    I got a silver 05 Team SL frame and 350 gram stock fork in great shape in December, built it up and have had it on the road since February. It is light stiff and fast and it climbs great. It is also smoother than I expected but certinly not a comfort machine. This is the first bike that I have owned where I am not being held back by the bike, only my own limitations. Couldn't be happier.

    Set up:
    Ultegra Derailleurs, shifters, brakes,10 speed 11-23 cassette and chain
    Shimano compact 50/34 crank
    Dura-Ace BB
    Easton Orion II wheels w Vittoria Rubino Pro tires
    Fuji carbon post
    Selle Italia SLR saddle
    Bontrager Race Lite stem
    Easton EA 70 bars

    Here's my 2006 56cm Fuji Team. 12/27 Ultegra 36/50 TruVativ, Easton EC70, Neuvation M28 Aero 2 wheelset (with ceramic bearings), Fizik Arione saddle (currently, I'm riding on a Terry Fly).

    It's not an expensive bike, but it's the nicest one I've ever owned. Rides like a dream compared to my old Aluminum Coppi San Remo.

    I'm an expecting Fuji owner. Getting an 07 Team this weekend I didn't think I had the money to go full carbon but found this at a good deal.

    I just bought a Fuji Newest 1.0 yesterday at a great price. Regularly $990, I got it for $679. It's a double up front so that will take some getting used to as this is my first real road bike. I have been riding a Schwinn Supersport on the road and for commuting but wanted a real road bike. I also have a Giant Boulder SE for the woods. First day on the bike I did a 30 mile ride.

    OK... I hate to repost so soon, but I replaced the saddle with one that I can actually ride on for more than 10mi: The Specialized Alias 155 in white. I also switched out the computer for a Garmin Edge 305. I love this bike! And the wheels are tough!

    Any ride reports on the fuji team united 06? I'm thinking of getting the CCR1. Can't get the Team cuz of the large Shimano on the side. I'd have to sell my Centaur group and buy a whole new groupset.

    The CCR1 is C4 carbon, low grade carbon, the Toyota United Team use C7 for the Team RC and Team Issue, and C10 for the FUji SL-1. They make the SL-1 in a Campy Record version, and the 2006 model Team RC and Team Issue are chorus and record. However you won't get the Toyota United paint scheme. This shop has a record bike: http://www.countrysidecycling.com/index.php?pr=Fuji

    Here is my 05 Fuji Team.

    Right now I'm running a SRAM Force 11-25 cassette and 1090R chain, a WCS Ritchey carbon 110 stem, Crank Bros Quadra pedals, and a Selle SMP Evolution saddle. I absolutely love the way this bike climbs; it climbs so well that I never need to use the smallest chainring, even on the steepest roads. I ordered a SRAM Red 53-39 crank with ceramic BB,175 arms, and matching front derailer that should be in soon; I can't wait! Ejprez, how do you like your RED?
    Will post a better pic when I bring it back out in the daylight. All I need now is for spring to return...

    Ah, thanks. Didn't know that. Not too familiar with the differences in carbon, since this is my first foray into this material. I'll check out the Team issue and Team RC. What are the differences between the two? I can't seem to spot the diff with the frames. Is it mostly the components?

    Well, I only got one ride on the Red so far, but what a ride. The shifting engagement is quicker, the brakes are definately stronger and better quality construction. The funny thing is on my frame is says Shimano, but I don't care, I wear nike's and addidas at the same time. Though I do use Dura ace pedals, which are even popular with all the campy guys I know. They love campy, but love DA pedals, weird isn't it.

    I had a Fuji Club back in the late 80's. I loved that bike, put tons of miles on it. A couple of LBS said not to buy a Fuji, but it was the least expensive(that fit my budget) and it was very light(I lived in a 3rd floor apartment - without an elevator). I would definitely buy a Fuji again.

    Yeah the Team Issue and Team RC are the same C7 frame just different components, and the Team and Team Pro are the same C4 frame just different components and a alloy steerer fork on the Team. I think the weight difference is about a quarter of a pound, 113 grams between the C4 and C7 and C10. I have the SL-1 but really like the look of the C7 frames, the big silver machined dropouts are nice.

    Seems to be that I can't place a special order on the Team Issue with the distributor here in my country since they don't know when they'll be shipping again. I'm left with the option for the Team United or I go look at other brands of frames. I would have really liked the Team issue though. I don't know how you do it ejprez, ignoring the large shimano on the side with your SRAM setup. Hehe. I think I might be a bit more anal when it comes to matching.

    I took the plunge and followed the inspiration of ejprez. I let Campy and Shimano make their peace on my Fuji Team Issue Thanks for all the advice and tips. I almost went for the CCR1 but decided to bump the budget up to the Team Issue. I haven't been able to ride it though as it rained on the day it was scheduled for its maiden voyage.

    How about an addition to this thread?!?!

    I decided a while back that my BMC Streetfire was really nice, but everytime I went out, I came back sore somewhere. It was not a fit issue per se, but more of an older body melded to stiff aluminum. Anyways, I started looking at other bikes that I could get and ran upon the deal at Performance for the 2008 carbon fujis.

    So, to make a long story short, I sold my BMC for $1500.00, bought a 2008 Fuji Team Carbon for $1500.00, got 10% for a promotional day ($150.00), plus an addition 10% on the original price in gear ($150.00). Plus, they gave me an additional 10% off for it being Ladies Night (my wife went and paid for it for an additional $150.00). SOOO, I ended up getting a 2008 Fuji Carbon with Ultegra (the shifters had already been upgraded when delivered) for $1200.00 plus tax, then bought the pedals and the Arione (both on closeout) with the addt'l gear money. Lastly, I got the Shimano RS20's new on Ebay, which also included a new pair of Vittoria Rubino Pro Slicks with tubes for $135.00.

    I took the last bit of cash I had and bought an FSA post, OS-115 stem and Wing Pro bar (not installed yet, and ended up spending exactly -$47.65 on the new bike, and also have a number of parts to put together a commuter.

    Sorry, long story.

    Here's the bike! I really like the ride so far after a few hundred miles.

    Oh, I've been in the film business for a while, but I just can't seem to get one in the can.

    O-kay, who'd like a banger in the mouth? Right, I forgot, here in the States, you call it a *sausage* in the mouth.

    I would say that is pretty darn nice for a student budget bike.
