    Fuji Altamira

    I live in WA and my local Performance dealers do not carry the Altamira. I just love the look of this frameset. Does anyone know how much it costs and if it can be mail ordered?

    I'm sure you can order the Fuji Altamira from any Fuji dealer in the U.S.. I'm looking at the 2012 Fuji Altamira Team Replica as my 2nd bike.

    i know, i am looking at the team replica myself....although debating whether to make the financial jump from the c4 carbon replica/2.0 with ultegra to d6 carbon LTD/1.0 with dura ace.

    The frameset pictured is the same as the 1.0/LTD, with high end d6 carbon. My friend had a 3.0 Altamira, and cracked the chainstay (he's a powerhouse sprinter).. Fuji sent him a replacement frame, which turned out to be the exact one pictured above: d6 carbon matte black, aka: "murdered out"....looks incredible in person.

    He said that it is a huge jump over the c4 carbon and rides velvety smooth

    $2949 for the altamira d6 carbon frameset.....(team replica altamira -complete bike- w/ c4 carbon : $2899)

    both bikes can be found at fujibikes . com my profile here won't let me post links yet

    The owner of my LBS email yesterday, saying the 2012 Fuji Altimira Team Replica is available. I bought the bike and should get it by the end of the week.

    I'm currently riding the team replica and I love it! I rode it at dealercamp in Park City UT and wasn't super impressed but as I have spent more time on it I have really loved it. I think you would be happy with the replica.
    The black on black frameset is also super awesome. I'm getting a SL black on black tomorrow into the shop but I've seen the Altamira black on black and it's sweet too.

    Beautiful bike--
    -What size is your bike and what is your saddle height from center of bb to top of saddle?
    -How much did you pay for it?
    -Weight?
    -Ride impressions?

    Hi Altamira47,

    Actually I was asking AnthonyL88 since he showed a photo of his bike just previous to my comment. But since you chimed in, that's great to hear u love it. Do you have any photos of it posted here in this thread? Also when you measure the seat tube from center of bb to top of seat clamp is it really 47cm? That's such an odd number sizing for a seat tube length. Thanks!

    I've been loving it... A LOT.
    I did drop some money into it and put a different saddle/seat post combo and put Rotor Q rings on instead of the regular round rings. It's awesome though

    Great! So is the actual seat tube measured from center of bb to top of seat clamp really 47cm? Also how about showing some photos!?!

    1. Hit post reply
    2. You should see below the Message area, a bunch of icons. hit the icon that looks like a paper clip.
    3. Have you ever sent an email attaching photos or files? Same idea. Hit the button that says "Browse" by an empty field. You will see another screen that shows the files in your computer. Find your file with the photo. Double click it. The document name will appear next to the browse button.
    4. Hit the upload button. The screen will disappear.
    5. Then hit "submit reply" or if you want to preview your post hit "preview post."
    That should do it!

    One is a drive train pic including my Rotor Q rings with that dead sexy gold KMC chain.

    Then a full body shot of my beauty. One of the things I'm not crazy about is the green accents kind of fade. I think it looks awesome but that color green is my favorite so I'm also kind of sad that it faded.

    The last picture is my BB triangle. I'm crazy about my Geox team waterbottles (gift from the team after the Tour of Utah). My next purchase will be the Elite bottle cages the team uses. After that I'll buy the same bar tape the team uses (regular leather tape as opposed to cork tape) Hmmm I love my bike. I'm a very big fan of the Hutchinson tires.

    All in all I'm very pleased with the bike. There are a few things I am not a fan of. I wish some of the parts were a little higher level than they are. The team issue has a much nicer aluminum cockpit. Also, the seatpost and saddle combo. I guess I shouldn't be surprised by this since no bike ever comes with a decent saddle...

    awesome!

    Altamira47:

    Those are great photos of your bike which is supersweet--you might want to take a full side shot crankside facing us with the entire saddle showing. Is the green on the bike covered by a clearcoat? I can't imagine why it would be fading already--you couldn't have had it more than 6 months.

    I wanted to ask you about the Oval wheels--what model is that? I am not that familiar with that brand. How much did your crankset cost? I'm also a bit surprised that with a 47cm frame and Ultegra components, the bike weighs 18lbs--that's a bit heavy. Must be the wheels. I also have no idea how much the frame and fork weigh--wonder if its around a 1000g for the frame alone.

    Also what kind of saddle and seat post are you using. That looks a zero setback post. Keep the photos coming!

    I am saving for that bike--no prices I see online but my guess is that it's running about $3500 with full Ultegra--the Fuji website says that's a 105 cassette whch is a bummer.

    I will try to get the picture tomorrow. It is covered by the clearcoat, and I don't really know why it's fading. I'll try to get a picture of that too. It looks really cool how it fades, but again that lime green is my favorite so it made me sad. I've had it for a few months now.
    The bike comes with the Rotor crankset but it comes with round rings. I picked up the Rotor Q rings at Interbike for $100. I am not sure what retail is for a Rotor crank with Q rings though...
    The Oval wheelset is the Oval 330. The bike is a bit heavy and I do feel like that is due to the wheels mainly. I could try and get some weights for you, both Fuji's listed weight and also my real weight.
    I've been running a carbon RaceFace seatpost with a Selle Italia Flite saddle and I just switched to a Ritchey Streem Pro saddle.
    The MSRP on this bike is $2899 I believe, or something just below $3000.

    I don't know if you follow pro racing, but Team Geox is no more. Geox pulled out of sponsorship and it appears that a lot of the riders are leaving at the end of the year, like Cobo, Sastre and Menchov. The Team Edition bike will be no longer current in 2012.

    The bike size is a 47cm
    I paid $2450 tax included
    Bike weight is 17.20lbs
    Sorry, but I didn't get a chance to ride the bike yet, because I've been very busy. I'm planning on taking the bike out this Saturday or Sunday.

    Those are very nice pictures!! I'm planning on adding the Q ring, Fizik Kurve and probably changing the wheels too.

    What wheels would you choose? Mavic Ksyrium SL or HED Ardennes SL? I got the new Zipp 303 Firecrest Carbon clinchers for my Dogma 2.
