Built this to be as blacked out as possible. Kept the silver rim for better breaking. I'd like to upgrade the F&F at some point but I ride maybe twice a week seeings that I'm old and 40plus are spent working.

I worked part time at a shop years ago which is where the Premium came from.... Sat unused in my basement as I kept riding my old T1 Barcode, but sadly it was laid to rest after many years of fun. Not much from that would work with this seeings that it was from before Mid-bb era.

Liking that. I do love a chrome rim on a black bike.

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

After a a few months on it, I feel like it's still not long enough. I'm 6' tall... Is 21 too short?

It's the perfect size for you, if we're going based off sizing charts. I'm nearly 5'11" and I ride a 21" and I love it

It looks super good. Chrome rims for brakes are the best .

Personal preference really. I'm 6' with shoes on and my frame is 21.15, I'd rather go up to 21.25 than back down to 21".
It depends what you use it for. Your bars angled like that will make things feel weird. And bmx's are supposed to be small. When I commute on my bike it feels like the bars should be taller, and I should have a longer frame. But when I'm actually riding it feels perfect.

The bikes looking dialled btw!

Try raising your seat bro. I'm 6'3" and ride a 21.50 but if your 6 and your seat is there you're gunna be in a world of pain and feel cramped as hell... Also straighten your bars so they are flush with your forks and the bike will feel better.
