Strengths:    Very light, responsive, Quality/Price is very high

Weaknesses:    Hardtail and 80mm fork are no help for comfort downhill ;-)
Maybe the rear casquette is a little weak.

Bottom Line:   
I was really looking for a hardtail to start mountain biking as I had been a Trialist and BMX rider in the past I thought I would be more comfortable with hardtail. I was not disappointment, this bike is really good. it's light, and reactive.. Solid enough (I'm 210pounds), and has handled some really fast downhills, although it requires a bit more skill and control to handle the bike in that case. The brake are very good, the crank set very impressive and I have had no issue so far. The pedal are a little bit small, and I switched for XTR which gives a lot more control on the bike.
I crashed a few times with it, but nothing moved. I really don't regret buying this bike, it was an awesome choice.

Strengths:    Very light and responsive. Excellent components group (SLX) for the money. Pop-loc remote lock on front fork is nice for lockout on the fly.

Weaknesses:    None thus far held up great.

Bottom Line:   
I had never really considered a Fuji when it was time to upgrade and get a new bike nor did I really look into getting a Carbon Finer bike either but the Mt Fuji Pro has exceeded my expectations in every way. It's very light, handles great and is very responsive and sturdy no flex at all, and the components group is a very good match for the bike have been riding it for almost 6 months and haven't even consider upgrading any of the components. Might upgrade to a Fox fork one day but the Rock Shox Recon suits my needs right now. You cam get the 2009s and a significant discount so I would highly recommend anyone looking for a light well built hardtail to check the Mt Fuji Pro out, and Fuji has a lifetime warranty om the frame no questions asked.

Strengths:    Very light, not that common so individual and can be had for a bargain. Well specced for the money.

Weaknesses:    Rivited front mech cable support means that you can't drop the seat post right down when tackling steep technical descents. That's a dumb design flaw for a modern top end frame! Carbon fibre frames are not hard wearing.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent value for money compared to the likes of Scott and Specialized, and the frame, though flawed (see above), is very light, lighter than my Endorphin, and very well built. An excellent geometry for tackling cross country routes, and the stock bike will serve you well for this.

Rock Shox Recon 351 forks aren't my first choice but have a remote lockout on the forks which is a nice touch. Miss the ETA of the Marzocchi forks for climbing.

Stem bolts seemingly designed to rip your nut sack if you fall over the handlebars. Seat is comfortable. LX Disc brakes work very well.

Check out end of year bargains at your local store and see just how much you get for your money!!!
