Strengths: i have the 2009 roubaix with the tiagra/105 mix. this fuji is a replacement for my specialized tarmac that was stolen. i was quite pleased at how well the roubaix cornered and the handling was way better than an aluminum framed bike should be. the tiagra group works well. the seat was horrible. replaced with a specialized avatar
Weaknesses: the seat as mentioned. and after a few hundred miles the fsa gossomer cranks loosened. took apart, applied locktite and installed. no more issues. the alex wheels are the main downfall. they are heavy and flexy. wont stay true. take the money saved and upgrade wheels. good advice on most bikes
overall i am very satisfied with this bike. bikes at a lower price need to be personalized. i can hang with anyone on this bike. fuji did a great job with the roubaix. i would take it over a trek any day

Strengths: love my Roubaix stable bike light in frame good bike for commuting and for racing basically it is a balanced bike
Weaknesses: haven't found a weakness as yet and its been a year
Great bang for the buck. Picked up a 2011 Roubaix 1.0 at Peformance for less than 1k. After do research for about a year I was happy to find a bike in this price range that had full 105 on the bike. Mine even has the 105 crank.
I did have to change the rear wheel due to me being overweight (why I am getting into riding, to try and lose weight). I had to buy a heavier wheel but thats due to me not the bike. Overall I have been completely happy and satisfied with my purchase.
Bike Setup: 61cm Frame
Full 105 components including the wheels

Strengths: Just moved and my regular bike, a Kestrel full carbon frame with Ultegra, will only arrive in a few months. Bought the Fuji to get me over the next few months and I am "shocked", how good the bike is! Yes, the Alex wheels are heavy, but Tiagra works great. Love the bike!
Weaknesses: None for the money

The Fuji Roubaix bicycle is the perfect fit for people of all walks of life, whether you need to commute to work, recreationally ride around town, or enter into any form of racing. The bike is highly competitive and a comfortable fit at any speed. I am extremely pleased with purchasing this bike, and I hope this review will help you purchase the bike of your dreams as well.
I currently ride a Tommaso Monza which I bought [I]online[/I]. It's served me well (especially for the price!), but 3 years and a dozen or so centuries later, I'm getting the itch to upgrade.
I currently have my eyes set on a Roubaix SL4 Expert (though I'll probably wait to see what the 2014 Rou ... Read More »
Been saving up to buy my first proper road bike all summer, and now I'm torn between buying the 2013 Roubaix Sport, which comes in at the top of my budget. Or, waiting to see how the 2014 models price out.
Based on what I know about the the 2014s, they will all feature SL4 frames with internal cabl ... Read More »
I'm looking at getting my very first road bike. I've test ridden many bikes and settled on the Roubaix. My LBS had a base model on sale for $1400 and the next one in my size is an Expert model for $3,000. This isn't ideal since I want to get a bike before summer is over but I'm afraid the ...

A friend of my parents found this bike inside some property that she bought, and she told me I could basically have it for whatever I want. I was just wondering if someone could help me identify the year/model of the bike and how much it is worth, as I believe the bike is probably worth a lot of mo ... Read More »
