They have a good tutorial on how to calculate spoke length there too. Basically you need to know the following things: 1. ERD or Effective Rim Diameter: GSport lists this as 389mm. You can also measure this yourself. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fit T/A 2.4" on Norco Siege 9/26/2014 11:15 AM

You could probably fit one on the front, but I doubt you could fit one on the back. The 2.4 T/A tires are quite huge when inflated.

Ya the bars are quite tall on the new Fit completes with that top load and spacers. If you're 5 8" you might want to think about a 20.75" top tube. It's definitely up to you though!

Added reply in a thread 2014 fit vh2 9/20/2014 9:27 AM

Fit's are some of the best completes on the market so you can't go wrong with one. That bike has a 21" top tube, does that work for your height? You should probably be something like 5' 9" - 6' 1" or so to feel most comfortable on that frame.

Added reply in a thread Tree OG sprocket and fit skyscrapers 9/19/2014 4:25 PM

I'm not sure what people are talking about when they talk about slamming their sprocket. You can run a spline drive sprocket anywhere on your spindle, you just add spacers behind it if you want it further out just like normal. The idea is you want it ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pinched Stem Help?? 9/18/2014 8:31 AM

This would work. Another tip is keep the bars on your stem when trying to get the stem off for leverage.

The whole bike is aftermarket except the wheelset. The wheels are the same as on Fit Signature level bikes, double wall Revenge Rims, with Sealed female hubs front and rear.

I've had the silencers before and they rode quite well. They lasted as long as any other plastic pegs I've tried.

I've got a hitch rack on my '10 Sentra and it does the job well. Only catch is that it hits the ground if you're going up or down a steep grade. It's not a big deal, you just have to be a bit more careful. If you've got a hitch already it shouldn't cost ... more »

Thanks man I love this bike. Still have the other sprocket but I'm going to keep it. I like having a collection of old parts they always come in handy!

Beauty!

Added reply in a thread Spline Drive benefits and info? 9/8/2014 9:24 AM

If you get the bossless Indent Cranks they are actually quite a bit lighter than the 3 piece version. Also, install is very easy as the Fit Key or Key Guard Spline drive sprockets are made for those cranks and they just slide right on.

Had to wait all summer to get my hands on this FBM Hardway frame and now that I got it I'm super stoked. Here's some pics and a run down of my current set up: Frame: FBM Hardway, 20.75" Fork: S&M Widemouth Pitchfork Handlebars : S&M Credence

Bump! Last night to get in on this auction and raise money for a great cause!

Added reply in a thread crank length? 9/5/2014 7:12 PM

You won't notice 5 mm a ton. If you run 4 pegs though it might give you a little less clearance on your back foot.

Added reply in a thread Opinion on 2015 fit 9/5/2014 12:38 PM

We just got our 2015 Fits in and this bike seems very solid. It looks like they made the forks wider for lots more tire clearance for the 2.4 tires and there's plenty of room in the back of the frame too.

Added reply in a thread Buying BMX for beginner: brand reputation Vs. performance 9/4/2014 10:38 AM

You also need to be concerned with size. The GT Bump has a 21" top tube which is considered a full size bike. These are good for people who 5' 9" - 6' 1" or so roughly speaking. It does look quite nice on paper though.
