I've been riding a wethepeople complete since I started and I want to upgrade and build a new bike. I'm not sure what kind of setup to create though. I'm pretty big for bmx, I'm 6'3, and 200 lbs. I figure I should buy the longest frame possible and bars with at least 8" rise. Does this sound right?Just wondering if anybody can give me any tips? what is the best setup for street and park?


I have more skill in my little claw then you have in your entire carapice!!!!

it doesnt really matter about the other parts, but the frame and length of cranks are important

if you get a race bmx that is 24" the frame is big to you could change it to a park/street

a sunday frame is long and strong.. longer cranks would be good...and bigger bars (i ride 29" bars)
