Strengths:    650cc wheels allowed me to swap in a higher rise stem, to save my back, and not lose too much resistance with my higher profile. Stiff, light, and responsive.

Weaknesses:    Fuji seat is painful. Stock tires as thin as dunny paper. One quick brake clutch in traffic, and I was down to the tubes!

Bottom Line:   
Went in to buy a singlespeed, and the 650 cc Aloha looked so cute, I bought it. The price was cute, too! Clearance. Although I was into MtBing, I road this around a little, and bam, 2 years later I'm winning my age group in Tri's. Competitors with big bux bikes demand to know how I can possibly beat them!

Strengths:    Acceleration - light and fast 650cc wheels
Comfy Aerobars - these are great for getting down low and hammering away.
Shimano 105 Components - good quality for the price

Weaknesses:    Seat is not comfortable for long rides
Tires / tubes only available at bike stores because of the 650cc wheels

Bottom Line:   
I needed a good bike without spending my kids inheretence. I feel like I got great value for my money. Its fast and comfortable for rides under 2 hours. I love it best on shorter or hilly courses (stiff frame and smaller wheels). For the price it was great value for money. I don't think I'll be upgrading for quite a few years.

Strengths:    PRICE (same parts (almost)) with out the name, fork and
out of the box put together.

Weaknesses:    was missing a special washer for the areo
bars, but I called Fugi and not one
problem. They were great!!!! Thumbs up
to them. I talked to someone right when
the phone was picked up, unlike other
companies. Wish it came with pedals, but
no problem. I needed to put pedals with
float on it anyways.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great for an entry level triathlete. I have out rode some
guys on 700cc wheels. Its light, its fast and damn cheap. It will run
with the big dogs and leave them pissed off at the finish line. Long
rides and short ones are great. Carbon fork is great. Hey, I live in
Idaho...our roads are not "rider friendly" compared to other regions.
Aero bars took some getting use to, but I use less energy riding
by myself or in a pace line. Doesn't matter, either sucking tire or
breaking wind. I stay the same.
