Strengths:    good mix of parts
not bad stock wheels

Weaknesses:    heavy
weak crank set

Bottom Line:   
i upgraded from a low end allez to a somewhat higher end fuji, i have put 1500+ km on this bike now, and i will put atleast another 3000 in before this season is over, the bike bike is very stiff, and the frame is a bit bulky and heavy, even for low end alu its heavy, but the parts on this bike more then make up for it, though i bent the crank badly, and now have all sorts of shifting issues.

Strengths:    Excellent Value for the price point. Light frame (bike weight is 23-24 lbs), nice components, especially the shifters and rear derailleur. Carbon fork. The somewhat unique geometry with a sloping top tube is very comfortable. I'm 5'8", and the 50cm size is a perfect fit for me.

Weaknesses:    The frame is stiff, making for a somewhat harsh ride, and the stock saddle doesn't help. The adjustable stem squeeks when you are climbing. I haven't figured out how to fix this yet.

Bottom Line:   
2008 Fuji Newest 1.0
This is my first road bike in years. I bought it basically as a commuter bike. I've been using it for about a year, and I've put about 800-1000 miles on it. Overall, I like this bike. The triple front chainring is great for the the casual rider. I really like the Tiagra shifter/brake levers. Being able to quickly shift 3 gears lower is a nice feature. The rear derailleur is nice and smooth. The front can be a little troublesome, requiring occasional adjustment, but is not a problem. Brakes are good, and the stock saddle is adequate, but I will probably replace it.

I researched over 25 different bikes, and found this to be the best value. I'm very happy with it.

Strengths:    Price was very reasonable. Components are better than most bikes in this price range.

Weaknesses:    Seat was made for a woman. Tires are 25c. for no apparent reason.

Bottom Line:   
Actually this is an '08. A very good entry level club bike. Good road feel for an aluminum bike. The carbon fork improves the feel. Easy to upgrade.
