Bottom Line:   
I am commenting about a 2006 Fuji Roubaix I bought for $100. A fellow raod racer had an accident with it during the Tour De Tucson and sold it to me afterwards. the bike was a good looking jewel in the rough. In a day, I changed the gearing of the Truvativ crank to 30/39/50,replaced the frayed rear derailuer cable,handlebar tape, adjusted the brakes, trued the rear wheel,gave it a bath, polish and wholaa! The bike has an interesting yellow and black paint scheme with the black paired spoke wheels. It's a road rocket. With its yellow jacket coloring, it reminds me of a hemi Dodge Superbee of the 60's. It's a fast bicycle too.

Strengths:    Stiff Frame, very lightweight. Easy to ride at speed.

Weaknesses:    Bumpy on rough bridges. More comfortable and stable at 20 miles an hour than at 10.

Bottom Line:   
Very Very nice bike. Crazy light, loves to climb yet is stable on the downhills. Ultegra Comps shift easily. This bike loves to be ridden fast.

Strengths:    stiff but not punishing

Weaknesses:    tires

Bottom Line:   
I was looking for light plush ride (roubaix, ccr, defy, synapse). Then, I found this 54c (I normally ride 56) at HTO (new old stock). It was seriously discounted so I test rode it a couple times and could not pass up the deal. I flipped the stem, added look keos, conti gatorskins. I now have a superlight (just barely over 16 lbs) ride. Very controllable and climbs easily. Like previous reviewers, I have had no problem whatsoever with road vibration fatique resulting from stiff alu frame(howevever, my rides have been 35 or less miles). Only downside has been tires as I found them to collect any and all shards of glass -- numerous flats in first month on both fr/rear tirs led me to change them out for 23c gatorskins (the increase in weight is minimal and no flats since). I also read somewhere that the stock Fuji saddle was crap -- I disagree. I like the design on the saddle and no problem with comfort/pain. Overall, after about 750 miles, I am very happy with it!

Strengths:    light weight and strong...little if an flex...ride is comfortable with CF fork and seat post...Ultegra is excellent...I challenge anyone to find more new bike for the money

Weaknesses:    I have found none

Bottom Line:   
I had been riding mid 80s steel Treks and a 2005 Specialized Roubaix, and decided to clean house and get something less expensive but still light and high quality. I saw the Roubaix SL on Ebay and thought it could be had for a reasonable price. I bought it still in the sealed box, perfect cond. and assembled it, tuned the derailers, oiled it, etc...and took it for a ride. I had read that the alum. frame was brutal, but I found no sign of that. Maybe the CF seat post and fork saved me, but I found the ride to be comparable in comfort to the Spec. Roubaix, which is, of course, designed to sit more upright and be very easy on the body over distances. The Fuji clearly has a more aggressive geometry, but I liked it right away. I have put about 400 miles on the bike and have no issues with it. It is very light and responsive. The Ultegra group is excellent. For the money, I can't imagine a better ride. It's time for Fuji to get their due respect in the market. This bike is wonderful and very well-built, backed by over a hundred years of bike building...can Trek, Spec. or most other brands say the same? I may buy a second bike just like it. I highly recommend this ride. As for the seat and wheels...I have no issues with them, either. I read so much whining about seats and wheels, but they are excellent and very light.
