    Yep. They taught me that the first time I rode with them too.

    Emperor, my wife has had the bike for about 3 months. I know it hasn't been that long, but long enough to find out if it would work for her, and it has. Her longest rides are about 40-50 miles at...

    Point taken.

    Going back to the OPs original post, he's saying, "hey, here's my situation, this is my budget, and I see this bike, is this a good choice?". He isn't looking for a magic deal, he...

    Ok, cool. Let's not split hairs over this.

    It's good for you to state your opinion/experience based on the specific instance of a Fuji model that you bought. That can definitely help the OP make a...

    After re-reading the OPs original post I see that buying used is not a good alternative to him (his words).

    And I'm not saying you recommended these models; it's just that they are not apples to apples to this particular discussion.

    Fuji Gran Fondo? Specialized Tarmac? Hello? ?The OP wants to get a bike he can start with, and you are dissing a brand based on your unique particular experience when you are not even familiar with...

    Well, it doesn't matter that the OP has already stated his budget and his situation, Alias just seems bent on suggesting options that are out of the OP's reach and pissing on Fuji no matter what.

    Agreed, with only 7 cogs gearing choice on the Sportif is rather limited. At this price point some compromises are necessary. The gearing jumps are bigger and it's harder to get used to, but not...

    I thought to pass on my Oval wheels to my wife, and our mechanic said that they'd fit. But at that point you'd have to also change derailleurs, shifters, etc so it would be better to just get another...

    Let's be honest here...

    1) Saddle. Anyone please raise your hand if you have never changed your saddle. I thought so. Me personally? I went through several until I finally settled on a Selle...

    To the OP: my wife has that bike and it is a good bike for the money. For the type of riding you describe it will serve you well.

    Regarding the other comments about Fuji bikes being crap, that's...

    Yes, I did take my turn at the front several times during the ride so hopefully the group noticed that. Only after close to the 3/4 route mark I just couldn't do it anymore.

    I have some questions along these lines. I'm a newbie road cyclist (I'd rode for years on my hybrid but I've quickly found out that road cycling is a different animal) but was in a relatively decent...

    That sounds like some corporate environments... you're supposed to follow all rules and regulations but you are also "forced" to cut corners along the way to meet "deliverables". :D

  18. True, Armstrong treated a lot of people badly,...

    True, Armstrong treated a lot of people badly, but he could get away with it because even though many who knew better could've called him out on his lies, no one ever did. So Armstrong sued, harrased...

    It seems like a lot of people knew, assisted, and/or otherwise benefited from Lance's PED wins. Now that Lance has been thrown under the bus they are all walking away like they never even knew the...

    Yes, you'll get there.

    I remember watching in horror, with my own eyes, a father and his son following on his little bike with training wheels as they dropped us on the Santa Fe trail because we...

    Since you are new to cycling I'd say don't sweat it at this point. Really. Just go out and ride as much as you can. It takes a while to build the strength and stamina to cycle up and down hills, and...

    I bought two of these bikes for my boys for Christmas, a 54 and a 56. They are incredible value for the money. My kids are in love with their bikes. Totally worth it.

    Thanks!

    It's a long shot, but so far I have it down on my bucket list. Definitely an "A" ride for me in terms of endurance if I do decide to make it. I learned about the ride through another...
