Those are all dirt jump bikes and the frame will be to long for Flatland unless you are really tall they wont be a great choice. Here is a bike that is a better choice:

Most Flatland bikes have a top tube smaller than 20 inches, it makes it easier to maneuver around the bike.

20 inch bmx bike refers to the diameter of the wheels. The top tube lengths are all different depending on your height and such.


#7

Right, but in the world of Flatland, its all about the shortness of the top tube.

i know a bit about it. get any where from a 18 to 20 inch top tube. and just a hint, DO NOT BUY COMPLETE BIKES. put a bike together. get animal parts and i would suggest a kink frame http://www.animalbikes.com/ and 2 to 3 hundred isnt gonna cut it for flatland. everything to make it your lookin at bout 600 to 1200 bucks


#9

I know. I didn’t want him confused thinking all 20" bikes have 20" top tubes.
