The Fit S3 or S3.5 is probably the strongest, lightest, and lowest frame you can buy.

I just bought the S3 and I can attest that it feels so niiiiiiiiiice. I guarantee you won't be disappointed with an S3 or 3.5.

I do not think $20 would be an overwhelming obstacle. I'm thinking about getting the 3.5 myself. That or the ian. Come on tax check.

Fit Eddie Cleveland is an awesome choice, available brakeless or with brakes, mid bb, internal headset, lowest fit frame ever (almost as low as a fly tierra), tiny dropouts you can still run pegs on, CHEAPER than a Fly Tierra.

in terms of bmx; internal and intergrated are the same.. I love the eddie frame, but it is hard to dial the chain in, I run an odd gear 25-8. I had to use a half-link and 8t driver does not like half link.. I don't think you should run pegs on it though, the dropouts can take it but I would go with hawk or dehart. I am not about spending more than $300 on a frame. It just isn't work it. The S 3.5 is nice and everything but has a heavy price tag. I was disappointed in the price of the Sunday Ian... way too high for a frame..

I'd suggest the Eddie,or the S3.5.

The Fit S3.5 is an LTF with different stickers.

Internal headsets and Integrated headsets are 2 totally different things.
Internal still uses a thin aluminum cup, and are used on race frames.
Integrated use no cups and just drop in the bearings and your good.

I've heard a lot of talk that the S3.5 is the LTF, does anyone have any proof of this?

I love Fit and Macneil too much so any frame from either company is good by me. Also FBM and Sunday frames kick ass. Pay the extra money because the longevity of the frames life will be worth it and make sure you get a frame that has a lifetime warranty on it.

It's HOGWASH. There a MANY differences in the frames, mostly in the rear triangle. LTF has wishbone chainstay, S3.5 does not. LTF has bulleted stays the dropouts, S3.5 does not. S3.5 has removable brake mounts. LTF does not..... etc.
The weight and geometry ARE similar though.
Fit and S&M are connected.
The year 2000:
Robbie Morales has been riding for Terrible One since it started, but now he has left T1 to start a new company called Fit Bikes.
It's official in november 2000. Robbie Morales has teamed up with S&Ms Chris Moeller to form the Fit Bike Co. In the company's short life, they have already been able to put together an all stars team consisting of Nate Hanson, Mike Aitken and Brian Foster.
