    Looking to get back into BMX

    Hey how's it going? I havent been active on these forums in a couple years minus a few random pop ins, but after my recent seperation from the military I want to get back into BMX. I been out of the scene for a while now and i don't know which companies are reputable (sp?) anymore. I cant believe how light bikes got over the last 4 years.

    Heres what I am looking at ( in order ) :
    - Fit STR Edwin Sig 2010
    http://www.danscomp.com/101895.php?cat=BIKES
    - Eastern Reaper 2010
    http://www.danscomp.com/101587.php?cat=BIKES
    - DK Aura 2010
    http://www.danscomp.com/101255.php?cat=BIKES#

    When I left the sport Fit was the big name, but things change and I just want to make sure i'm not buying garbage. Are these 3 selections any good? Any better suggestions for <700$.


    Thanks for the help in advance, cant wait to get back into the game

    At that price point, all three are very good. I would take either the Dk or the Eastern. Reason being, I like 990 mounts and having gyro tabs which they both have.

    Between the two, I'd take the Eastern only because it have a shorter frame than the Dk.

    I have always rode brakeless. so the no mounts and tabs are actually appealing to me. I like the other STR signature model fit offers right now, but it is LHD and i grind on my left, so i dont want that. plus the edwin has 4pc bars which i prefer.

    Right on. Since you ride brakeless and don't need the mounts/tabs, I'd take the Edwin.

    I like the 4pc bars also. I currently use an old pair of Standard 6 pc bars from the early 90's. Crazy stong bars.

    Well i decided to go with the fit. I am going to order it with a ody MDS chainwheel hub guards from my LBS. are all the hub guards generally the same or should i order a particular set? they match danscomp's prices and typically keep ody. fit, shadow, and quite a few other brands in stock.

    You just have to make sure the hub guard will fit your hub, but other than that they're mainly the same, except for the Gland.
