    Old Team Fuji Questions??

    Trying to find out about an old 18 speed Team Fuji bike left to me by a relative. It has all Shimano 600 components (derailer, sprokets, brakes, wheels), gear shifters on brake levers, Ritchey Road Force tires (700 x 24C), two badges on bike say "CRMO TANGE Double Butted Tubing" and "Extreme ISHIWATA CRMO" - not sure what any of that means.

    Does anyone know what kind of bike this is (touring?, racing?), how old this bike is, what size it is (24"?, 27"?), and whether it has any value?

    Thanks for your help. AP

    Racing. Decent steel tubing. Good bike in it's day , But probably only worth $300 or less,and then if in nearly perect condition. Size is measured from center of crank bolt along the seattube to the top of the seattube.

    This is the "center-to-top" dimension, which, along with BB height and/or top tube standover height, helps determine a rider's fit to a particular frame. (Top tube length is the other critical fit dimension.) Many people prefer to quote "center-to-center" frame size, since frame angles and frame geometry are all measured from the intersections of the centerlines of the frame tubes. When buying a bike, make sure you know which dimension is being quoted.

    Center to top of extended seattube is the way Fuji and a few others do it. Others are c-top of toptube and others are c-c. There is no 'standard.'

    Look on the tire or rim for the wheel size, not sure when Fuji changed from 27" to 700c
