Get the felt , they had a solid team back in the day , Scotty Cranmer , James Foster , a bunch of other heavy hitters , don’t get a fit those things are everywhere

"unknown" doesn't help much, any chance of pics?

By reputation, I think Fit and Subrosa would be the best choice of those brands. the Fit Aitken will work ok but it's designed more as a flowy trail bike than a street beast so the unknown fit may be the best deal, especially if it has custom parts.

you'd be better off spending a little more on this. I'll look around a little bit online, and see what I can find.

Decided to head to Chicago for the weekend. Going to take a look around that area and see if anything looks like a good deal.

felt

100 times felt! I'm not a big fan of felt but it looks the nicest and in the best condition but you should add other parts later on of course.
You sure that's all that you have in your area?

How tall are you?

I am 6ft.

In that case Id say go for the arum since its cheap and the larger bike.

Get some used bars and talk the seller down to 120 or less since they said OBO...

At least most of those guys know how to take a picture. LOL. I wonder what that big thing is under the top tube on the Fit. Hard to see in those pics the condition of the bike. They always look better from far away. At least the other guys gave you some up close pics to see the condition better.

Picked up the Subrosa Arum for $100. Need to replace the bars, get pegs and hub guards and I think im good to go. Time to get some bruises

|

Post up some pics when you get to where you like it. Or whenever. Excited for you!!!!! Isn't the Arum a higher end complete? That seems like a good price. But I forget what the pictures of it were like....

I think it was over $400 new. Lovin it so far! Need to replace the handlebars, front hub and sest eventually but it seems very solid. Photo

Meh, just take a sledge to the end of that handlebar. LOL. Just kidding. I don't know if that's a good idea or not. Seems like it would weaken the metal at the bend after it gets bent at all.

Cool looking bike though. Has lots of potential. Whats with the stem? Is that something sticking up out of it?
