Are you comfortable on your bike? If so, where's the problem? If not, change it.

I feel too tall but at the end of the day It doesnt matter as long as you are able to accomplish what you want on it.

People that judge and dont ride will think you look too big on any bmx since it is considered a "kids bike" by most. Mountain bikes and road bikes are for adults... People that do ride and judge are shallow and perhaps arent truly riding for joy and trying to turn it into a fashion show or a peer pressure situation.

That being said, unless you get a shin reduction, you will most likely look too big on any 20" bmx. If it bothers you enough you might look into 22" or 24" bmx's.

Bmx's are supposed to be small
Watch Brian castillo videos on YouTube. He looks too big for his bike but was one of the best in his prime

Get a wood planer and take off an inch off the bottom of your feet , should shorten you down a bit and save some weight while your at it

Literally everyone who rode mid school looked too big for their bike. Small bars, baggy pants, baggy t-shirts, etc. Doyle used to look like he was riding a princess bike.

BMX is not about fashion, it's about style.

Man I'm 6'0 and I've had a few people tell me I look too big so I basically tell them to fuck off cause it's my hobby and I enjoy it

Tbh I'm not sure if I've ever seen a rider that wasn't a child and didn't look at least a bit too big for their bike.

Don't go through life thinking you look stupid to other people. Most of the people that think you look dumb doing something are usually insecure about themselves. Don't let them bring you down and do your fucking thing; and people will love you for being you.
