    What you guys think about my new FUJI Mountain Bike?

    Here is the video I use it for commute to work I work in an Airport.

    This bike cost about $650 US new



    I am thinking of getting road tires for it I heard it will go faster and be easier to pedal?

    I did consider a road bike but MTB are a lot more durable I heard.

    Nice looking bike. First thing I would do is ride down to your local bike shop and have them fit you to the bike so that you are in the proper riding position. ie, saddle height, saddle angle, bar height, etc. The second thing is to replace that saddle. The super soft and cushiony saddles will chafe on longer rides. If you are planning on rides (longer than 10 miles) then you should measure your seat bone and get a saddle that is the correct width for you with much less padding on it. Specialized makes some beautiful Body Geometry saddles specifically for this.

    I can hardly believe your seat is that low. I find when I have it adjusted higher, I can push harder on the pedals. Or maybe you chose a frame a bit big for your height.

    Are these the parts?
    Fork:SR Suntour SF14-XCT-MLO w/ 100mm travel
    Front Derailleur:Shimano Altus, M310, 34.9mm
    Rear Derailleur:Shimano Acera, M360 SGS, 8-speed
    Number of Gears:24
    Shifters:Shimano SL-M310 Rapid Fire, 8-speed
    Chainset:SR Suntour XCT

    You can do what you want but I find the videos a bit more interesting when you see a description of the parts.

    Does it come with fender mounts? Since it's an older model i can't get details without a real dig online.
