I picked up this 2012 Fit Eddie 3 off of Ebay earlier this year and am slowly gathering parts to build it up. It is in good shape and from what I understand, American made. I haven't ridden since 2006, when I graduated highschool, and have been wanting to get back into it, so this is where I will start. Last bike I built was a Fly Pantera (if anyone remembers that frame). So far all I have for this build is the frame, DK Alpha fork, and S&M Redneck XLT stem. Will post more pics once things start coming together. Any ideas/suggestions will be nice, seems like there are a lot of new parts out there and new terminology!

I hope you didn't pay too much thats a Stock Fit Eddie from the 3 series so its an OS(Overseas) Frame. It'll be a good frame to relearn on.

I would definatly get a really good wheel set dont buy stock stuff cuz they break and you will save money in the long run. Wheels are like the most important part next to a frame, get good hubs like profile minis, or shadow conspiracy hubs laced to like primo 7005 rims, gsport or even something like odyssey quadrants. Then I would get comfortable sized bars, good set of forks and cranks. And the other parts get whatever you like smile I think you should do a color combo like no one has or something

Good to know. This build will just be a rider and if I really get back into it like I want, I would like to build up a nicer frame later, maybe an S&M or FBM.

Just a quick mock up of the DK alpha forks w/ the frame. I actually like these a lot more than I thought I would, they are nicely made. Bars, stem and headset are next, just waiting for the bars and headset to arrive.
Went w/ raw Macs and Sunday headset.

I'm not sure yet, definitely want something nice in the back, but with my budget that might be hard. Will probably look for a lightly used rear, hopefully a Gsport or Odyssey stock setup. In the front I won't be as picky. Any recommendations? I haven't biked in like 7 or 8 years, and what was popular back then isn't now (Odyssey and Alex triple walls).

Yeah man hopefully a nice used set comes up once I get money so I don't spend it on something else.
By the way, how do you like those Shadow Noctis cranks, are they good? Or better to go for chromoly 48spline. Still haven't made my mind up on cranks.

Odyssey cranks are the way to go man. Thunderbolts are solid as fuck. 48Spline is a hellava lot stronger so i'd personally go with it if I wasnt so broke. lol

Yeah I am on the lookout for some used Thunderbolts, I have been seeing them pop up on Ebay every once in a while. Also looking at a few others, Stolen Teams, Akimbos, etc. I would prefer to buy from someone from the forum though.

I've been considering buying a sunday complete, its got thunderbolts on it. Although that'd be during summer and you'll most likely have different cranks by then, I will have a pair.
