As the title says, I'm a big guy looking for a bike. I will mostly be riding around town, local park (concrete bowls), and maybe some indoor ramps. Nothing major. I'm 6'1" and about 290lbs. My legs are actually a little short for my height (30 inch inseam). I have a longer torso. Should I even be looking at bike with 20" wheels, or should I go with a 24" or 26"? Any and all suggestions are welcome.

at your height you can ride any bike you want. If you want a 20" then that would be fine. Unless you plan on doing a lot of tricks and stuff a 24" inch might be better for around town (meaning more comfortable).

Any suggestions for a good 24"?
