    i absolutely love the decals on the frame, and also your choice of sidewall color!

    looks sharp.

    A beaut

    Appearance-wise, the Fuji is one of the best looking frames out there (IMHO). You've done a terrrific job with the build. How does it ride?

    Thank you, It rides very well. I'm coming off a Scattante Easton Ultralite frame so this really does ride like a (1952) Rolls in comparison. What was immediately noticeable was the way the carbon mutes any bad surfaces - I'm not having to lift my arse in anticipation any more. Additionally I feel as if I am transforming power much more effectively into forward motion (although of course this could easily be a placebo effect)!

    I'm still dialling in the fit. I've flip-flopped from a non-setback to setback and now back to non-setback post and I think I finally have my a** where it should be over the pedals. It still leaves me about 8mm short on the overall reach and 5mm lower (compared to my other bike) at the bars which I'm finding surprisingly hard to adjust to.

    Hey Rex -

    Nice ride...you copycat! Now that you've dropped the hammer on the Fuji, I'm no longer the only person I know who rides a Fuji carbon bike. ;)

    Have you decided on which seatpost to use yet -- setback or no?

    I think you're gonna love that bike. I absolutely love mine and have no regrets on the purchase. Good luck getting the ride dialed in.

    Thx...Doug
