Get the fit Vandlebars because you want them.

It's a solid parts list, will hold up fine for any beginner.

Would be better off buying a complete and building off of that.
Plus you forgot brakes wink

Bottom bracket won't fit both the cranks and the frame, you need a 19mm Mid

That'll work ^^

Also you forgot grips, pedals & chains just so you know

A lot better. I've heard of people bending/breaking the Mob cranks pretty quick but the Stolen Team cranks are pretty well renowned for being very good, and only having a handful of them needing to be warrantied over the several years they've been out. Plus they're 48 spline, which is much better than the 8 spline the Mobs use.

Personally though I'd pick Odyssey Thunderbolts but they're quite pricey, worth it though. If you choose some more parts be sure to comment back here so we can make sure everything will fit too

What about these? They are still semi cheap but are 48 spline, and would they fit with the 19 mid?

Yeah they'll fit, I have no clue about them though because they're fairly new I think.

Maybe someone else on here does

Who needs pedals, a chain, and grips? I don't ride them.

On a serious note, those parts look good. I want that seat so bad. I'm cheap so I usually try to get my shit on sale, but it's hard to find good stuff for less than retail value. I don't ride brakes so I couldn't tell you what is good and what isn't.

Personally, I like Sweepstakes bars over Lumberjacks because of the upsweep. Not everyone likes upsweep though.

Also 9" bars on a Fit High Top is a pretty tall setup. Some people like that. Personally, I would run an Enduro (30mm) with a 6mm spacer, and if I decide it was too tall, I could always drop the spacer. alternatively, you could go Turtleneck or Aitken (24mm) with 12mm of spacers to get the original High Top rise, and have more adjustability. 12mm of spacers is kinda wack though.

I was gonna mention the cranks, I would look for something a tad higher end.

Remember, you get what you pay for. I have always suggested spending the extra money on the structure of the bike (frame fork bars cranks) and you can typically get away with cost effective stuff in most other spots.

Your gearing choice is odd too, 28/8 is gonna pedal pretty hard compared to the typical 25/9. That means higher speeds, but harder acceleration.

Personally I wouldn't want a seat I can put stuff in, purely because I would forget. (I am good at that). Also you can get seats for 30 bucks less. That's just me. I have a hard time deciding and justifying a lot of prices out there when I can find similar setups way cheaper, maybe with a feature or two less.
