Strengths: sram drivetrain, x-7 shifters an f.der., x-9 r.deraileur, 4-bar linkage developed by specialized, adjustable rear air shock (comp & reb), and you can throw a lot at it
Weaknesses: heavy wheels, crank, frame squeaks, soft front shock
on top of the 650 i paid for it i've put in another 400 or so in upgrades. upgraded drivetrain is super light and brand new. the bike new is quoted 2k, so i think i got a great deal. i like personalizing the bike anyways. ride about 15-20 trail-miles every other day and the only problems ive had are flats. bike is awesome and plan to keep upgrading. bike looks very similar to ellsworth. its just cheaper to fix. quality of the bike is excellent and i put it to the test all the time.

Strengths: Great entry level bike - intermediate package. Specialized FSR suspension design, Fork Travel Adjust, decent components,
Weaknesses: Front shock a little soft, no lockout can cause pedal bob - dial it in before riding! Busted Deore LX R derailer after one week - raplaced with XT and Shifts way smooth!
Bought on eBay new in the box for $1050 - Awesome bike for that price, great bike still at the MSRP ($2k?). I'm a new rider after years out (last bike was a Ritchey P23!) and still getting used to the full suspension. Frame is quite solid, with the Specialized FSR linkage - can bob a bit on climbs - important to dial in the shocks and drop the fork down (It came with a remote travel adjust as a surprise). The fork and shock are Suntour - not the greatest, but adjustable with rebound.
Great trail bike, but a little sketchy on the rough stuff. I'v been following my friend who is a pretty intense rider on a Santa Cruz with heavy spec - can really feel the difference as the Fuji is really set up for cross country (even though it has lots of travel.
Superb entry or trail bike - lots of milage (km?) in this baby fo rthe price! Frame construction is excellent
Well I'm sure some of you have seen my other thread, I've decided I really just can't stand full suspension bikes compared to hardtails so I'm selling mine!
