trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

Bro, seriously, you'd feel so much better with a bigger one. I'm 5'6" and I rode a 20" and I was hittin my knees and it just felt too small. Then I switched to 20.5" and it was perfect. It does make a difference and you'll more than likely regret getting one that's too small.
