Well I've rediscovered my BMX buzz, not getting a chance to get out as often as I'd like but been persevering with the 20" Frame and definitely need something longer. Been keeping an eye out locally for any but nothing coming up and watching prices online ... more »

Not really punk but I do enjoy some King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard. Brilliant live.

Hi Steve, in my 40's and rediscovering BMX doing trails in my local woods. What size did you settle for in the end?

Thanks! Am not sure how long my paint job will last either. My first go at it though and happy with the overall result despite a couple of issues all done on a rainy weekend last week (plenty of them in Scotland). Not sure if it's readily available in ... more »

I keep forgetting to take the reflectors off. 😂

Was red and functional, bought paint online, that blue was meant to be a lot darker! New bars have made a big difference for my knees, can't sit and pedal though! ... more »

Old guy. Picked up a Fit TRL1 2010 cheap a fortnight ago to do up as a shed project. Stripped, painted, Changed parts out... Now it feels like my own, didn't plan on keeping it initially. Ride dirt trails in the local woods with our dog. Don't get much ... more »

Hopefully you don't get stung man. Always difficult over the internet but some folk just aren't the best at communicating.

New bars have made a big difference, especially width. Thanks for all the replies. Staved off the need for bigger frame at the moment. Just great to finally get out for a ride, and sure enough topped out trying to do manual. 😂 Enjoying my midlife crisis. ... more »

I hadn't actually realised HOW small my bars are until I found Fit's 2010 catalogue online. 7.75" I've opted for some Subrosa Codes at 8.75", I should maybe have gone for something taller from what everyone's saying but figure they'll give me enough ... more »

That's my concern, should get more of an idea myself the more I ride. I've always preferred a slightly smaller frame on road/MTB than is normally recommended for my height, or at least a shorter top tube but just not used to BMX geometry so figuring ... more »

Cheers for the advice guys. Yeah, got my bars pretty much in line with the fork. Not had a chance to get out since refurbing it (weather has been dreadful and new episodes of Kiri & Lou needing watched with toddler) but that's helpful advice re the ... more »

Thanks Francky, I guess I'll just see how I get on just now, and keep an eye out for a frame.

I picked up a Fit Bike TRL1 2010 for £30 last week in need of some love. Stripped down, painted and with some minor additions this weekend. I'm 43 yr old with a child seat now permanently attached to my MTB so picked this up for what little time I have
