    Look at the full stadiums... there's your answer. The same holds true for most major sports.

    Do you think "enhancing substances" use started in the 90's? Do some research.

    Don't forget Mark McGwire, the BIG juicer, who simply got away with saying "I'm not here to talk about the past..." and was able to stick around baseball as a coach for the Cardinals after a...

    I thought mine is the 2014 model, but it seems it's been discontinued. It's the all red version and came with 11spd and 105 shifters and derailleurs. I'm running Ultegra 11spd cassettes on my wheel...

    Late last year I posted that I was thinking about buying a road bike, and some of the responses were along the lines that the bike wouldn't make as much of a difference as the engine. Looking back...

    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.

    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.

    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
