The original Fit WiFi frame was a huge, huge seller for a variety of reasons. It was cheap, it came in a slew of cool translucent colors, and it was built with geometry that soundly resonated with young riders who were quickly embracing a new style of street riding, based around quick spins and grind combinations. There weren't (and still aren't) many aftermarket BMX frames that retail for less than $300, but the WiFi hit the right price point at a time when the climate in BMX was changing drastically, and it was a huge success. No matter how good a frame or part may be, there's always room for improvement, so it's time to take a look at the WiFi V2.

For starters, there are some minor geometry changes to the Wifi, but this frame was hot for a reason so they didn't make any drastic moves. For the V2, the steering gets a little faster with a 76° head tube, which is one of the steepest on the market. Both the bottom bracket height and stand over get a bump up, to both 11.7" and 9" respectively, giving the bike more manual power and a taller look. Finally, the rear end was chopped by a fraction of an inch, now measuring at 13" slammed with an extra .3" of room to breathe. Being that this frame is preferred by street/plaza rats, it's doubtful that many of these things will ever have a set of brakes bolted on, so Fit ditched the removable mounts for a sleeker look. Oh, and one last thing; the WiFi is now made exclusively in the United States. Fit owner Chris Moeller stated that this move is for the street riders that prefer US-made bikes, but are still looking to save a little money. The V2 Wifi retails at $319.99, which is a slight step up from the previous price point but still about $30 cheaper than any other US-made Fit frame. For those riders with an even smaller budget, don't fret: the Taiwanese-made Begin and Benny L frames are still available for under $300.

Looking at the last paragraph, there was actually a lot more changed on the WiFi V2 than this writer anticipated, but there are a few constants that aren't going anywhere. Of course the Wifi is still made with full 4130 chromoly construction, straight-gauge top & downtubes, heat-treated 14mm dropouts, integrated head tube and Mid bottom bracket. There are still multiple top tube lengths (20.5", 20.75", 21" and 21.25"), still offered in a translucent option (blue), and you still won't need to buy a separate seat clamp. You can pick it up now wherever Fit goods are sold (including www.jrbicycles.com), and hit up www.fitbikeco.com for more information.
