used is good, it will be a rider. top tube needs to be on the shorter side.

Re: flatland frame choice help (please read)

Two things here, Flat frames are 18.5" - 19" top tube length-ed and have a very low step over height.  This makes them great for whipping an passing around but not strong in the way a ramp frame needs to be.  Also the top tube length and over al wheel base would be too cramped.  I think you are trying to reconcile two disciplines that demand completely differed specifications from their bikes.

Blammo?  Zippo?  Haro is department store junk at this point not designed for real riding, just rolling around or getting little Johnny to little league practice on his own.

A recent development in the flatland world is street flat.  Matthias Dandios is currently using a Haro SD v2.  So I was wrong about not being able reconcile the two and Haro being junk.
