Yeah the Vex is a good bike. I'd suggest the Kink Liberty, but you want breaks. On the up side, the Vex is lighter than the kink liberty. But yeah, the Vex has good pats, nice color options, and a nice price.

fit str 1 or verde vex? i like the stock paint job on the str and i like the colored rims that it comes with. And the jumps im jumping arent big ass 7 feet jumps. Like 5 or 6 feet with a 4 or 5 foot gap at the most. For now

I'm sorry, but what? If you are asking an unrelated question please make a separate thread. Also please clarify your question so we know what you are talking about.

Lastly do not post in this thread unless it is relevant to the current topic.

if i bought the verde vex, and took off all of the brakes, would it be just as light, or lighter than the fit str 1. and which has better more durable parts.

Go with the STR. The frame at least has a chromoly toptube, which is stronger than the all hi-tense vex.

The Verde Vex is already lighter than Fit STR 1. Brakes generally weigh about 1 lb. So the Vex would be about 25lbs brakeless. The Vex definitely has more durable parts, ad has an integrated headtube and fork bearing race.

im confused, some people are saying the str because of chomoly toptube but then vista says the verde vex has more durable parts. So im gunna go with vista. Can you delete this thread now? since im gunna go with the vex i guess

Yeah the Vex is better than the STR. I'm not going to close every thread that has been answered. People just need to have common sense and check the last post dates before posting.
