noob to the DJ/urban scene
im 6 foot 1 around 200 pounds and i was just wondering what whould be a good begginner bike for dj/urba riding. Im either looking for a good frame under 350 or a complete for under 600. Im willing to try and build one. i found a specialized p grom 21 inch for 550 is this a good deal?

I may be wrong, but I thought the P Grom was designed for small dudes. Yes there are some 24" wheel mtbmx's that are built for big riders....but I think with the "grom" they built a small frame.
