I am lookin to buy either the 2015 Sunday am 20.5 or the 2015 fit Dugan 1 20.5 LHD. The Sunday has a cromo down tube and dropouts. The fit has a cromo front triangle which is better for the money? Sunday is $350 and the fit is $360 what is better

Fit for sure, especially if you need left hand drive because you grind on the right.

The Fit has more chromoly in the frame, along with fully sealed hubs. So I would go with that bike.

I would get the Dugan. In fact I did get my kid a Dugan 1 for Christmas last year, so I'm not just talking out my ass.
In addition to having more cromoly, the FIT also has sealed hubs, and you can actually get some spare parts for them (I think Dan's stocks the drivers).

I also think the FIT has slightly better Geometry.

Really though, they are both really good bikes, and either would be sick. If you ride left foot forward and want to run pegs, the LHD on the FIT might be a problem though.

Should I get the Dugan 1 or the aitken 1 the Dugan has a 20.5 TT length and the aitken has a 20.75tt I'm 13, 5'3" what would fit me for a while?

I'm 5'5 and ride a 20.85". It feels fine for me. The 20.75 would fit you for longer.

This whole tt size is crazy to me. Back in the 80's I never thought about tt or chain stay length. Bar length and height wasn't an issue either. I Just got back into bmx last year and all these size differences seem minimal. 20.5, 20.75 and 21.does it really make a difference? I chose 20.75 based off of suggestions but I'm not sure that I would ride any better on a different sized frame.

One more question 2015 Sunday blueprint or 2016 kink curb what is better.

Both of them seem to be pretty much exactly the same as far as parts go, aside from the Kink having a semi-sealed cassette (uses 1 sealed bearing in the hub) as opposed to the Sunday's cassette which uses a fully unsealed cassette... So while both bikes honestly aren't that great, the Kink is a tiny bit better.

Yeah, bikes sucked back then, and there wasn't much choice. The geometry wasn't readily available either.

Things are much nicer now.

TT size makes a pretty significant difference. I can't exactly articulate how it feels different, but a 20.75 feels horrible to me compared to a 21. I'm comparing a Black Bike to my Barcode, so the geometry is otherwise similar.

Looking back, the companies that didn't suck picked up on TT length pretty early. A S&M Holmes was a Dirt bike with a longer TT, and Standard had the lengthy and shorty

Ok I was just looking at the cheaper bikes not worth it as far as no chromoly.

What about the kink gap I was looking at it and it looks to be almost the same As the Dugan but cheaper

Unsealed front hub, but that may not make a difference.

Without seeing a Kink in person, it does seem like a bit better deal. I had seen enough Fit completes in person to know the welds were going to look clean and the paint was gonna be solid. I'm not saying the Kink bikes won't have solid paint and welds, just that I don't know.

I also have a bit of brand loyalty toward S&M/Fit/Revenge.
