Hey guys!
I am new to the forum so if this post is in the wrong section please feel free to lock, and direct me to the proper discussion thread.
So I am stuck between these 3 bikes. I just got back into BMX recently due to my futture plans to move to NYC, and no longer needing a car. I am 6 foot and prefer a 21 top tube, and these bikes provide that. My main concern is weather FIT bikes are worse quality than Subrosa or vice versa. Also I am leaning towards LHD due to my right hand side grind preference. Anything helps guys.
Thanks!!

The Fit Dugan is a steal and they make great bikes . Good quality . Sealed bearings , good specs , good aftermarket parts .

The Subrosa Novus is pretty spec'd hot though too , I almost bought one .

In the end I'd say choose what you want , but Fit is the leaning factor , for me at least .

Both are solid choices, but I just want to add that if you can afford to, it's better to build your dream bike! sure it will cost more, however you won't regret building what you truly want!

Like everyone else has already stated, neither is a bad buy if you're looking to drop that kind of cash right out of the gate.

I had a Novus, it was a badass complete. However, if you're already looking at going LHD just go with the Dugan. No sense in spending more money than you need to. Both bikes are awesome completes.

The Fit bikes tend to be the best bikes for the money when you are comparing the same price range. However the deal we have on that Subrosa Novus for just $575 is almost too good to pass up.

If i buy a new hub that is LHD hub to put on the subrosa would the cranks/ sprocket/ bottom bracket be able to switch over to LHD? I ask because the Subrosa deal is really good. Thanks so far for the help guys

My other concern ( it might be stupid ) is the hub axles. I am wondering if these stock axles will bend. Not sure whether they are chromoly or just steel. I just don't want the axles to bend and be out of a bike.

If you buy a new LHD hub and lace it up to the rear everything should be ok. The shadow killer cranks are rhd/lhd compatible and neither the bottom bracket or sprocket are effected by the change.

The axle bolts are female and should be chromoly. You probably will not need to worry about that too much.
