Fit Bike Co, based in Santa Ana, California, was founded in 2000, and offers rider-designed and -tested BMX bikes, frames and components, and small parts such as wax, bolts and bearings, plus soft goods including T-shirts, outerwear and hats.
Its 2015 range of complete bikes features top-of-the-line signature models endorsed by Tom Dugan, Ben Lewis and Shawn McIntosh. McIntosh’s ‘Mac Sig’ stands out more than most, with a gold chainwheel and Fit High Top stem, full chromoly frame with integrated headtube drilled for gyro tabs, full chromoly fork with one-piece steerer and tapered legs, 9″ chromoly bars and Fit Indent 19 cranks with sealed Mid BB.
Other new models for 2015 include the ‘Fit 18’ with 18” tyres and 18” top tube, the Van Homan-endorsed ‘VH1’ available in either Trans Teal or Trans Gold with chrome bars, and the ‘PK 3’ in camouflage green with brown tyres and grips. There is also a full range of frames, including custom models, plus parts such as forks, bars, stems, sprockets, cranks, seats, grips, pedals, pegs and tyres.
As well as Dugan, Homan, Lewis and McIntosh, the Fit Bike Co team is made up of Mike Aitken, Dan Conway, Brian Foster, Justin Inman, Pat King and Florent Soulas. Many have appeared in the company’s DVD releases, including the four-volume ‘Fit Trippin’’ series, ‘Stay Fit’ from 2009, ‘Fitlife’ from 2007, and the latest release, ‘Holy Fit’, featuring some heavy moves from Homan.
