That's pretty much my bike and I've been between 200-215 lbs for the entire time I've had it(near enough 2 and a half years). It's the best complete you can get in my opinion.

Hey,.... There might be one for sale here on Vital as well. Curt D was just talking of selling his & it's just down in Illinois. It's like absolutely new condition too.

Sunday Soundwave Special....

If that's too much for him/her the Eastern Shovelhead would be a good bike as well...

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

The L100 is the best bike available brand new for under $450. Yes it would be a good choice for someone getting into riding with a low budget.

If you want something nicer, be ready to spend $450+.

I did smiff grind and ride a custom I made from two low end completes and aftermarket pedals grips and seat. I’d recommend it but it’s a one of a kind custom sorry. Definitely get something made of metal, preferably something hard and shiny.

Why are you looking at 24's? What's the intended use?

24 bmx for park.

He is 6'1" and 220 lbs.

All I have seen so far is the sunday model c.

Which would be the strongest?

I really wouldn't recommend a 24 for anything other than massive dirt jumps or cruising. They don't spin very well, they suck for pulling into manuals and all of that extra torque when you land sideways means parts break a hell of a lot easier.

20" is the way to go but if you and/or he feels they just don't fit on a 20", then I'd look at the 22" bikes.

Agreed.

I wouldn't say there'll be a problem with a 20"; I'm 6'1/6'2 and 215lbs and fit perfectly on a very small setup.

I was literally going to say the same thing. But yeah, the sound wave is literally the strongest frame in BMX. I'm planning on making that my next frame myself.

I bought an off the shelf SE complete in 2011. Im 6'1" and at the time I bought the bike I weighed over 300lbs. I broke a crank arm and the wheels got loose. That's all. Frame is still in perfect condition.

Buy a full chromoly 21"+ TT Sunday frame
Buy full chromoly 9" bars
Make sure your wheels are double wall

Call it a day. He's not going to break a 20" frame weighing 220lbs.

This. Will be my first bmx no issues I spending big money on one but like to know how much i like and enjoy it before i drop 500 on a bike. Looking at the l100 as a beginner.. Is there anyparts i shoukd upgrade on it as i get more advanced.. At first will mostly just cruising and small pro hops nothing to fancy

First things to change would probably be the stem & pedals. Then... It's a first break, first replace.

If he is a beginner he doesn't need the strongest complete. Something to learn on and upgrade parts would be fine. The kink liberty is a great starter bike for a reasonable price.
