I have been riding bmx on and off for about 4/5 years, anyway I'm really going to give it a go this time and be dedicated. I have found a bike that's perfect for me. Only problem is that as I'm only 5'7 the recommended size bmx for me is a "20.5" and the smallest size they have is "20.65"

Will it make a big difference if I get it ?

And if I get it and further down the line it's too big can I get a smaller frame ?

Here is the bike:

I'm 5'8. I rode 20.75 for a long time then switched to a 20.5. My face is still here and all my limbs are still attached. I've not shit any blood yet either so.. I'm guessing you'll be fine.

between 20.5 and 20.65 there's not enough difference to make you killyourself from regret. It's basically nothing, if anything might feel 'better' for you. It all depends on how you ride and what you like. Go for it.

20.65 will be fine. I'm 5'9" and my 20.5 feels too small

5.0" - 5.5" = 20.5" TT

5.5" - 5.10" = 20.75" TT

6"+ = 21" and higher.
