hello guys was riding my fixed gear bike the other day jumping off gutters then i thought maybe the stairs so i tried that i ended snapping the front of the frame and now i was looking for another alternative my brother gave me his bmx for free and i rode it to work jumping off gutters felt alright but jumping off stairs i puss d out anyone feel that way when riding a bmx or maybe its because i am too tall im 6.3 inch's and weigh 110 kilos pretty heavy but it does not stop me physically the bike is 20 size model
and i was thinking of maybe going up to a 22 inch frame

It's all about the feel of your parts. I'm 6', and ride a 21.25" TT, and my 20"bike feels great. I wouldn't mind trying a 22", but I've already built my bike up like a tank, so the 22" build will come later.

A tank it is. LoL

Stay with the 20" but just get a longer toptube, way more fun than a 22"

I used to ride my bike to work, I used to hit all sorts of shit on the way, like just cruising all the way to work and would try and get through my whole tricklist before I got to work. Was fun but I was knackard by the time I got there.

Use the car way too much nowadays.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

I probably will if I get a call back for a job, and I ride my bike to school every day and ride a shity mountain bike my dad got if its raining.

I ride to my work on my bike. I live in Holland, so it's part of our culture to ride a bike I guess......on rainy days it really sucks though....

I ride to work 3 days out of 5, but, on my Giant Escape, not my bmx. California hills are too unforgiving for a single speed bike over the 34 mile round trip.

I've ridden my bmx bike 15 miles before, but that was around Mission Bay where it's completely flat.

I'm kind of curious how far you guys are willing to commute on your bmx? If it's further than 5 miles, what is the terrain like? When I was young, my family lived in Illinois...I could have ridden across the whole state on my '77 Schwinn Scrambler. Here in Cali though...not so much.

Eh I wouldn't use my BMX as a way of transportation.
I do love flowing around the streets with earphones on when going to ride places.
I guess if you got it for free might as well use it.

I used to do that until last year when the subway and skytrain banned bicycles that were unfoldable.

I carry a shovel when I ride, so I can ride over to 4 year old threads and dig them up.
