my advice is to get something like a yz85 large wheel or a yz 125 as when pit bikes hit a bit of dirt there is hardly any grip and you just get stuck i should no its happened to me plenty of times.just invest in a second hand scrambler and you'll be alot happier hope that helps

You should check out the new X4. I don't know how big you are, but the fifty based bikes are a little cramped for me, even though that's what I currently have. I don't really care for the X3, it just looks kinda odd. Pipes are hard to find to work with the frame also. If you want a fifty based bike, check out the X2, or X2R.

I have a x2 and love it but I understand the X4's are based on the 110's and plan to move up myself in the future.

I hit my knees on the bars a lot in the corners. It hurts after a while.

Yeah I'm about 6'1" myself, But I still love my x2, other than hitting my knees on the bars and the pegs being high I've been very happy. I just installed new lower pegs and plan on raising the bars but I just ordered my X4 so I might delay that.

^^Yeah, that's me as well. I'm about 6'2" and around 195 lbs so the fifty is a little cramped for me, but it's still a $h1tload of fun though.
