Bike check: My new bmx

2020-05-13

My new bmx bicycle was delivered today. I wasn't sure when I'd recieve it because of the level 4 covid-19 lockdown regulations in place. Level 4 only allows the sale of certain "essential goods". I guess different people have different definitions of what is essential.

I bought a 2019 Fitbike Co STR Complete. The delivery from bmxdirect.net only took 4 business days.

Why a bike from Fitbike Co? Because it was the only decent complete bmx that I could find. It came down to a Fitbike Co bmx, or none at all. But honestly, given the choice between this and similar complete bikes from other manufacturers, I'd still have considered buying this bike. It seems like a solid base to build on.

A photo of a 2019 Fit STR Complete 20 inch BMX. It is completely matt black (black frame, handle bars and wheel rims), with the exception of olive green grips and tires.
