The Fit Pro is decent, but if I could choose all over again, I wouldn't pick it. The backend isn't chromo and that is coming back to haunt me.

yeah, the backend is the only issue ive ever heard of with a fit. even so, it gives you a reason to buy a new frame after you learn enough stuff to break it.

Also, I don't really think that highly of cassette hubs. If you spend the money on one, they are okay, but for starting out I'd take a freewheel. They are much easier to maintain and cheaper to fix. I've gone through 2 odyssey cassettes before I decided to go with my geisha, which doesnt skip and pop and sound like you are running over a dead raccoon.

get the fit.
I would still honestly go with a Fit.
I asked for opinions, I got different ones.

You would still go for the stolen over the Fit Pro?

do you know a lot of kids that ride bmx? if so, just piece together something good from the start with their extra parts. Economical and long lasting. It just takes a bit of patience and learning how to build a bike.

I don't know anyone around here that rides. Everyone skates around here. I only know people I used to ride with a few years ago in another state.

I know the secret, you can probably figure it out if you look at what's in the message box when you quote someone.

Hint: %

There has to be more lowercase letters than capital ones.
