FIT

https://www.jrbicycles.com/storefront/i … uctId=4017




My GF just bought this for me for a Xmas gift. I understand this is S&Ms sub company. I was wondering if I should return it and just build a s&m frame. You see I'm pretty much all about American made products and it kind of bothers me that some of there products an half and half. So from what I understand FIT frames are USA made by s&m and the complete bikes are from overseas?? I mean is this a good bike and frame? I'm scared of riding junk. My GT Thumper(fueler) was American made and built still,my Robison,moralus,standard were all American made. I'm just worried that this bike isn't qaulity! Are FITs good?

Re: FIT

Fit bikes are good, that Fit is really good. Full chromo, should have nothing to worry about.

Do you have the parts to build a bike if you were to return it and get an S&M frame? If not, it will cost you a lot more than that bike complete. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Re: FIT

I can do every thug myself aside from press in the cranks and head set. I have never ordered a boxed bike but I assume the wheels will come already put together. If not my busy down the street used to build wheels. I dunno I'm just hoping this is a really good bike. Like I said ive only touched Mid school bikes and they have never snapped or broken on me EVER. Granted Mid school bikes were built to last and are some what heavy. I'm put off by all the frame breaking stories of the new stuff. I know ketch,standard,s&m,FBM always make the best products. No matter what.

Re: FIT

Nothing wrong with FIT! If ya want an S&M, just use the parts from that complete, then sell the FIT frame to offset the cost of the S&M frame smile

No I have half the parts to build. I still need wheels,mid BB bracket. I have OG pitch forks,stem,harp jack hammer bars lol and some other parts. I got out of riding bmx for a little bit. I can still 180 down a decent sized flight of a public stairs:)! I currently have a Black market riot dirt jump mtb. I was looking for a 20inch and my GF told me she wanted to get me one for Xmas. Like I said I'm just worried it might be junk. Lol most of my bikes had like 1000 into them.

Re: FIT

You couldn't by the parts for less than the whole bike get and ride it if you want to upgrade do so after your get used to the new school style you won't go back.  And if you are worried about breaking that easy  then u would have to seriously have to abuse it? 

Take it ride it enjoy it and thank your GF!tongue

Re: FIT

this is a good bike. the wheels are assembled, but it is a good idea to put them on a truing stand and tighten/true them up.

You'll probably have to put the front wheel in the fork, seat will be on the post, but you'll need to put it into the seat tube (lube it first). Bars should be on the stem, but you'll need to put the stem onto the steerer tube.

It is a good idea to not only check the wheels, but to grease everything. Pop out the headset bearings and put some grease in the head tube, this will reduce the chance of any squeaking up front.
Grease your pedal theads before install, Hell, grease everything. The main components will be pressed.

it is a good bike and I hope you enjoy it. It appears to have some really nice parts on it from the link you posted. Full chromo is a bonus too!

I came here because I know all the OG guys understand what real bikes are suppose to perform like. All the other forums have children talking up all these weird brands I've never heard off.

Re: FIT

I almost talked my friend into buying one of them to get him started, and only because I thought it was something I would ride if it were a complete. the only thing I would change is the brake if anything at all.

great bike

If you can find them:
Fly
Revenge

But the Dia Tech is a solid brake that doesn't cost much.
