the likelihood of any particular area being better than another, for me is probably a moot point. On the plus side, riding around looking for a great street spot makes it look like I can ride well but we just haven't found a spot!

Added reply in a thread Sunday primer 2013 7/22/2020 6:44 AM

Well, it sorta depends. I think that it would be fine for you as a beginner bike at your weight, even with it being primarily hi-tens. That year Primer came in 3 different tt sizes (20", 20.5", & 21") and that might play into your decision. The 20.5" ... more »
