FUJI
Absolute 2.1  

$449

(The bikes we have in stock are dark blue.)

Notable features at this price

The price, and all the gear parts are made by Shimano.

Component overview

Aluminum frame, steel fork, Shimano Alivio rear derailleur, triple crankset with 48T big ring, 8sp cassette has 32T low. Double-wall 700c rims on Formula hubs. Tektro linear-pull brakes.

Why we like this bike
Versatile, utilitarian, serviceable, budget price. Fuji put on a fatter, 32mm street tire for this year.
Who is this bike for?
The rider who really needs a dedicated pavement bike but wants the cheapest thing.
Sizes
15,17,19,20.5.
 

FUJI
Absolute 1.4

$729  

Notable features at this price

Carbon-fiber front fork, triple crankset. Everybody likes the ergo grips.

Component overview

Same Al frame as other Absolutes. Shimano Deore/Acera gears with 9-speed 11-32 cassette. Double-wall rims make stronger wheels than Absolute 4.0.

Why we like this bike

A light, flat-handlebar road bike that still comes with Vermont gearing.

Who is this bike for?

The rider who appreciates a simple, good-looking bike, doesn't need to step up to a lighter-weight, better quality ride like the 1.3, but will pay reasonable money for wheels that hold up. We have a customer who commutes over 4,000 year-round miles on this kind of Fuji and has over 25,000 miles on it. With regularly replaced parts, of course.

Sizes

15,17,19,21,23.

FUJI
Absolute 1.3

$829

  

Notable features at this price

Smooth and zippy ride from light frame and carbon fork. Note that the Absolutes can be ordered up to a big, 23-inch size. This works well for those riders up to 6'3" or so.

Component overview

Fuji A2-SL Aluminum frame, Carbon fork w/aluminum steerer, Oval Concepts 50/34 compact crankset, Shimano Tiagra/Sora gears, Formula aero wheels. Tektro Mini-V brakes.

Why we like this bike
Skinny tires and Vermont gearing. It's the Absolute 1.4 frame and fork with lighter wheels and cranks.
Who is this bike for?

We once had a customer who had purchased 3 bikes for himself and his wife, all light, fast, skinny-tired road bikes for 20-50 mile pavement rides. He had swapped out the drop bars on all three machines and put on upright bars. This is that bike set up that way from the factory.

People who do charity fundraiser rides like this concept because they aren't initially cyclists but have committed to do something large (like ride 150 miles in two days). You want a bike where you never bend over the bars, but one that will really make the miles slide away faster? Here's your bike.

Sizes
15,17,19,21,23.
