Fuji Cross 2.0? (Mostly for riding on pavement)

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Fuji Cross 2.0? (Mostly for riding on pavement)

My bike of 15 years finally bit the dust and while I want to fix it, the wifey wants me to just get a new one. This is mostly for staying on pavement and chasing after my kid (6 yr old) on his bike.

So I obliged and looked around and found a:

Fuji Cross 2.0 LE Cyclocross Bike - 2015 Performance Exclusive

I can't post links (doh!) so if you google it and the first link to Performance Bike is it. Clearance at $749. Currently they also have a 30% back in store credit deal. So $225 in store credit back.

How do you guys feel about this deal? It's a bit rough trying to find S and XS size bikes locally.

Did you ride it? I have ridden one, and I liked how nimble and responsive it was. I don't think I'll ride anything smaller than 32mm again, so I would find that a good road and mixed terrain bike.

I did ride it and it felt pretty good. Although, coming from a mountain bike, the ergonomics felt a little odd. In general, i liked it. Very light, very responsive.

I just bought a Fuji Tread 1.0 and really like it. Very similar to the Cross, but more road-oriented.

I just picked up a 2018 Fuji Cross 1.7 and I'm pretty happy with it so far. This was an addition to a nice carbon race bike I typically ride, so it does feel a little heavy to me (just over 20 lbs) but with 32c Panaracer Gravel King tires on, it is a blast to ride on road or on dirt. It feels quick enough for day-to-day commuting on pavement but beefy enough to handle gravel and trails.

Bang-for-your-buck I don't think you can beat the Fuji stuff, especially with an added sale/discount.

Although I agree with fixing a bike that's only 15 years old, never argue with a wife who says you should buy a new bike. Whatever the old one is, you can tell her that is isn't worth enough to trade or sell, so you may as well keep it as a backup/beater, then fix it up as time and budget allow.

I love my fuji cross bike! (4.0 LE). I swapped my knobbies for gator backs but went back to knobbies. I can do road dirt gravel and i live by a lot of parks and grassy areas. I did 20 miles last weekend and she rode like a champ. Ive never been one to just do road bikes but not to the other extreme i don't do those crazy trial jumps just normal in-between. Get the bike you won't regret it!

I bought the bike, it's pretty fantastic. Compared to my old aluminum frame mountain bike, this thing weights like a feather.

thanks for all the input!

Unless you go bikes direct, which has basically the same bike with much higher grade components.. Hard to test ride those though (well, they ride just like the Fuji, but with better components).
