I bought a 2011 Newest 1.0 on July 6, and I have throughly enjoyed this bike. it's really a good machine. Like another post about the Newest, I had looked at Specialized ( and Giant, Novarra Divano from REI.) But the Fuji had the better components. And Performance had a great deal on the price. I've been out of cycling for about 10 years and I needed something to replace my 1991 steel frame road bike.
