    If you ride a Fuji, please tell us which model you have. What type of material is the frame made out of? What components do you have? Any pics of your ride?

    The reason I ask is because it seems like Fuji bikes are pretty rare. On this forum, there are tons of Treks, Specialized, Bianchi, Lightspeed, etc., but there aren't a lot of Fuji owners.

    When I ride, I see lots of Specialized & Treks around, I hardly see anyone riding a Fuji.

    Let me go first.

    Bike: 2002 Fuji Roubaix (aluminum frame)
    Component: 105
    Not too crazy about the color

    Rides a little on the rough side, but I think I can still take the punishment for a few more years. I don't think I can out grow this bike. I love how the 105 shifts, I just can't imagine how much smoother Ultegra or DA is!

    I'll post a pic when I get home.

    Let's see some pictures of your bike!

    Cadd,

    I am the proud owner of an '05 Fuji Team (C7 carbon) with Ultegra and Velomax Javelins. The ride is fantastic. I find it to be almost as smooth as my Zero Uno steel frame, but much stiffer and more responsive. It is as light as a feather and handles very well.

    I think that Fuji has rec'd a bad reputation for the was they marketed their bikes in the past. However, that applies to their low end models.

    Sorry, no pix at this time

    When people refer to a low-end models, what are they generally referring to? The frame? The components? If it's the components, what is considered low end? Sora? Tiagra? 105? Just curious.

    I ride an 03 Fuji Marseille, 853 steel with Ultegra and a 2003 Fuji Touring (generic steel). I love 'em both.

    I've got an 04 Absolute. I guess you'd call it a hybrid because it has flat bars,but that's the only thing seperating it from being a road bike. It's all alum(frame and fork),so it rides a little rough,but it's fast and light. Picked it up as an impulse buy at Performance Bicycle in Rockville. They had a one day sale,and it was marked down as a leftover,and I had $50 in coupons,so I figured what the hell. I needed a fast beater. It's really nice for a sub $400 bike;shifts smooth and has great brakes. Looks the business too,it's a lovely flat maroon/black cherry color. Only thing I think I'll change is maybe a softer seat. Since my commute route is pretty smooth,this thing rocks.

    2003 Roubaix Pro. 58cm, smooth as butter but as as stiff as a very stiff thing that's been dipped in stiffening fluid and hung out to dry in a stiff breeze.

    Reynold 853 steel frame (Chromoly stays), 105 double group. I've put on a Brooks saddle (Team Pro), a compact crank (Ritchey) and 12-27 cassette. Other than that, I've just replaced/upgraded as things have worn out (tires, bar tape, chain, brake pads etc).

    Hi,

    I am returning an old Fuji that spent 15 years in a basement to working order. I have no idea as to the model. It is 22 years old. I SUSPECT that it is double butted cromoly (due to its extremely low weight). Iy has Suntour components (both derailleurs and an Ultra-6 Freewheel). It has a little surface rust, so a prep/paint/clearcoat is in its future. I have replaced all cables, all brake pads, handlebars, and the shifter levers. (I'm thinking black, a very forgiving color). It is getting a 7-speed freewheel tomorrow. It handles well, it's nimble, and it'll ride better tomorrow. Indexed shifting is in its future. Here it is. Another view. And another.
    Regards,

    Hey, you stole my tires!

    I've since swapped out the bar tape with black, however.

    I would categorize "lower end models" as those with both lower quality frames (usually heavier) and components. Lower end could mean anything, relatively speaking. However, I would consider anything below 105 to be lower end. Not that it's bad. My son's bike has Shimano Sora components and they work fine for him (most of the time )

    I have an 05 Fuji Team Pro Euro, Campy Centaur group. A-6 alloy frame, carbon fork and rear stays, ritchey bars, seat post, FSA SLK carbon crankset, Campy pedals on it of course. Replaced the original tires with Vredenstein Fortezza SE's.

    Ok, here's my bike...pic taken 3 years ago when it was brand new. Now it's a little dirtier. I'll try to take an outside picture to post up.

    Ha ha I got y'all beat (so far, at least in the beater class)! For $25.00 I picked up a garage sale Fuji Royale 12 speed from the 70's, Suntour on the downtube and Nitto bars, 441 CroMo tubes, some wack generic wheels. It was so covered in dirt from sitting that you could barely tell it was a Fuji except for the Fuji machined into the cranks.

    Took it to the carwash and pressure-washed the dirt to find a near mint beauty that has replaced my fixie and Cannondale as my commuter. It goes down the road easy and straight and fits me like it was professionally fitted. It's not ugly, just plain and (BETTER YET!!!) invisible. I don't make a habit of it, but a few times I've just leaned it against the wall at the store without locking it up. If it did get stolen, I'd be bummed for a couple of minutes, but that's about it. Plus, I figure karma is good because I'm giving this old bike maybe a couple thousand more miles of life.

    I'm sure somebody will now beat me by posting about their $5.00 Fuji find. Somewhere back in the archives I remember somebody finding one for $1.00. Somebody's gotta stick up for the old school Fujis, some of which are half-decent bikes.

    OK, I'll post my $5 Fuji find

    It's a low-end 12-speed, hi-ten steel... no idea on the model name. I pulled it apart to build a singlespeed for my brother, though I originally picked it up because I wanted its 1970s Nitto Olympiad bars and stem. The rest of the components weren't much... the usual Suntour VX set, and a Fuji-branded Custom crankset with steel chainwheels.

    No photos, sorry!

    2005 Fuji Roubaix. 105. Aluminum with carbon forks and stays. Rode a bunch before I chose this one. It just was the right one. 600 miles on it now, with no regrets!! Awesome ride! I get a lot of positive comments on it during different group rides. Not a ton of Fujis out there. It is a nice looking ride.

    2005 Fuji Roubaix Pro. Mostly 105. Aluminum. I've got over 1550 miles on it since January. I replaced the saddle at 600 miles with a Fizik Arione. I've had no other complaints. Great bike!

    I had a Fuji Newest, with Tiagra components. Aluminum with chro-moly forks.
    A good bike, but ride was a little harsh. Moved on to a steel Gunnar Road Sport.
