) i need something that can hold me any suggestions would be great thanks
i'm 6'1" / 195.
i think you might have more fun and ride better on a 24". i'm not saying this because i have a bias--i'm just going by what i've observed. i've noticed a lot of guys who are older/taller/bigger/getting-back-into-it/whatever end up having a better time on bigger wheels.
the bike is more stable, roll over bumps easier, therefore you maintain speed/momentum. not to mention they actually fit a tall person better. less hunching over.
here, i'm riding a Liquid Feedback 24". anyone who says you can't do tricks or ride park on 24" wheels simply hasn't tried it.
this is my friend Buddy riding a Volume Sledgehammer 26". so yeah, you can ride 26"s to jump too.
