If you are a tall rider yourself, then I am sure this Charlie Crumlish bike check post will do you well.
It’s no secret that the majority of BMX riders tend to be of average or below-average height. However, that does not mean that tall riders cannot kill it on a BMX bike, too.
Charlie is a great example, and he is doing it for a very long time.
Note: Charlie is 6’4″ tall.
He even has a signature Tall Boy frame from S&M, which you can get your hands on as well. It comes in 21.25″ and 21.5″ top tube lengths.
Additionally, you can likewise get his 4-piece handlebar called FU-bar, also from S&M.

What you will notice when it comes to Charlie’s bike is how forward his handlebar is (similar to Dan Kruk). That’s what feels right to him due to his height.
Another specialty worth noting is that Charlie likes to paint his bike quite often. In other words, he will rarely go any considerable time riding his bike setup with the original paint job.

In this video bike check from midway through 2017 with Charlie Crumlish from S&M, we start with a few skatepark clips that are perfect examples of why his bike is set up the way it is.
Charlie runs through the different parts on his bike including his signature Tall Boy frame from S&M.
Charlie shares some thoughts on his fork offset and how he feels a 32mm offset helps the different fakie tricks he likes to do.
