Fuji SST

I haven't posted in a while and even though it would appear I haven't been doing much, I've actually raced more this summer then in the past. But that will be a later post. First I need to share my new ride that I got in June. My old Cannondale had been faithful but it rode like a truck which meant it wasn't confidence inspiring at the limit. So I decided to sell my fixie and buy a new carbon frame. The 09 Fuji SST frame set was a crazy good deal so I picked it up and moved the parts from the Cannondale to the Fuji.

I've had it for 2 months now and I have to say I love it. The Fuji is definitely stiff but not harsh like the Cannondale could be. The biggest difference is how confidence inspiring it is through the corners and descents. While the Cannondale felt like I was fighting to control and felt very vague at the limit, the Fuji is smooth and feels locked in. It has been a confidence inspiring bike and an absolute blast to ride.

Capone wants to know if this a new toy?

Yes, but not for him.....

Here's the frame set.....

And here's the finished bike, about 16 lbs with pedals, cages, and SRM
