im trying to get my brother into riding, and he needs a good bike to start out. He will probably ride mostly dirt and he is 4'11. I was thinking about getting the fit aitken 1. Any suggestions for his first bike?

completes suck, buy some used after markets on here.

you find two odyssey rims for like 60 bucks

a s&m frame for 150 from beastassdick

theres some badger bars for 30ish somewhere in the first two pages

hubs are easy if your not picky

stems are common

i have fbm forks for 40 shipped

you canfind odi grips retardedly easy for 10-12bucks

all youd have to do is buy the little things.

I seek progression, not perfection.

thats true, but idk if he is going to stick with riding. i dont want to spend a lot of money if he doesnt stay riding. i just need a complete for him to learn how to ride on then build him up on a custom

Or his little brother can get a complete replace parts as they break because he is learning?

Fit completes are nice, I ran one till, I finally replaced every part. It is a good starting bike, hope he has fun!

You are very lucky man! Yeah, just help him take care of his bike, the fit complete will probably last him, with some minor changes till he grows out of it and by then he will have a custom over time.

Craiglist. Just type bmx in your areas craigslist and send a couple lowball offers to some legit listings

dude effting, i rode a fit complete and destroyed everything in under a year. shit i even bent the rear triangles out to the right so my back wheel is angled. and my method still adds up to around 350-400 which is what he would be spending on a complete anyway.
