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

2007 Fuji Roubaix Pro

I've been hitting all the bike shops looking at what they have to offer in the ~$1000 price range. A performance bike store just opened in my area and they have 2007 Roubiax Pros for $1049. I have a $25 off coupon and they are offering 25% back this weekend for team members. I did a forum search on this model, but most of the results described the bike when it was a 853 steel frame not the current aluminum with carbon seat stays setup.

Is anyone on the forum riding one of these and if so can you give me some feedback? Seems like an awful good deal for a aluminum/carbon frame with 105 components, especially considering the 25% back for future upgrades (wheels)......

Thanks

It does sound like a great deal. I ride the ol' 2003 superlight which uses a similar aluminum and it's a nice ride.

I have one of those.
Rides pretty nice, decent component mix, and mine was like $999.
I put some Crank Brothers Candy C pedals on it, but I'm not sure I like them so much.
Maybe I'll go back to Looks.

But the bike is definitely a good deal. I think , for the price, you can't go wrong with one.
Go get it!

I ride a 2003 Fuji Roubaix (105 group). Similar to what you are looking at except for 2007 both the Roubaix and Pro use the Altair 2 frame w. carbon stays. The older Roubaix Pro was a 853 frame.

I got mine with 40 miles on it (mint++) for $400.

Rides like a dream.
I put the Keo Classics and Pro Race 2 tires on.

It's a decent bike for the money, I was tempted by a closeout one recently.

I became the proud owner of a Fuji Roubaix Pro last Friday.

130 miles later, no complaints!

Ultrega and 105 for a 1000 bucks. What a deal. I love the bike, after 100 miles this weekend. I did replace the stock saddle with a Fizik Arione, and I really dont care for the wheels (Alex ALX-200). But I figure if they hold up, they can be good training wheels, and I will use my Krisyrium's for racing.

And after seven years, I almost entered my first race. The new bike, and having lost 40 pounds since mid March was great incentive, but I really didnt think I was ready to tackle that nasty hill for 20 laps, or 2 laps, however long I was in the race

dtipton, I have a 2005 Fuji Roubaix Pro, with the 9 speed 105 and mostly the same spec as the new 07's. I love it anc couldnt ask for more, i sell a ton of them for Performance bike too, theyre great. And the 07's have the external bottom bracket elita cranks and the newer 105 10 speed stuff (which is alot nicer shifting thatn 9 speed 105). IMO its a great value for the money

let me know if you have any other questions
-John

Which race?

Just enter one. You'll be surprised how long you can hold on once you lay down some cash!

I will be going down to Waynesville for the team Dayton Crit, racing the Masters 45+

I like this bike, but I have no luck finding a 56cm or 58cm (which I also am in doubt of). Anyone knows where I can get it? Or any other alternatives? I was thinking a used 2007 Bianchi Nirone with similar build. O yeah, I'm a noob. Thanks!!!

I bought this bike in February and believe it was a great bargain. I paid $999 when just a couple of months prior the LBS was selling it for $1300. I had mind almost made up when I went to the LBS to buy a Felt F75 that was on sale also but just could not get the fit right and I just thought the yellow and black Fuji looked fast just sitting there. I've been very satisfied with it. I wondered about the wheel set also but when I took it in this month for the initial adjustment I asked the store owner about upgrading the wheelset and he said for recreational riding they were very good and that they could easily be rebuilt in the future if need be. The only thing I have upgraded are the brakes, I changed them out for a set of Ultegra's.

The yellow and black is really something. I can't tell. It's not as mean as the red/black or all black, but it's something IMO. Anyway, I have been hunting one of these around the internet. I found a $999 deal in that's also willing to ship to my place, but it doesn't have my size. I'm 5'11.x, 6' with shoes. Will 54cm fit?

I wouldn't buy it with trying the fit first. I'm 5' 10" and my Fuji is a 56cm. The Felt they were trying to get to fit me was a 54cm and it just did not work.
