Hey guys,

I recently broke my frame and I am about to buy a new one but I have a few questions.

1. Do I need to buy a new chain?

2. I am 6'1. Is a 21 frame good enough for me or should I go with a 21.15 or a bigger frame?

1. Probably not but be ready to buy one lol
2. Whatever you were riding get that size again


It’s all bmx

Btw I was riding a 20.6 frame and I would occasionally hit my bars and that was annoying so that's part of the reason why I want a frame with a bigger TT.

I'm 6'3 and ride a 2tt Fiend garret v2 with 53mm stem and love it. Before that I rode 21.25 frames with 48-50mm stems.

Depends how different the chain stays are. You might need a new chain, or you might need to remove links.

I'm 6' and ride 21.125, just street, could never go shorter and am very tempted to go 21.25 on my next frame (that's with a 50mm reach stem). But, it's personal preference. I'd recommend 21 at least though

Your style of riding will depend on what would be more suited too. A guy I know is a 6' 2" and rides 20.6, he only really does tech street, and looks silly on a bike that small with 9.something bars, high stem and about 20mm stack. I think bike set up can determine your style too. If it's too nimble you'll feel uncomfortable doing anything big or fast and concentrate on nibbly stuff more. I personally like a fairly stable bike
