Strengths:    Components alone worth more than price of complete bike! Frame is quite nice, has "cross" geometry, very relaxing to ride. Really nice wheels, dishless rear wheel, tensioned to 120 Kgf from the factory! Colorado Cyclist deserves credit for building such nice wheels, best "factory" wheels I've ever seen.

Weaknesses:    Came equiped with 39/53 chainrings w/12-25 cassette, perhaps a little big for some offroad. Wish it had fender eyelets, rack braze-ons, and third water bottle mount for commuter/touring use. Needed a little brake adjustment after assembling (small quibble)

Bottom Line:   
This was a special offer from Colorado Cyclist, upgraded from standard Fuji Cross configuration to mostly Ultegra components. Nice blue/black paint. 853 frame, steel fork (never spec'd with aluminum fork, wonder how other guy ended up with aluminum fork?)

Strengths:    Light comfortable frame setup

Weaknesses:    Front Fork. Useless.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike as a croos trainer/winter commuting bike. The only complaint I have is the front alluminum fork. Get rid of it. VERY DANGEROUSE. Too light and shimmies with any applied pressure to the front break. You go all over the road. Go with a steel fork. The added 1/2 lb is worth feeling safe on the raod.
