    I have seen the Roadbike Light !!!!!!!!!!

    Oh yeah, rode my new bike today, quick 10 miles. Fuji Newest 2.0. Awesome ride, never with my Hybrid could I do 14-15 mph into a 20 mph headwind !!!!!!!!!! Cruising at 15 no wind is effortless. The Clipless are great. Flight Deck controls! Can't believe the difference, the last roadbike I had was 30 years ago. Like many people should'a bought the road bike right off the bat, but it's good to have the hybrid for bad weather, muddy, conditions and such. To all Rec. riders who think they have to spend 2000 dollars on a bike to do 30-40 mile rides, don't, it's not needed. If you want to race that different I know. So all in all I am as happy as a Pig in S#^! with this bike. Just have to really dial it in for myself and wear my shorts next time and I'll have it made in the shade.

    GET A ROAD BIKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!

    Regards Tony

    Shouldn't Fuji be taken to task for false advertising? Their "Newest" model isn't any newer than any of their other models and their "Finest" model isn't at the top of their line.

    I agree that road bikes are the best. If It would quit raining I would be on mine now.

    Glad you like the new bike. I'm another who just couldn't imagine there would be that much difference between a road bike and hybrid.

    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
