i know this is so stupid because there is guyes bigger, older and taller than me on here running 20.5 but i was wondering if my frame is getting too small for me. im mabey 5' 3" and i keep banging my knees on my stem and i dont know if this is due to frame size or just bad technique but whenever i bunnyhop it seems like i naturally lean back and land WAY back on my rear tyre and its often sketchy when i land. sorry for wasting your time but just wondering.

Are your bars even with your fork?

If you have long legs then thats the problem. If your 12-16 and youll keep growung buy a 21 in, if your pretty much done then get a 20.75

People need to stop asking for a BMX video game. If they did, we would all get it, play it for ten minutes and just go ride. You guys seem to forget that we aren't lazy like most skaters. If we had a game, it would just make us all want to go shred gnar.

i may be riding over my bars too much...i have really long legs though.. no when i bike i dont even mean to hit my stem its not hard just a little knock so probably in a few months or a year if im still hitting it ill buy a cheap new frame on here or creigslist.
