fuji doesn't let their products be sold online. Check out a performancebike store if you are close by. Buying the whole bike wouldn't be much more money and would be good for parts if things wear out or break

Fuji is actually a nameplate brand, the frames are made by the major Taiwanese factories.

The Fuji Track is basically the Windsor Hour, only more expensive (and with significantly more attractive branding).

I've been wanting to bring this up for a while but I keep forgetting. I've heard it at least a million times and repeated it several times, but I was thinking the other day that I've never heard just how it is that people know the fuji and the hour are the same frame. I hope it's true, because my next bike will probably be a BD bike (unless my fuji track lasts until i die), but where did this information come from?

There are about 8 fuji track bikes on ebay right now. I'd check with Performance they have sales all the time and I know for a fact that they are going to be offering a 10% to 20% discount in the next few months.

I was under the impression that it was the same exact frame with different paint and decals.

See the beauty of it is some shops figured there would be a HUGE rush for these bikes. And they bought them up like hot cakes. Now they are sitting on thousands of dollars worth of bikes that no one wants. So a few brave soles are breaking the rules and even selling these over the web. Find a nice lugged frame ans fork for 360.00. Hell for that price you can strip it and paint it any color you want.

i believe you are wrong unless my "fuji track" search is wrong, comes up with about 8 bikes, 7 of which are for in store pick in chicago illinois. i live in texas, thanks for looking though.

"fuji frame" does not come up with track bikes either.

I found this one on campus. A friend of mine sold it to me for $350. I've seen a few around since I got it though. Some on craigslist/ebay I'm sure... just keep your eyes peeled.

I don't know if the model year is important to you but most of the ones I've seen have been 2005/2006 versions for some reason...
