ok, im aware im prolly gonna get shitted on but oh well im prepared. anyway here goes. im 6 ft 4 usually around 285lbs... I here the (oh shit), anyway I just went thru a screwed up divorce not to mention getting laid out by a drunk driver 2 years ago, so I went on a depression eating binged, now im 350lbs.....no shit, but heres whats up, im back im happy and my son tears the shit outta the parks when he rides, and hes always asking me to get a bike and go with him... my question is,,, is there anything besides an exersize bike I should be on? I mean im from the 80s, I used to dirt jump and bmx all day, and I wanna get back into shape an think this will help along with a diet. I looked into big bikes I don't want any 20inch I need a big bmx. so far my only choices are the se big ripper which is a 29er and the saint 24 from stolen, I saw a video of a 26 from stolen but they haven't produced it yet, does anyone have suggestions? there was this place called thick bikes which custom made a bad ass frame but I called him and he stopped doing it, it was beefy as hell and looked liked a sunday frame on roids. I need that bmx look but beefed up, a 26incher is what im wanting, my height and weight are turning me off a 24 and I don't really want a 29, any suggestions? please help. I know2 itll take a miracle.

if you want a big and solid bike, get a NS Bikes, they make quality shit, my friend is riding a second hand 2009 suburban ns bikes frame and its holding up great, and he rides hard. check his website and choose what you like the most: http://www.ns-bikes.com/

This. Or the S&M ATF 22. Check out the link in my signature. And if you're looking to do a custom frame, look into Standard Byke Co. Don't fool yourself into thinking you need a 26" just because you are tall and heavy.

I'd look at a 26" DJ bike, from NS, Black Market, or Transition. Those fuckers are beefy and if you decide you don't want soft forks, there are a few rigid ones for mtb (Black Market Tech 9, Ns RNS, DMR Trailblade, ect..)

22 inch bike
feel of a 20 inch, stability and comfort of a 24 inch
get the S&M atf
maybe a bit pricey, but worth it

if i were you i'd go for a 24''. there is more variety of parts than 22'' bikes. for frames, forks, bars and rims check ns bikes, mutant, dartmoor, beddo and octane one, for all the parts left you can use bmx ones.

Sunday Model C - They Supposedly Feel/Ride Like A BMX - I have been told by people that I Very much Respect that, that is Crap haha! However they did say they are HELLA FUN!!!

Your next choice is an S&M 22" - The Holmes is built along the lines of a Trails Frame, The ATF is set up for more Street/Park Riding.. Which I think is Your best bet! It's basically a bigger version of the 20" ATF.. S&M offer all you'll need to get the 22" part of the Bike rolling. Then really You can build it up with "Normal" BMX Parts.

If you need help with the Build hit Me up via PM I'll be happy to help you out getting a Build planned out!!!

Get a 26" DJ. Like a Kona Shonky. You can flow parks and bowls too , with the added benefits of a DJ. They are burly as fuck ! I wouldn't ever break mine. There was a dude who has the same bike as me trying flip whips and bailing so hard and it held up fine for him.

go with a 22" if you want a bigger bike but not a bike that is long and awkward. If not go with the Sunday Wave C or Model C. The Sunday's ride nice if there set up right. The stock Model C bars are to low for me.

Sunday Model C or Specialized P bikes.

They are more of a DJ setup, but a tad bigger.

I looked into ns bikes, just didn't know anyone who had 1, ill look into them again thanks, I really wish I knew a custom frame builder, that frame from http//:www.thickbikes.com looks sick but he dosent build em anymore. so do u think that ns bike is beefier than the se pk ripper or a stolen?

so theres a guy on here from Norway... hes a huge Viking, said he weighs 400lbs, he wrote ona post he had a build that some1 made him an hes down 100lbs from dieting and riding. so I wrote him askin what frame he used, he said we the people 26er, the only thing was the chain kept jumping off when he peddled hard and stood up so Im not as big as him but im thinking . whatever frame I get ill need to know what stronger componants im gonna need so that wont happen to me.

i highly recommend you to get any NS bikes frame, i've never seen a snapped one. but if i were you i'd go with a 24'' instead of a 26'', 26'' seem pretty big for me, but it's your choice!

some ns bikes good completes: http://www.ns-bikes.com/metropolis-1,55,pl.htm http://www.ns-bikes.com/metropolis-2,56,pl.htm http://www.ns-bikes.com/metropolis-3,57,pl.htm
