Hey im about 5'9 and want to start riding but idk what sizes fit me best in such as: toptube frames and bar height. Also can anyone tell me what the pros and cons on big and small bars such as the hyrone bars and the odyseey lumberjack?

yea like above^^^ lumberjacks are considered small now, 8.5 i think is a happy meduim and small and big, and from ther you can either slam your stem, or throw some spacer in and get a topload

If you're just starting, don't worry about enough room to throw bars, or the "best" bars. Look into some of the Completes or Customs they carry on Veinbmx.com

Also, TT is all about preference, I'm 5'10, and ride a 21", but I have friends just as tall, who ride 20.5" and everything in between.
