Fuji Opus III - New Photo session

I've been wanting to take better pics of this for quite awhile now. This month I've been riding a different bike each day. Part of that involves cleaning each bike and such. So, while the Opus is looking pretty good again I snapped some more shots of it. Just thought I'd share them as I feel this is my most beautiful bike.




My best looking bike by far!



This decal has held up well.



Nice



Nice sweeping fork



More Goodness



Those crank arms, wow!



Trying to capture the paint. It sparkles so amazingly while out on the road.



Love the crown of this fork!



Hmm, one of these days I need to replace this.



I think this seatpost is beautiful too.

Lovely Pearl Stem



Nice bars



My new (almost matching) saddle bag.



Nice place for the hands to play for many, many miles



The levers have held up very well.



Brakes look great but on the last mountain descent I realized the original pads suck, LOL!



That's a nice front end, shiny!



Superbe Pro jewelry



More bling.

Very nearly unbelievably stunning.

That bicycle deserves to not have a bent empty reflector mount hanging lopsided off the headset.

Beautiful bike, but that headset reflector bracket needs to go--get a spacer in there instead!

LOL, have one for it.

But I keep forgetting to take it off. Plus I also keep finding it useful to hang stuff from on longer rides. So while I hate it as an eyesore I love it as a mount for stuff on a ride.

The opus and team framesets are some of the most underappreciated riders out there. Obviously the opus with superbe is, well, superb! Have put 1000s of miles on my 84 team, it just rolls and rolls and rolls! I doubt the team is even worth 200 these days, but I cannot think of a keeper that has delivered more miles for minimal fuss though my 88 trek 560 is right up there on flawless miles and underappreciated.
