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

All bicycles Rich Cohen owner, and a expert mechanic sold me my 2 nd fuji. He built my Fuji Absolute 1.0 and customized it to me. His shop is amazing. He knows bikes idide and out. I love this bike! I loved first onehebuilt, the Fuji Nevada 2.0 which he is consigning now for me. Fuji absolute 1.0 is the most impressive bicycle I have ever ridden.
Bought this model because it seemed a good value and was a closeout at my LBS. Fuji bikes are a good value but they mix good components with some cheap ones. Basically been happy with it but it does have some weaknesses - the rims are low grade and I've had two broken spokes this summer (never had that happen in 25 years of biking); the paint is very easily marked/scratched; the frame seems just OK. The Shimano 105 is great and shifts very smoothly; the brakes seem good; I really like the carbon fork - it smooths out the road nicely; this bike handles really snappy.
I upgraded to a suspension seat post and a better saddle; added bar ends and upgraded tires to Continentals for gravel trail riding. Overall it has been a nice upgrade from my previous Treks; biggest plus is the Shimano 105 and the carbon fork.

Hi, I am trying to get a new rear wheel for my Redline Conquest with disc brakes (the frame takes a 130mm rear hub). I have been emailing a fella on Craigslist that is selling some disc specific wheels from his 2010 Fuji Absolute 1.0, but he does not know whether they were set up for 130 or 135. I ... Read More »
