Great choice!! When advising frame dimensions this was the exact frame I had in mind (Riding one myself as well) :) You may find the bars a bit high, especially since the bike comes with a toploader stem and about 10 mm of spacers under the stem but you can always switch back to your old bars or stem. Have fun!

Wow, that is basically a full custom-built style bike in the shape of a complete. Good pick!

And as Gary ride everything this should fit the purpose well.

He is so good that he probably doesnt have a serial number on his frame, just a cheat code...

Swap the topload for a front load stem and put a smaller spacer on

Thank you again everybody for all the help and advice its all so appreciated man, really is. Big ups to you MSBNL buddy you made it all happen! I needed some direction I was super confused and you made me see the light finally.

Got it 'Stoked' and MSBNL, if my bars seem TOO high I will first swap out my Fit's stem and bars. If that still is not it I will get on a front load stem.

Thanks fellas I will keep you all updated, see ya at the park Cheers!

Rad man bet you are stoked!!!

Ride it as it comes--bars are gonna feel really high to you at first, but you will get used to them. 9" bars with a topload stem is the best

That probably has more to do with Gary Young being a badass than the frame geometry.

Yes, obviously. I just mean that he would ride a bike that fits his style of riding.
