I'm 6'1 and about 210 and I was wondering if you can be too big for bmx. I've seen guys way bigger than myself and they were cruising around with no problem. I just wanted some input.

There probably is but you're definitely not, there are 6' 4"+ riders around. I'm 6' and I'm absolutely fine.

There are plenty of big guys who ride. I'm 6'0, 265. Just buy your parts for strength, don't get the lightest ones you can find. The thing is, being over 200 and trying to be a weight weenie won't really work out too well.

As noted , Robbie from Cult is pretty big compared to most lanky bikers. He still rides fine.

If you can physically ride the bike, your not too big. Technology has came quite a way.

Shouldn't be an issue. I am 6 ft tall and at my heaviest 254 and I was doing just fine, trucks, whips, tucks the occasional 540 too.
