I can't say that this is fully Fuji's fault but I've had trouble with my bike. The bottom bracket loosened after only 180 miles of use and the entire crankset almost fell off while I was out on the trails. This was probably due to the fact that the bike was not "spec-ed" by the shop, rather than Fuji's fault. (maybe???) I can back this up by noting that after this happened, I went around the bike with my torque wrench and found many bolts loose. One bolt on the pinch clamp of the steer tube was loose enough to turn with my fingers! YIKES!! I could have been killed or badly injured on this bike!! WARNING and note to myself - have a professional mechanic go over a new bike or spec it yourself before you ride!! Don't expect it to be spec-ed out when you get it!!
OK, onto the bike issues.
I've been riding hard-tails for years but this is my first full suspension bike. Being that is the case, I cannot be too critical on the performance as I have little to compare with this bike. What I can say is, however, is that the rear hub sucks! It must have four or five points of engagement. (being sarcastic here) Seriously though, I can rotate the crank about 30 degrees or more before I reach another point of engagement. If I were to spend more $$$$ to fix this, I might as well have jumped up to a better class of bike.
Having a RockShox Judy fork on it, one might expect to have no problems for at least the first year of use. I used this bike for no more than two months and rode it maybe 100 miles before the fork started leaking oil like a stuck pig! I don't do jumps or stupid riding so this wasn't abuse that caused this. The fork has no scratches on the stanchions or anything else that could explain the leaking. The fork is either defective or maybe the Performance version of Fuji bikes have RockShox seconds on them. ???
Overall, this is a great entry level mountain bike (provided the fork isn't defective) but I'm glad I don't have more than $600 into it. I'm sure it will be sold soon and I'll be onto a better bike. This experience has definitely shunned me from ever looking at any Fuji bikes again.
