Strengths:    Nice comfortable ride and has rolls well on pavement. The bike performs well and would be great for a long trip. It also does well on unimproved surfaces. Nice shifters and great range on gears.

Weaknesses:    I replaced the peddles for something with more grip, I like to be able to stand up going up a hill and the stock peddles had no bite.

Bottom Line:   
I take a 10 mile ride every 2 days for fitness. I purchased this bike about a month ago as a replacement for my Schwinn Frontier. I had done a lot of upgrades to my frontier over time essentially trying to make it more like a Hybrid. I finally decided that I just wanted to get the bike that I wanted. I looked in every bike shop in Eugene Or. (there are a lot here) and checked out every bike like this. I found this bike on sale at a shop that was discontinuing selling Fuji so I got a good deal. The retail was $380 and I got it $61 off. I love this bike, it has all of the features that I was looking for. Unlike the previous review I like the seat, it isn't hugely fat but has a lot of cushion. If it were bigger I would have replaced it . I have a tall torso so I have a hard time getting a bike that fits properly this bike fits perfectly because it can be adjust to fit anyone.

Strengths:    Pedalling efficiency, solidity of construction, ability to handle multi-terrain surfaces, reliability, quietness and ease of operation.

Weaknesses:    Stock seat is not very comfortable. The bike is equipped with 700x35c tires which will produced a slight sideways slip when pebbles are encountered on otherwise flat surfaces. I think adding slightly wider tires (700x38c or 700x40c) would eliminate
this problem.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased this bike on 1/2/2004 as a replacement for a Schwinn Sierra which was stolen fom my garage and the price reflects a substantial discount for the previous year's floor model.The Supreme with 700c tires appears to be very solid and pedals much more efficiently than the Schwinn with 26" tires. Handles pavement, dirt, shallow gravel, light sand and mud very well.I replaced the OEM Fuji seat with a Viscount web-sprung saddle which is much more comfortable for light off road riding and added slightly wider ATB pedals to avoid occasional slip while wearing street shoes. Aside from occasional derailleur and brake adjustments, and the inevitable flat tire, the bike runs very quietly and handles small pothles and road imperfections well due to the suspension fork and seatpost. I would recommend the Supreme to those looking for a reliable, reasonably priced recreational bike which performs well on a variety of surfaces.
