Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

The seat tube angle can adjust how the top tube feels by making it more or less steep. Most are this angle, it doesn't change very often.

The bottom bracket height adjusts how low or high your feet are off the ground. Most completes will be this height.

This is a short standover.

A short stand over makes whips easier to kick and get around, but make bars harder since the seat is low and hard to pinch.

2021 Fit STR (LG) Price

This bike is right under $450. To me that is a little over priced for a bike that only has a chromoly front triangle and single wall rims.

2021 Fit STR (LG) Quality

This is a beginner bike with entry-level parts. I would not recommend this bike if you are an experienced rider.

Here's why it is lower quality:

Buy if you are learning:

  • Feeble
  • hops
  • 180
  • pull up barspins
