[QUOTE=deburn;7511656]Picked up this Fuji Palisade yesterday off CL. Ishiwata Feather Si 35 tubing. Shimano Exage everything: Motion front, Action rear der, Motion brakes and crank. Couldnt find much info on the Palisade. I did find quite a bit on the tubing though. this bike looks nice but it's not feather light.QUOTE]
I bought a Fuji 'Palisade' at a yard sale for $35 back in 2000. Mine was a dead ringer of yours, including the paint. Had 27" 'Araya' aluminum rims with Shimano 'Exage' components. Also had 6-speed 'Indexed' shifters. Man I loved that bike. I put 1600 miles on it in six months, and it was that bike that really got me into cycling. I never weighed the bike, but to guesstimate I'd say it was at least 25 lbs.
I'm still kickin' myself in the ass for getting rid of it. It would've made a great commuter bike. The 'Palisade' is not top of the line, but its still a good bike, so you done well.
Ride that Fuji and give it everything it deserves.
