Hot r Not

Notices
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

Make them fix (or replace) that chain. If you accidently shift to big/big, looks like the derailler could snap off.

its a medium size 54cm tt, so its reasonably stiff for what it is, i don't notice any really flexibility, although the frame has a weight limit of 175 lbs so it wouldn't suit a larger rider

I believe it is because the angle of the photo. Bar ends appear to be pointed at brake caliper and photo from the front makes the bars look level to me.

Hot or Not

I can't fault this bike at all...it even has a nice bit of color so it isn't exactly like every black on black with some white on it bike out there. good job.

In 2013 Fuji did away with the integrated seat posts. Now all of the SST frames have an aero post with a clamp.

Thank you sir!, Thats the plan, I debadged the wheels until I can get a good light set, and the crank will come when I decide what groupset I will go with.

The fujis very Hot! In person, it's even hotter. That color scheme makes it very difficult to convey the hotness in 2D, though.

Yes in person it looks much better. In these photos you really cant see the weave and it actually looks more black than it really is in person. It is actually a very natural grayish carbon look. Thanks for the compliments guys.

If it's Microtex (or any other synthetic leather-like material) it stays clean and just wears in nicely.

Yeah, I know that the photo is non-drive side, but with trailers it's all about the 'hitch side'. ;-)
Also, no one on the planet (that I am aware of) makes 20" cream colored tires. Dammit!
