Iím sure theyíve been seeing a good number of Fuji bikes since Performance has stopped servicing their former customers lol
It is great that you want to learn these things. I would suggest that you follow the Park Tool procedures for adjusting your bike's shifting; as mentioned cables settle into their housings and a few simple adjustments will often set things right. Remember, your bike does shift now, so it should only take very small adjustments (1/4 turn or less at a time) to get it shifting optimally.
Their site also has a wealth of other bike maintenance and adjustment information and it would be worth your time to have a look. Good luck.
