I'm currently looking at the 2010 fuji classic track and feather, they seem to be around the same price as the kilo tt's here in canada but seem better quality, I thought the classic track was better than the feather but on fujis site the feather costs more, any one know why?

I think the feather costs more because of its classier styling, deep profile rims, etc. The standard Fuji Track is a great starter bike. You can't go wrong.

The feather is prettier.

The shop where I work is a Fuji dealer. The Feather is the exact same frame as the Classic Track. The Feather has a nicer fork and some components but I really don't think it's worth paying that much more for it.

yeah it looks like it has a nicer seatpost, saddle... maybe wheels (i think) but i dunno if it's that much nicer.

I was also pretty much set on the 2010 Fuji Classic Track or 2009 Fuji SE 700c Lager until I discovered they are made in China. Making me re-evaluate other options.

So the Feather has a 1" headtube and the Classic Track has a 1 1/8"? It also looks like the Feather has a slightly tighter front wheel/downtube clearance. Or maybe I'm just seeing things.

That baby blue model is beautiful. I'd like pink but they chose kind of a weird hue/shade.
05-14-10, 12:30 PM
the gray one looks kinda cool too

The feather is actually an old model, I guess fuji revived it for usa consumption this year.
Mine is a 1976, tokyo made, lugged version:

yea I'm always looking for excuses to post pics of my bikes!

The original Feather is an amazing bicycle.
nice, so the classic track has a better quality frame than khs and mercier kilo tts? or pretty much on par?
05-14-10, 01:27 PM
My Kilo was much nicer than the couple of Classic Tracks that have come through the shop. Welds/finish were nicer and just seemed like better quality all around.

If you are both patient, and willing to quickly "pop" (as they say on pickers) on a vintage track frame when you find one, you can score something nice and unique - sometimes for a good price that compares with new frames. I paid ~$350 for my feather, complete w/ old dura ace and suntour superbe pro parts. The trick is to make sure the frame is sound, seller honest, etc. I don't look on ebay for mine, which helps keeps costs down. But there are some sleepers on ebay...
