2021 Fit Series One (MD) Conclusion
Last year, fit’s line was a little overpriced. However, it seems like they fixed that with the 2021 Series One. It is priced close to similar quality bikes. That makes me happy. Get the MD version if you are 5’3″ to 6′.
This bike is for a new rider who does not have very much experience, but want’s to try out the sport. The geometry will help a brand new rider feel confident and controlled, but the quality will not hold up to advanced riding.
