Hi all, I'm looking to get back on a BMX after about 20 years as my sons has just started and I'm bored of watching!
Only problem is im now 6ft 4 and 15 stone, so I have no idea where to start.
Any advice on what's a good bike to play about with in the local parks would be greatly appreciated, ideally no more than £350.

Thanks

To reiterate, get that bike if money is there for it.

Just to add, I tried to edit it but for some reason it didn’t work! You can also get it from The Source for the same price, so grab it from there if you’re going to get one! Support a BMX shop!

GT does a 21.25 that has a more street geo. The Conway complete. 21.25, 75.5 degree HT, 13.1 rear end. Worth checking out if the Harti is too mellow.

It's £500 here. It's £412 for you cause they've taken the VAT off for you.

This is a good place to start. If you are too tall for this you might want to look at some different sports than bmx... You might want some 10+ inch bars to go along with this setup.
