I am 5 foot 4 and i need a new frame, because mine has been snapped for a while, and i can get a very good deal on a new frame in this size, will it be too big?

Depends if you run a short stem and have the bars back enough it might work but thats just a theory i made up just now

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

WAY too big if you're just starting learn to ride.

If you like it, its good. Harry Main is like 6'4" and runs a 20.4". We can only recommend you a size, its up to you to decide what suits you best.

My friend Josh is that tall and rides a 21.25 and he looks like he is riding a limo. He handles it at the trails tho.

Which frame? I have a 20.75 broadcaster that's way small for me that I wanna get rid of, if that frame has good geo we could possibly trade?

Harry mains only 5'6 lol, and to the frame my friends 5'6 ish and he rides a 20.3 frame and says its comfortable but id still save up and stay on a 20.5 but then again this goes back to preference

TOO BIG! I'm 5'4" and run a 20.25" If i was you I'd stay with 20.5" or under. Check The frames page on our site. We recently updated it with a dropdown menu at the top so you can look up whatever size you may need.

All about what you're comfortable with man. A friend of mine came from racing so he's used to longer frames. He's about 5'6" and rides 21.3" United L40. I also know people who are 6" and ride 21" frames. Pick a frame you're comfortable on. Go try your friends' bikes and see what you like!

I feel like that would be a tad bit big for you lol

its all preference though... and if youre young theres a chance of growing into it.
