Comments about FUJI 2009 Fuji Roubaix Pro Road Bike:

Let me start off by saying that I do like this bike, and that I typical ride about 100 miles per week.

1) The wheelset isn't great and very heavy at ~1900g. If it's in your budget it should be the first thing you upgrade. I hated the giant reflectors that just clinged and clanged every time I hit a bump too; 2) The F/R derailleurs work quite well. No need for upgrades there; 3) I find the Tektro front brake pivots despite how tight I make them. It's probably time for a shop visit to fix them for good. It's no fun finding out that you've been riding 20 miles with a brake pad riding the rim! It's not a knock on Tektro, however. The brakes work great (maybe a bit too squeeky) but they've gotten me out of more than one potential catastrophe. After you wear out the stock pads put some high quality pads on there and they'll be fine; 4) Handlebars and grips are good. After 3 months of 5-6 days a week of riding, the tape is starting to come off the cork wrap but that's an easy fix! 5) Bike is very light which initially made me cautious about it's handling abilities. Fear not! This bike, even on stock rims\tires, handles excellently. It's very well-balanced and the carbon fork and seat stays allow for a relatively smooth ride.

Like any bike, a tweak here and there and this went from a good bike to a great bike. My local PB was excellent (North Wales, PA). They answered all my questions and I couldn't be happier with the experience. I will definitely continue to shop PB.

Comments about FUJI 2009 Fuji Roubaix Pro Road Bike:

As a daily commuter, I upgraded to this bike from a Gary Fisher Uptopia hybrid. This bike was a great choice. In 4 months I have logged over 2,000 miles and I have zero complaints about the bike. It is fast, nimble, and the components are good for the price. Ride the tires and wheels for a few months and then upgrade. The geometry is good for many purposes; commuting in the city, century rides, and casual 50-mile rides in the country. I love my Fugi Roubaix Pro.

Comments about FUJI 2009 Fuji Roubaix Pro Road Bike:

Got this on sale from my local PB branch. I'm very happy with it. I was going back and forth between the Trek 2.1 and the Schwinn Peloton with my budget of within 1,200. This Fuji Roubaix came as a dark horse. Great components, ultegra rear dereuller and 105 front, cassette and break levers. Carbon, fork, seat and chain stays. I'm 5'7" and got size 54. It fit well and does not strain my back. Its responsive and stiff, fits my need as a weekend rider.

Only negative was the sales clerk screwed up the promo code on my 0% financing which i discovered after my first bill, but the branch manager fixed it.
