Fuji Vs. Specialized
Hey guys, I wanted to get your thoughts on which manufacturer makes better bikes... I currently have a 2011 Trek 1.2 and want to upgrade to an entry level, full carbon road bike. I've tested a 2012 Fuji Gran Fondo 3.0, 2013 Specialized Roubaix, 2012 Specialized Tarmac Apex Mid-Compact and a 2012 Trek Madone 3.1. Out of all of them, I really liked the Fuji and the Roubaix the best. I'm not into the aggressive geometries and prefer a more upright feel. The Fuji is about $25 less AND it has much better components... 105's vs. Sora. The thing is, I have no idea how good Fuji's are. I've owned a Specialized Rockhopper in the past and I currently own a Trek and I had no problems with either. Has anybody had any experience with Fuji? How do they compare with Specialized? Both offer a lifetime warranty on the frame, but regardless, I'm hoping under normal use, I'd never have to file a claim in the first place...
