Full chromoly everything, Stronger bb, integrated headset, smaller gear set up, brand new... The Fit is a really good set up too though. You can't really go wrong with either one, but the Stolen is a bit more up to date.

True, but you still wouldn't be able to have the integrated headset.

The stolen uses a different, more modern style head tube. Instead of the traditional press fit bearing cups, the cups sit right inside the headtube. It makes for a smoother, stronger, lighter?, and cleaner looking front end.

I would go with the stolen, b/c then you know what has happen to the bike and all that sh1t. plus its brand new so I would go from there with it and as things break replace them.

Stolen. I'd actually trade one of the lower-model stolens for my fit.
