Calling all Fuji Owners

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I got rear-ended by a truck on my Del Rey. The bike held up amazingly well actually, but the bike shop pronounced it unrepairable. The front chainrings are bent, as is a crank. They indicate bent forks, but it must be slight - I don't see it. Twas one of the lighter models at the time. I may try to rebuild it later yet. Replaced it with a Trek 1500 (did look at the Fuji Roubaix, but our Fuji dealer is a smuck). Bought my bride a Fuji Newest 3.0 this Spring, so at least we still one.

Mine, Fuji Team was bought Feb. 2006, a 2005 model team (same as team pro but triple). Ultegra FD, RD, Brifters, chain, casette, Truaviv Rouleur BB and crank, WH-R550 wheels. Paid $995 in Dallas. Got 2500 GREAT miles on it, NO problems. I wanna buy the carbon version!!

I think Fuji is the BEST kept secret in cycling today, now the cat is out of the bag!!

So why are we talkin bout it!!

I've got an 05 Fuji newest that I bought for 700 bucks. I assume this is considered low end, but its the only bike I have ever rode. For me it is a great bike, all 23 pounds. One day, I'll break down and try one of those ultralight hot rods, but for now ignorance is bliss.

I don't consider it low-end. I have a two friends that ride at a very high level and they both ride the Newest 1.0. IMO, as long as you have at least Tiagra and above components, you have a good bike.

I have an '05 Fuji Track Pro. It is Aluminum + Carbon fork. Whoever owned it before I did put a road bike crank on it, so I need a new crank. Other than that, no problems.

I have a Fuji Team SL and and Fuji Team LE. I love both bikes.

Because I just started doing triathlons, I recently tranferred of my Ultegra components of the Team SL over to a new Litespeed Tri bike. Therefore, I am going to sell my Fuji Team SL frame. The frame is incredibly light and makes a great climbing bike.

If anyone is interested, the frame is silver, size 54.

My third bike is a Fuji Tourer. For touring it's been a good ride. It has Shimano Tiagara with V style brakes.

New guy here... the LBS I go to has a few Fuji newest 2.0's and they look sweet to my newb eye's... well all the bikes do but the Fuji's have sexier price tags
Different bike shops will have different components on new bikes? Or a new Fuji is a new Fuji no matter where you go? I have no clue. I have an old Nishiki that I paid $20 for and it serves well but after dumping it a few weeks ago I realized I should just use it as a back up and treat myself to something newer...

All fuji's sold by a reputable dealer should have the components that are spec'd on the website... The prices are sweet...

How is the stiffness and power transfer? I have a chance to get a Roubaix LTD through my team, but I haven't been able to ride one yet. My Specialized feels like pedaling into mud, though other Al frames I've ridden have been like dancing forward with each pedal stroke (BMC). Your opinion?

Greetings!

I picked up a 2003 Fuji 'World' Reynolds 853 naked frame at a local swap meet last winter and built it up with a mix of Dura-Ace and Ultegra components. The 'World' model was designed more for touring, and has rather stout seat and chain stays. Slapped in a Cane Creek S-6 headset and an all carbon fork and have been riding it all season long. I'm a big fan of Reynolds steel and have 6 different frames that I've built up. Since I shelved restoring and racing vintage sports cars a few years back, I've taken to collecting, building and riding road bikes as my hobby/passion. Now, how many more can I tuck into the garage...lol.
