    Thanks B!

    That means we can swap every once in a while? Of course I'll just use your backup SL. Wouldn't dare want to use your race SL.

    I keep looking at the scarecrow that's about to kick the brake lever
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    You know the funny thing is I told my wife last night how sweet your bike looked color matched. I LOVE the look of yours too. HED has a set of Stingers that have Red/White/Black decals. Hmmmmmmm.......do I need a 5th bike for any reason now?

    Couple of pics. I de-stickered the Spinergys but do not have a pic yet. I'll post when I do. Looks much better I think...

    Intensely happy with my 2006 Fuji Roubaix RC

    I got back into cycling at 52 after perhaps a 25-year hiatus from my last road bike (a Peugeot). My market search was initially focused on "comfort" and "hybrid" bikes, focusing on the big 3 brands of Trek, Specialized and Giant. Then I began to hear of the importance of light weight, and that road bike offered more options for hand positions during longer rides. Then I stumbled into the force field of Performance Bike Shops, in particular the Laguna Hill, CA store, which had a "clearance" Roubaix RC for sale. The brifters and derailleurs were Ultegra, which I learned was a better than average group. The Trek/Specialized/Giant models in my price range had Tiagra or 105 components.

    So I bought the 2006 Fuji Roubaix RC in October 2006. I was originally fitted for a 54cm frame, but after a week I concluded that in the "dropped" position I was too cramped. I took it back to Performance, and the store manager allowed me to exchange it for a 56cm model (after exchanging the wheels). Although I felt less cramped in the "dropped" position, this size was too large in terms of the reach to the handlebars, and I ended up buying a 95mm stem to replace the 105mm one.

    Then, using the seat supplied by Fuji and wearing a pair of jeans, I took it on 15 mile ride on the Peters Canyon/San Diego Creek trail. The net result was a scary case of genital numbing. This didn't auger well for bicycling as a long-term fitness activity. I went back to Performance and expressed my concerns. I was tutored on the proper positioning of my body on the seat (i.e., be sure that the seat is positioned to support the "sit bones", not the crotch), told not to wear clothes that have a thick crotch seam. It was also suggested that I buy a different/better saddle and a pair of bicycle riding shorts for better cushioning. For years, I had derided bicyclists for wearing those garish, skin-tight shorts. Of course, what I didn't realize was that these shorts have padding where it's needed. Fortunately, after these changes, along with some bicycling habit changes (getting up on the pedals and taking breaks occasionally), that problem appears to be solved.

    I have since ridden the Fuji around Mission Bay, up and down the Silver Strand from Imperial Beach to Coronado, from Mammoth Lakes up to Lake Mary and back, all over Irvine/Newport/Corona del Mar and up and down the South Bay from Manhattan Beach to Marina del Rey. Other than the WTB Rocket V seat, the addition of a Cat-Eye Mighty 8 computer and the replacement of the rear tire with a Continental Gatorskin, the bike is stock. Performance let the bike go with the "cheapie" pedals that had been installed for store display - and I've had no reason to change them.

    Bottom line: While Fuji as a brand may not have the marketing power of Trek, or the cachet of Specialized, I believe their models offer superior value per dollar spent. In other words, you get more bike for the money.

    You are right.
    Except it wont have those dimples and speed stickers that make you go faster.

    Seriously, will check the LBS if they have the FP for a good price and they do have some new decals too, better than the previous version.

    2003 Cross

    Can't say my ride is even in the same league with some of the beauties seen in the posts above, but it gets me where I want to go.

    He was trying to steal it, and almost did, until I knocked his skinny ***** on his back. Don't mess with my bike!

    my turn.

    IT's not mine, but it is in my garage. Yes, the rider is an exceptionally small woman. Disturbingly, the bike is marginally to large for her.

    I am loyal to FUJI, having had a Fuji Ace 2002/2003 road steel bike, also, Fuji Crosstown steel
    frame hybrid, and also a aluminum MTB Nevada v1 bike.

    But, more recently, I've had to shop around for models, and have seen there are cheaper
    alternatives perhaps with less quality, but with a lot lower price, for aluminum, and great
    components. I think FUJI could do more to adapt to the strengthening Canadian dollar
    by dropping prices by at least 30 percent.
