Unless you have really long limbs, that's probably a bit too big.

I was on vacation in the LA area not too long ago. Took my bike with. I noticed so many young kids (14-17) riding the most flashy fixed geared bikes. I wasn't aware it was still a trend to get deep v's and color coordinate everything. And they never even seemed to ride them, they would put the on the front of buses, or walk them down the sidewalk. Even when they rode, everyone rode on the sidewalk.

I got lots of weird looks when I was riding the streets.

Also, fuck freestyle bikes.
Also, fuck suicide brakes.


youre a fucking faggot, get the fuck off this site, youve already humilitated yourself enough. log off. you were probably getting weird looks cuz youre a midget with harry potter tattoos

i'm like 5'9 so like a 56-58cm?

naw man you probably would be good with a 52-54

I bought my first bike from a friend. It was used. Buying a complete will be 95% of the time cheaper. However, if you have the patience, you can build your bike piece by piece for cheap, if you constantly look through ebay and craigslist. I find that swap meets are great places to find deals.
