    I like it!

    What chainrings are those? Elliptical?

    Q's. Same crank I run on my TT bike, hence the prototype cf ring cover.

    so this is your bike, not the "ex's"?

    btw - if she made you move to TX, you should have aimed higher and gone for full DA.

    I would lose the cf sheet on the rings and save a cleaner cut final for the time trials. Why a tri frame? Stiffer?

    Stiffer, aero, road geometry


    Is it a short heat tube compared to the other fuji's? It looks cool.

    Combo of Chorus and Centaur (crit bike concessions). Very short head tube, first time I've had a deflipped stem in a while.

    Ivan liked the stiffness of the Aloha, it's designed with road geometry and wheelbase, so it corners quite well. It's definitely very snappy, even more so than my Team Issue which is one of the snappiest bikes I've owned.

    Frame came in around 1370g, fork 370.

    Heat *** used with extreme caution. Once they get warm they peel right off. BTW the wheels are heading into their 4th season and probably 4th or 5th set of tires. Zero issues other than the occasional true.

    Lovely rig. I hope to see it in person in a few weeks (depending on what the bill for my youngest's hospital stay comes out to).

    However, you and I have different definitions of a poor man's soloist. Yours may be an upper middle income soloist. Now this lovely rig is a lower middle class soloist:



    While this is truly a poor man's soloist:

    Are those wheels stiff enough for crits? I'm no monster, but I've found lots of wheels are a little too flexy for my taste when it comes to the final kick.

    They seem to work fine for me and several other folks I know, but we're all fairly light guys and more sped sprinters than mashers.

    Hope he's OK. And please say hi if you see me at the races. I'll probably seem a bit vacant, that's just race mode.

    He's fine now -- just a bad case of food poisoning. The base hospital bill, however is $1400 a day for a 3 day stay. We'll see what insurance covers after all the tests / fluids / drugs are thrown in.

    I'll probably be over that way to watch the races at Mineral Wells regardless as my inlaws are in the area.

    Love dealing with those insurance companies.

    I'll be at Mineral, but I'll be on the Addict. Looks like it'll be a fun race.

    That's really a good looking rig! My new team has a team deal with Fuji and some of the guys were talking about this frame. I should email this photo around and that will probably convince a few.
    Well done as always REx.

    Sweet.

    That is what I'm planning on racing for a road bike next year too.
    FS: Fuji SL1 frameset, 55.5cm toptube, excellent condition.

    off topic but I find them fine. I've been up to the high 180s (pounds) on them, as low as 165, and I'm definitely a masher, rocker, out of saddle sprinter. I'm 5'7", ride a 52 Cdale or Size S TCR.

    I like that aero flat/crit bike idea. Personally I can't do it ($$) but that's life. I've looked at them since the first TT bikes came out with 78-79 deg seat tube angles (and on my small 50 cm frames, I always had 71-72 deg head tube angles so that was no different from a TT bike). It sounds radical but they had similar seat tube angle bikes built for crit racers in the 80s, only they had 75 deg head tube angles. One bike had a split seat tube (I think they were seat stays instead) so the rear wheel could tuck inbetween - it actually stuck through them. The chainstays were like 36 cm long. I dreamed about that bike lol.

    The Aloha doesn't have a particularly steep seat tube 73 - 74 degrees depending on the frame size with a 73 degree head tube.

    Nice bike, Rex.

    Not to be confused with the aluminum Aloha which has a 78 degree seat tube.
