I picked up my 2013 Fuji Absolute 2.1 today! Still stock components with a few additions (pump, saddlebag).





Cheers!

Thanks Dude, I thought it looked pretty classy as well. They made a lot of nice bikes before they became a walmart brand.

God damn, I just love looking at all these bikes.

I think that bikes and cats have a lot in common, in that I have never seen a bike or cat that I didn't like the look of.

How do you keep the chain on the chain ring? No issues?

Thanks for the info I often think about going single at the front, but worry about loosing the chain.

Take a look at the new wide/narrow chainrings that allow you to run a single ring without rollers or pie plates up front.

Well let me test you on that...lots of folks here don't like the mass merchant bikes, but I was glad to see the 90% support of the guy from MI who bought his 1st bike from Wally World. I'm still pleased with my Schwinn Trailway from Target. I've added a rack since the last update and it's still holding up well except this past w/e on the way to bike on a MUP my daughters car rack dropped down, dragging the pavement and the front tire & some of the aluminum rim got chewed up. I've been riding it a lot and I'm still happy with it though. I'm fully prepared to say you guys were right when I have major component failure, but so far so good. I enjoy my restored Fuji road bike too and ride it some, but the more upright hybrid set-up is just more comfortable. I'll probably want a Absolute when I wear out the Trailway.

Heh, I love racks on bikes and your shade of blue is gorgeous.

Also there is something nifty about getting heaps of usage out of a bike that doesn't cost the world, that anyone could have.
