New Road Bike Fuji Roubaix 1.0

Finally got an official road bike. Got a 2010 Fuji Roubaix 1.0 with Sram Rival. It came with Alex wheels, I already have a set from Psimet on order. I got Performance to swap out the standard crank with a compact. So far I love the bike. My hybrid, when I put in 100% effort, I can feel things flexing. The Fuji feels more responsive, I do not feel things flexing around. But the ride is comfy enough.

Here it is.





My hybrid will now become my commuter/rain/night riding bike. Which it already was so really I am taking away some of its jobs.



And while I'm at it, here is my mountain bike for the off road fun.

That's pretty sweet. I really like the white tape, post and shifter grips.

Nice. I've got an '08 Roubaix RC and my wife has an '06 Finest 1.0. We really like the Fujis.
