Strengths:    For the price you get a proper frame and very well known brand.

Weaknesses:    I literally owned a Giant Hybrid for over 20 years, and recently "upgraded" to the Fuji. Had it less than six months and my rims were so jacked it was unridable. Returned to the local bike shop were I bought it, a month later they couldn't find the cause of my spokes poking through the rim. Got it back, rode for a few weeks. Flat fire no biggie, replaced the tire. Rode for 14 miles, BAM flat fire again and the rim is shot, AGAIN!

Stay away,

Bottom Line:   
Wouldn't recommend this bike, unless your a very very casual rider.

Strengths:    The price is below $500.
It's a known, probably, high-end brand

Weaknesses:    All of the components

Bottom Line:   
I got a 2013 absolute 2.3
I have to say I'm disappointed.
Yes, the price is low, but I bought a fuji thinking that I was getting a trusted brand so I didn't do research about the components before buying it. I thought how bad a fuji can be?
The components are bad. I never thought fuji would use such a low quality equipment for their bikes AND I never thought shimano would make such crappy products.

Strengths:    Truvativ Isoflow crank, Carbon fork, disc brakes, good frame

Weaknesses:    Rims are weak, tires are passable, but you replace those anyway.

Bottom Line:   
This is the third Fuji I've owned, and I'm quite impressed with each one. I was looking for a flat bar road bike, and the Absolute was on my short list. I found a 2010 Absolute 2.0 in a pawn shop for $350, and snatched it up. The bike was like new, and still had the original tires, which I swapped for Ritchey SpeedMax cross tires. The ride improved dramatically. The 2010 models had Tektro mechanical disc brakes, which seem to work well, and a Truvativ crank. The bike is fast, and handles the road and loose gravel trails well. It's comfortable to ride, too. With the adjustable stem on the handlebars, you can get it tuned to your riding style. I'm going to upgrade the wheelset soon, and with that, I really won't have any faults with this bike.
