Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Congratulations Fuji! You've created the ugliest production bike ever. Seriously, that thing looks like a horrible conversion with expensive parts.

Wow, they really nailed it with this bike. I wouldn't buy one, but they definitely captured the current style well.

probably a fair retail price considering lugged frame + nice components + nobody pays retail anyway.
but it takes all the fun out of building a conversion yourself.

Is that MSRP? Even if it's not, $1400 may not be bad at all, depending on what you're getting component-wise . I bet lots of people spend at least that much or more putting together similar bikes.

This is the second 2008 bike I've seen now that comes stock with a Brooks.

Good on Fuji. Taking all the guess work out of uglying up your bike. Now, if they could only get a non-matching shade of gold for the rims, it'd be perfect.

Seems a bit pricey but I don't know part prices...it's pretty cool looking.

I like the fact it's lugged.

It can't be for real. I mean, the front wheel isn't even radially spoked.
