Dammit, so I recently got back into BMX (I'm 23) and I didn't really bother to check reviews. I bought a BF2 at the store on an impulse and recently bought a pair of Primo hubs laced to the Primo Balance 7005's from Dan's. I thought I would end up having a pretty nice bike and the non-chromo rear triangle of the frame wouldn't really bug me.
Aside from the frame which honestly I'll just beat up til it's done with just like any other bike part, am I going to be fine? Fit does a decent bike once you get level 2 and up right? I know the wheels are pretty good though just from the riding I've been doing. I take it back to the store once a week just to say whats up and have them check out my wheels and even the single wall front is still 100%.
I used to ride from 2004-2007, which is when I rode a Kink Gap(?) which was the shit but it didn't have sealed hubs/BB like the Fit does so I just was impressed that you got that sort of thing for $400 these days. But digging through old threads here, apparently there is a bit of hate for Fit? Not something a new owner really wants to hear..
Check this though, I bought the Primo Balance wheels on recommendation on the dude on the phone, I totally missed the Mint Green Odyssey Hazard Lites for 44.95. I called just to find out my wheel was built within the first 2 hours of their store being open. Meh if anything is shit I'm sure Dans got my back anyway. I'm just a bit concerned since I'm a 220lb rider and it's like 50/50 on those wheels being good or not.
Honestly I'm not really too OCD about gear, I just get butthurt when I don't get the best value for money. Looking back Verde or Amber probably would have been the better purchase, but I also wanted to support my local bike shop.
