fuji roubaix, $120

Hi.

Today I saw a bicycle, fuji roubaix, 105 group, $130 (include tax). It is my size, it is a steel frame.

Is it a good price to get?

Thanks.

'87-'91
Roubaix

I assume this vintage, then, someone has to hunt down the specs per the catalogs. I'm sure it's decent.

1987 looks good, the following years are probably similar.

Assuming it is vintage.

I think there are some modern Fuji Roubaixs I have seen, in the 2000s.

That '87 has the 105 groupset. '88 too. See if the colors match up.

If everything is in good working order $130 is a good price fro a bike with a decent quality lugged steel frame set and 105 components. Could be a very good deal depending on actual condition most of the pawn shop bikes I have seen are usually a bit rough and are being sold pretty much as is.

Congrats on your purchase. Sounds like a nice bike.

There is at least one thread in BF on the topic of Fuji Valite tubing. A quick search should get you an answer.

Valite Si45 was just rebadged Ishiwata EXO tubing. EXO was Ishiwata's quad butted chromoly tubing.

Fuji(and other brands both then and now) liked to name the tubing to make it seem proprietary or exclusive. It also helped keep people in the dark and unable to compare apples to apples when looking at other tubing.
