Okay so I'm a girl who's 5'2 and have no idea what kind of bike to get. I've been riding around on my brothers old bike and I learned bunny hop but not very high. It's pretty big and heavy which I think is making it harder to get higher. I read I should be riding a 19 inch frame but most frames are 20 inches or more. So do I get a kids bike? I plan to learn street and park tricks. I also don't know what are good bikes for beginners, that aren't too expensive (less then $300) any help would be appreciated because I don't know much about bmx but want to learn!

Look for an entry level bike with a smaller top tube size.

Something around 20" or 20.25" will be fine!

Sealed bearings are a plus, and in general the more chromoly in the frame, fork and bar, the stronger & lighter your bike will be.
