    In 2013 Fuji did away with the integrated seat posts. Now all of the SST frames have an aero post with a clamp.

    Thank you sir!, Thats the plan, I debadged the wheels until I can get a good light set, and the crank will come when I decide what groupset I will go with.

    The fujis very Hot! In person, it's even hotter. That color scheme makes it very difficult to convey the hotness in 2D, though.

    Yes in person it looks much better. In these photos you really cant see the weave and it actually looks more black than it really is in person. It is actually a very natural grayish carbon look. Thanks for the compliments guys.

    If it's Microtex (or any other synthetic leather-like material) it stays clean and just wears in nicely.

    Yeah, I know that the photo is non-drive side, but with trailers it's all about the 'hitch side'. ;-)
    Also, no one on the planet (that I am aware of) makes 20" cream colored tires. Dammit!

    HOTTT... If these frames had a replaceable derailleur hanger, then I probably would own one as they are pretty classy... Nice bike!

    Imho it would be better w/ white bar tape with white hoods. Just wrapped my bars in white tape and swapped to white hoods on my venge and I like the look. Great bike man!

    Not for me.

    Never been a fan of litespeed frames. I dont know much about the brand, but I dont like this frame particularly. High stack of spacers. saddle tilted down. Dont like the white hoods. If you were to do white in the front, I would also recommend the white bar tape and black hoods.

    Not. I really don't like white hoods on any bike, the tower of spacers isn't that appealing, saddle nose down. Aero frame with shallow rims is a no no in my book also.

    Rule #40// Tires are to be mounted with the label centered over the valve stem.


    Pro mechanics do it because it makes it easier to find the valve. You do this because that’s the way pro mechanics do it. This will save you precious seconds while your fat ass sits on the roadside fumbling with your CO2 after a flat. It also looks better for photo opportunities. Note: This obviously only applies to clinchers as tubulars don’t give you a choice.

    It'll save a lot more than that when determining if the debris that caused the flat is still embedded in the tire casing.

    Haha, definitely!

    I was just quoting the rules...not like I obey all of them, but this one makes sense to me. I'm also OCD, so when I see other peoples tires not mounted like this, I freak out a little bit.

    2012 Fuji Altamira. I just had the wheels built for me by a local guy. They are HED C2 rims with Alchemy ELF/ORCUL hubs. Been raining so much I havent had a chance to ride them yet. They came in at 1450 grams so that knocked about .25lbs off the bike. I didnt weigh it but it should be about 15.7lbs.

    Did yours come stock with SRAM? What model is yours? Mine's a 2012 2.0, came with ultegra and oval parts - just weird how different they are.

    Nice to see more Fujis around these parts.
