$150, its a 2006 Fit Pro





I'd like to mess around on a BMX to gain better big bike handling skills (I've only ever ridden 26").

I'm a tad under 6', 210lbs.

It's kind of one of those thing where if I knew anyone who road BMX i'd just borrow their bike until I could decide if I wanted one, but all my buddies ride 26".

As far as I can remember the Fit Pro's have a 20.5 top tube. If you've only ever ridden 26's it's going to feel really small to you I'd imagine. It sounds like a good deal tough.

The only difference between 2006 and 2008 is the newer models have micro-drive.

I've messed around a 20.5 BMX at the local shop. I kinda figured a 21" wouldn't feel too much different coming from a MTB.

Oh, and BTW, the kid selling it says that he bought it, got his drivers license a few months afterwards, and hasn't touched it since.

oh, and I've got the makings of a nice 26" DJ bike, just need a lighter frame.

So I wonder if spending $150 towards a better frame is more worth it then a kids bike.
