Fuji Silhouette 1.7 Disc Women's Flat Bar Road Bike -- 2018
Are you ready for a relaxing weekend ride? Easily take a short jaunt to a coffee shop or bookstore with the Fuji Silhouette 1.7 Disc women's road bike. It was created to handle rides both big and small, features great styling, Fuji's proprietary lightweight aluminum frame, a Shimano 27-speed drivetrain, and a women's specific geometry.
The Silhouette's top tube is compact and for very good reasons. While benefits of a compact frame are many, there are a few key bonuses, like the shorter distance to the handlebar when seated, which alleviates neck, back and wrist strain, while increasing your ability to handle the bike with confidence. The shorter seat tube means greater standover height, so when you pull up to a stop sign you can easily step off the bike with plenty of safe clearance between you and the bike. Also, a shorter top tube means you'll be riding more upright. That means you'll get a greater view of the road ahead and any objects around your bike while your ride. The frame and fork are made out of lightweight aluminum, which reduces the bike's weight and helps to smooth out the vibration from the road.
The Silhouette 1.7 features easy to use components, like a set of EZ Fire shifters. Simply push or click them and the drivetrain responds instantaneously. The Tektro mechanical disc brakes engage on a set of rotors instead of the wheel rim, preserving the life of your wheels and increasing the bike's stopping power. The Silhouette is outfitted with a pair of Vera Corsa wheels and wide, comfortable tires with burly Phalanx puncture resistance. All of these features rolled up into one bike makes it easy to see why the Silhouette is so popular on weekend rides.
