I'm pretty new to biking, rode bmx back from childhood up to about age 16. Now at age 25 I bought bikes for the family for christmas this last year. With my stats at the time 6'3" and 300LBS I bought a 29" mt. Bike. After breakig it a couple times jumping curbs and stuff I decided I need to go a diffrent route. I picked up a 2007 Kona scrap and it has been a much better fit for my riding style. I can raise the setpost enough to use it for trails and lower it for mild Dj/Pump. I really like this bike, and ride it pretty much everyday, and it has helped me drop down to 250Lbs since Jan 1, however now I want to add a bike just for street/skatepark use. I feel if do this I can keep the gears on my scrap and have an aggresive trail bike and something to do longer rides on. then get anotherbike just for learning bigger jumps and urban. I just can't decide if I should get a BMX or a new school DJ style.
At my size I'm worried a BMX wont fit, but am equally worried bikes with DJ geometry will only be good for Dirt Jumps and not great for street/park riding. I am also intrigued by the Idea of learning to grind...but not a must.
Also considering a 24" bmx, but don't know of any that would be good for the riding I intend either. Open to any Ides as I'm having a real hard time deciding what direction to go. Thanks in advance....
