I've been looking at a used fuji roubiax pro supposedly in good condition.I was wondering what a used roubiax pro goes for thats in good condition so i know what to offer this guy.Also it is a 54cm bike and i'm about 5'10 or 5'11.Will it not fit?I've heard fuji run large.

Thanks
Of late, Fuji geometry between models is all over the map, so operating on the premise that Fuji's run large is misleading. I suggest riding the bike (for a period of time) before deciding. Even a great deal monetarily is no deal if the bike doesn't fit well.

Beyond fit, when considering mixed materials bikes like this Fuji, check closely where the alu and CF are joined to make sure it's still a solid bond. If history is any indicator, that's the weak link with these types of frames.

The Fuji Roubaix Pro uses standard frame sizing. Meaning that a 54cm bike measures out at around 54cm. Not the compact frame sizing like where a 50cm bike fits like a 52cm bike.

For a 5'10-11 person, you probably would fit better on a 56cm. I'm 6'1" and ride a 58 with an 80mm stem, as opposed to a 56 with a longer stem. The 58 felt more comfortable for me over the 56.

If you can, see if you can take it for a ride before purchasing. And like PJ said, check over the bike. for bonding issues. With a used bike, there is no warranty and no assurance that the bike was never crashed or repaired.
'Standard frame sizing' in the bike industry? What's that?? :confused:

Just kidding, but to illustrate my point, the '09 Fuji Roubaix Pro (last year it was offered AFAIK) in a 54cm measures out to a 52cm seat tube length and 53cm effective top tube. Since then Fuji changed the Roubaix line to a more traditional 54cm seat tube length and 55cm effective top tube on their 54's.

Bottom line for the OP is that he really needs to test ride the bike for a period of time before deciding.
