    RIP Fuji Roubaix RC, 06-17-2007 to 9-26-2014

    I feel as if an old friend has died today My 2006 Fuji Roubaix which has seen me through success and failure, good times and bad, had to be laid to rest today.We experienced many first's together, our first half century, our first metric century and our first imperial century. I feel she was too young to go at only 16,214 miles and am sad to report that the mechanics at the shop indicated she probably suffered for quite some time before giving out. Instead of dwelling at the loss i am hopeful that her parents, Advanced Sports Intl, have an orphan frame available that her many still useful components can be donated to. They say it will be a few weeks to process the paperwork to see if I am a worthy foster parent. In the meantime she lies motionless in the back corner of performance bikes waiting to be recycled into something meaningful again.
    RIP.

    Performance seems to think there is a good chance Fuji will provide a warranty replacement but we shall see what that is. Maybe i will get lucky like beanz and get upgraded to a full plastic frame
    In the meantime, anyone in north San Diego that sees a Clyde riding a tandem alone, don't worry, i didn't lose anyone

    The fuji plastic is nice. I like my CX bike allot over all the crappy back roads we have. I might see you on the trail tomorrow if stars align...eta somewhere around 11am is when I'll make my pass.

    Bummer, but hope that it turns out to be a blessing.
