2001 FIT Series One
Mike aitkens own fit series one
Rewind back to 2001 Norwich indoor skatepark, the last stop of the newly formed fitbike co and seventies teams uk tour. it was unreal riding with robbie morales, Garret burns,mikey and all the other greats back then but the real highlight of the night was watching mike aitken give his bike away to my friend and Ex tnt team rider Curtis last ,after watching the 2 of them flowing trains all round the park together in their own bicycle motocross style it was a perfect ending to the night...fast forward to 2019 and I have just about put the finishing touches to that exact bike...mikeys very own fit series one....or “fit series one a day” as Robbie calls them due to most of the team snapping the first run of frames. The original fork and bars have been changed as they were twisted and bent out of shape from mikeys abuse but the rest of the bike is very much the same..
