Hi, I'm new/uneducated/not updated to the scene, but anyway I'm looking into getting a new bike.

I'm a pretty hefty guy wheighing in at a solid 90kg on my 189cm, so I need a bike that can take a serious beating.

I'm not a complete noob I know the basics of bmx, what I am a noob on is the shitloads of brands and whats good for what etc.

I'm mainly gonna ride street, park and dirt now and then.

As most people want it should be light too.

The pricetag can be high, not unneccesary or silly high tho.

Thank you smile
Sry for wall of text.

Tl;dr
dude needs new bombproof bike and has no clue what to get. High pricetag ok, but not silly high.

P.s. Parts, or a complete list of parts, not a premade.

I recommend a Sunday Soundwave frame in 21" toptube.
Eclat Tibia Cranks
Madera Mast Stem
Odyssey r32 forks
Bone Deth Deadman bars in 9"
Gsport wheels, Ribcage to Marmoset, Ribcage to Ratchet in the rear.
Animal Tires
KMC Kool Chain


You can pick the rest of the parts because they arent really parts that matter about your weight but more about your preference, as in, the seat, Sprocket, Pedals, Grips, Etc.

But those are the strongest parts you can get and i am sure they could hold up to you!

This bike will take care of you, it's pretty much a custom bike but slightly discounted

Considering most people are 70-80kg, 90kg is heavy. Also I'm a lifter and my goal is like 95-100kg. Soooo...

Spokes: are you going to lace the wheels yourself, or someone else? If someone else is doing it, they'll figure it out for you. 3 lace is the standard. If you are going to lace them yourself, there are spoke calculators. Google them.

Stem: 51mm will provide the most room. But if you want less get a shorter one.

If you're ordering from Kunstform?! get the Eclat Diesel chain instead. It has a halflink installed so you can dial in your rear end.

Ok, just wondered what spokes to buy, I'm propably not lacing myself.

Yeah, well, frame and stem from Dan's comp and the rest from Kunstform, if I buy at all that would be, it's a lot if money, but I'd rather go solid from the start han getting something that would brake :p

But do you think Kunstform could lace the wheels before sending the stuff? Lacing is the only thing I'm not comfortable with xd

They should be able to lace the wheels up before sending to you, but there may be an extra charge for it.
