how it stacks up

2020 Fit Augie Price

This bike is actually pretty impressive. Fit was able to make a "signature" bike for only $480. Thats a good price, and it is pretty good quality for that price.

2020 Fit Augie Quality

The 2020 Augie comes with lots of chromoly parts, which is a good thing. This makes it last longer, and withstand abuse. Chromoly frame, bars, forks and cranks hold the Augie together. But Fit still failed to put DOUBLE WALL RIMS on the bike. 😭 They will get thrashed.

Highlights

Chromoly Frame, Forks, Bars, and Cranks

When a complete comes with good parts from the start, you won't end up spending as much to fix it in the long run.

Lowlights

Single Wall Rims

I still cant believe this honestly. Why build a high end bike with single wall rims? Most low end bikes have at least a double wall rear rim. Oh well.

Buy if you are learning:

  • Bunny hops
  • x-up ride
  • Bar spins
  • double pegs
  • 180

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • 360
  • tail-whips
  • big stair-sets
  • feeble to spin

Conclusion 🤩

The single wall rims really keep this bike to a beginner level. The 2020 Augie has the potential to be a mid level bike if you buy some new wheels. However, it will hold up for a good while because of the chromoly parts.
