    This is my first road bike so I dont know enough to say I am a fan, but I have had the bike for a week now and have loved riding it. The seat is awful but I have another one on order. The bar tape also made the bars feel to small so I had it changed to the Lizard skin DSP which looks awesome and is thicker. Ive decided to give clipless pedals a go and ordered some Shimano Ultegra pedals. So pray for me.

    I did a lot of research on which bike would be best for me sticking to my 1500 budget. Went to a few different stores and tested out a Giant Defy, Kestral Legend Ultegra, Specialized Allez, and a Trek bike I cant remember the name of. I loved the Giant defy but when I went back the next day to get the bike the sales people completely ignored me for like 20 minutes so I walked out. Ended up walking into a performance bikes and tested out a couple bikes and fell in love with this fuji Altamira 1.3 after riding it. The sales guy told me it might be a little aggressive for my first bike but I told him I felt most comfortable on it. So he had the mechanic flip the stem so I would sit a little more upright and that was even nicer. Anyway went to the counter to purchase what I thought was a $1500 bike and turned out to be 1200 bucks, because they were having a sell to clear out all of their 2016 bikes. On top of that fantastic suprise he told me if I joined the buyers club for 30 bucks I would get 20% of the purchase back in store credit. So I was all over that. Went back the next day and used the credit to buy a helmet, water bottle, bottle cages, and catzeye computer.

    So far I have ridden this bike everyday since I have gotten it and the only thing causing me discomfort is the saddle which will soon be remedied by the one I have on order. Did Performance bikes beginners no drop ride which they host every Saturday. Its only about 15 miles but loved the ride and meeting new people

    Hi all. I have a 2014 Fuji Altamira that I was thinking about switching to either 25 or 28 mm wheels. It came stock with 23's. Has anyone upgraded to wider wheels or put wider tires on the 23mm rims that came with the bike?

    I have run 28s on my 2012 Altamira, no problem. They were also on wider wheels.

    hmm, I have 25mm Schwalbe One and they fit nicely, 2012 Altamira. I also had a set of Michelin Pro 4 Endurance in 25mm and they fit, however the rear wheel had to be put on deflated otherwise it would not fit past the brakes. The Michelin 25mm was pretty close to the frame in front, at the top. I was thinking 28mm would not fit, although never tried.

    I have 25mm Michelin Pro 4 Service Course tires on a set of Zipp 303 wheels on my 2014 Altamira. No problems. Had a set of 25mm Vitoria Corsa G+ on earlier in the year with no problem.

    This is good to know. Do you think the same applies to the 2001 frame? I am about to pull the trigger.
