Lowdown: Fuji SL 1.3
Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of Fuji bikes. I think they offer amazing quality and value at a very good price. In fact, the first Fuji I bought was a scandium Fuji Team Issue road bike in 1999 - and I rode the snot out of it until 2004. In fact, It's still being ridden by a friend's 14-year-old son, who is using it to race triathlon. In 2010, when I worked at Yahoo!, the company cycling team was issued Fuji SL-1 Pro bikes, another great ride. Even years after the team was disbanded, some of my old team members continue to ride it. I also rode a 2012 D6 triathlon bike, which helped me set a PR on the Wildflower 1/2 ironman bike course, shaving 2 minutes off my previous best. Needless to say, I was looking forward to testing the new lightweight Fuji SL 1.3. Find out how it worked out in the full review below.
