Always wondered how do the gear ratio on a BMX compare to a mountain bike as far as inches forward per crank revolution go? Never had a BMX. I was always a tall very skinny lad and being on a BMX just made me look like a stick insect! I know now I would have been rubbish at it as well as I lack the 'fast twitch' muscle fibres that allow sprinting. The above bike looks a cracker to my untrained eye though!

Depends if you're on about racing or enjoyment ;)

I much prefer riding a BMX, I'm not short so I raise the seat post up enough and also have a layback.

I've seen 6'4" tall guy riding a BMX (standing up tho)

Hello mate - thought I recognised the face behind the visor, not long until CIN now - you trekking along?

What's the history of Robinson? Are they a US company?
