2020 Fit STR Review


This is a perfect bike for an entry level rider that wants to focus on street riding. The geometry is designed for progressive street riding. The STR has a longer chain stay that will make manuals and bunnyhops easier.

2020 Fit STR Price

Fit made the STR for right at $400. Is it a good price? Sure. Less than $500 is always good. Usually Kink or Stolen make similar quality bikes for a little less then $400, but Fit is a good name to ride.

2020 Fit STR Quality

I’m a little disappointed with the quality here. Single wall rims are just asking for trouble.

Highlights

Cool Colors and TT options 🤪

The colors on this bike are pretty cool. I love the mint. 😍 I also like the fact that you can choose between a 20.5 and a 20.75 inch top tube.

Lowlights

Not worth the price

The single wall rims really put me off. I think this bike should be closer to $330-$350. It just wont last like it should.

Buy if you are learning:

  • Bunny hops
  • x-up
  • feeble
  • double pegs
  • pull up barspins

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • 180 off drops
  • 360
  • tail-whips
  • big stair-sets
  • feeble to spin

Conclusion 🤩

If you absolutely have to buy this bike, you can. But only do it if you are a real beginner and don’t plan on going hard. You will thrash it. Get something a little better if you want it to last. 🙁
