if you're asking the question, you won't be hitting jumps big enough that it's going to matter.

S&M made some cruiser bars decades ago. They were about that small ^^. They were called, Gay Bars. Seriously.

Mid is the standard bottom bracket size on bmx bikes. as in, 99.9% of the bmx bikes are using mid bottom brackets. You can spend your hard earned money however you want but I think you'll be wasting your money if you purchase a custom frame at this time. ... more »

You know who would know the answer to your question?...... MIKE LAIRD. I'm assuming you're talking about the bottom bracket? He uses Mid sized BB's on his frames. that is an outer diameter that the bearings sit into. The 19 or 22 (or 24) that you're ... more »

cm is for road bikes. Fit on a road bike matters MUCH more than a bmx / dirt jump bike. I know guys that are 6'7" riding 20 inch wheels and guys 5'4" riding 29 inch wheels. Both feel at home on the bike because the frame fits them. You can adjust the

wheel size has NOTHING to do with riders height. FRAME size does. and I've got 12 years on you...

how old is old? you looking for suspension? Have you looked into 24 or 22 inch wheeled bikes? How much do you want to spend? etc..

Added reply in a thread Vitals Longest Manual Contest! 11/8/2017 3:38 PM

using time (seconds) to judge your distance isn't accurate at all. if you're going 5 mph or 30 mph and hold the front wheel off the ground for 30 seconds, one manual will be MUCH further.

I'm running about 60 gear inches on my 24. I thought it would be too hard to pedal because i have old shitty knees but it turns out that it's just fine.

Added reply in a thread What are the best tyres for dirt jumps? 10/25/2017 9:30 AM

S&M Mainlines all day long. Modern jumps don't require large knobby tires. Infact, if you showed up a bunch of times to our local public jumps with holly rollers or the like, someone would tell you to get different tires.

Added reply in a thread Using Spare Chain As Bike Lock? Idea 10/18/2017 12:15 PM

lock your bike with your chain and see how many twists it takes to break it. 1, 2, 3... bike gone. U-locks break easily enough with the 'twist the frame' method. A bicycle chain would be simpler.

Added reply in a thread Using Spare Chain As Bike Lock? Idea 10/18/2017 9:50 AM

may as well use a shoe lace. it would take SECONDS to break that chain by twisting the bike/chain.
