So im interested in the Fit Nordstrom 1 2017 BMX bike, but it dosent seem to be in stock. I'm looking to buy a bike preferably $400, but I'll do $450 for maximum. I know this is very cheap in the bmx realm. I need the bike to be nearly full chromoly with everything sealed. I would also like it to weigh between 25 and 26 pounds. If anyone knows a good bike matching these descriptions, please let me know. Thanks!

Look at the Colony Premise or Eastern Shovelhead both great bikes with full Cromoly Frame, Fork, and Bars and sealed hubs and bottom bracket and double wall rims front and rear.... I'd defiantly recommend both of these bikes....

Oh and don't get the Fit Nordstrom 1, Fit complete bikes are way overpriced just because of the name... the Nortstrom 1 only has sealed bearings and Cromoly Toptube and Downtube and that's it really... the bikes I showed above are WAY better than the Fit for pretty much the same price...

Awesome man thanks for help! One more question. If I'm about 5'8" would a 20.75 TT be fine? Sorry i forgot to specify my height in post.

20.75 should be fine. I'm 5'9" and I prefer 20.75, but I've been riding a 21". I don't mind 20.5 either. I actually own all 3 now that I think about it. I'm more picky about my back end, and head tube though. Has to be over 13.25, and 75°. That's me though. It's all personal preference.

Yes 20.75 should be absolutely fine for your height....

Eastern is having a sale right now, and mongoose makes some very good bikes for what they cost. They both do actually. They both have something to prove, so they sell better quality bikes for cheaper than some more reputable brands, where you are paying for a brand, and not quality parts.

I can vouch for the Eastern Shovelhead. I just got back into riding & decided on the shovelhead. Imho, quite the bike for the money.

Just save all your money and get a Sunday Gary Young Special. You won't regret it.
