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

There is a difference in feel between 2000 and fuji but nothing very significant. The frames weight about the same. Fuji has full carbon fork, but it is not a problem to get one for 2000....


Looking at Fuji i think ii is overloaded with stickers. I think I will use the advise to move Mavics to yellow and Am.Classics to Fuji... Yep..I'm a champion of moving things ...

May be sell them both and buy CAAD10?

Justfitme - I like the Bianchi. With a few changes, it'd be hot in my book. Black tires with gumwalls and different bar tape, and it would be a real looker IMO.

If it came time to let two go, I'd ditch the two C'dales and keep the Bianchi and Fuji.

Guys,

I'm trying to collect parts for my build this spring.

I am trying to get a matching color headshet and italian bottom bracket, preferably gray (match SRAM Force) and compatible with GXP.
Unfortunately, Chris King doesn't make a Gray headset (Pewter is comes out more purple) and SRAM's italian BB is a gold-silver color.

any ideas?

Mavics look good on the yellow CAAD, but they look really good on the FUJI as well. Love those wheels.

The bianchi looks fantastic. The white really pops and this is one of the rare occurances were i approve of colored tires. Hot.

the cannondale isn't a huge change, but I still like it better.

Looks pretty damn hot as it sits, though.

Going to get new cables for my S-works - help me pick a color. Not really wanting black, but I have a terrible eye for getting a nice color. Looking at jagwire set

Here's my bike

Looks like there are blue highlights on the frame so I'd go with SID Blue - Either that or white.

Nice bike, btw!

Plenty of both black and white already on that bike. I vote for blue, also.
