Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pics of my ride, 07 Professional 2.0. I swapped the stock stem and bars for a carbon Specialized carbon stem and Deda shallow drop bars. I picked up these items at a swap meet for a total of $27.

I'm not sure if I've posted mine in race trim yet.

Yeah, I've had it since August of 07. I think I have one of the few factory record builds they did. Are those 9's? look deep and sweet.

I have an '05 Fuji World touring bike. Reynolds 853 steel, CF fork, 105 FD, Deore RD (I think). It's a great bike, I got it in 2006 when I was shopping for a touring bike and my LBS offered it to me at a good discount just to get it out of their inventory (sitting at the shop for >18 months with no takers). I've toured in it and use it for transit. Not as heavy and lumbering as a full-on touring bike, but definitely more spread out and stable under load than a racer.

My first post in the Road forum! Now I must go and buy some spandex!

Well, it's my wife's actually but she thinks BFs is pretty silly and wouldn't take the time to post (she's pretty bright actually) so I'll do it.

Fuji Team Pro. Full CF with an Ultegra DuraAce mix except the crank which is a SRAM Force in CF.

I ride 2006 Roubaix. This is my first road bike, made on it over 3500 miles.
58cm Aluminium frame with carbon fork and seatstays.
Tiagra / 105

The only thing I've upgraded is the saddle, to Selle SMP.

Not many Fuji bikes here either.

Thinking about upgrading soon to carbon with better components, maybe also a Fuji.

My Fuji is a touring bike, not a race bike. I like it. I bought it because of the frame, and because I had recently spent over budget on my race bike. I do not regret my Fuji. I've had to upgrade some of it's original components. But, the frame is a good one. Overall , I've been happy with it..Fuji bikes were not at all uncommon at the mega bike store , where I bought it.. Fuji's are somewhat lower end. They sell lots of em..

I'd love to tour France. But at this picture I tour Israel, as I do every weekend. This picture is from the Golan Heights, close to the border with Syria.
I guess that the road signs look very much alike some of the European.

Here are some more pics from the same ride in this area.

The great thing here is that you can ride the whole year, there is no snow, no really cold weather, and not much rain.
And yes, here also there are bunch of Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, Giant.... a bit less European bikes, like Cervelo, Ridley, Pinarello, Cinelli.
Fuji are fairly priced, but the marketing is not good enough.

Here is my Fuji:



Bought the frame over the winter, getting ready to start the build as soon I figure out what size bottom bracket to get. (feel free to answer if you know)

Dynamic 10

I have a Fuji Dymanic 10. (hi everyone I am new to this forum) I got it for free from my father. He recived it free from a friend when my dad was going to do a small local triathalon. The man that had it before my father got it at a police auction for $25.

I am not sure of the exact date, but the bike is circa 1978-80. It has the Dial-A-Comp brakes, Suntour shifters, Nitto Bars, but I broke the Nitto stem the other day in a crash. The bars are foam wrapped. I have the 80's style shoulder carrying draft bag under the top tube. NO cages, can't decide where I want one. They weren't on them originally I am guessing.

It is a great riding bike and has had a lot of use. I love using it even if the stand over hieght is about an inch or two too tall.

making the switch from dirt and "urban" riding on a Marin Muirwoods 29er that weighs about 85lbs...to a 2009 Roubaix that I got a great deal on today. My wife said I should stop talking about buying a road bike and told me a few days ago to pick one out for Father's Day. I think I made a good choice. now i just have to wait a week to get it (didn't have 58cm in stock)

Here's, what I like to call, the CAAD9 KILLER or maybe THE WET NOODLE



Basically I was looking into getting an aluminum frame and my cousin was selling his 08 Fuji Roubaix for cheap so I said why not. Doing some research I know this exact frame has been around since 04 or 05. It's a decent frame, and somewhat light. Painted it black and cut my own decals. I would say its not only the coolest looking bike I own but also the most fun to ride, and i've ridden various carbon bikes the last few years. I love the road feedback you get by riding aluminum, yet the ride isn't super uncomfortable thanks to the carbon seat stays. The lateral stiffness is not very impressive on this frame due to the carbon seat stays but its good enough for me to race on. The cheap price of the frame also gives you the sense of 'i don't care' if you crash it, unlike what a carbon frame might entail. The size is perfect for me, because in the past I used to get frames that were too big.

i ride an 09 fuji roubaix pro. its alu frame with carbon seat stays and fork. i chose it over a cannondale becuase a roubaix based bike is much better for the crappy country roads i ride on. its a very smooth ride, but i dont think id use it to race on as its not as stiff as other frames. its a great climber.

ive replaced the saddle, even though the origional was just fine, just wanted a bit of bling. i also replaced the seat post, stem and bars for some carbon.

my only complaint is that it would have been nice if it had come with a shimano crankset instead of the FSA. the FSA is fine though and it did keep the price down.

My campus ride when I first got it. Handlebars re-wrapped and a non-absorbent saddle installed b/c I'm too lazy to carry around a plastic bag, but otherwise original. Ok, actually I removed the FD and small chain ring b/c I don't use them, and the rear six don't rock a gnarly enough angle for me to need the FD as a safety guide.

1982 Fuji Supreme
0404 Valite
Suntour Compe-V FD
Shimano Light Action RD
Dia Compe (500?) Dual Pivots

As the OP mentioned, Fuji's do seem pretty rare (newer ones at least). Probably because when I was looking for a new bike, I couldn't find a local shop that carried them :\

2010 sl1 rc

Just picked my 2010 SL1 RC. Full Sram Red, weighed in at 15.2. This was a replacement frame for my 07 SL1, had a frame issue and Fuji replaced it with no questions asked.

Nice bike. I was thinking about getting SL1 but got a deal through my bike club and ordered SuperSix. I still have my 09 Fuji Roubaix.
