Strengths: great ergonomics,good climber,great in the rocks,stable
Weaknesses: a little heavy
after trashing my cannondale f5 frame i found this one used through my lbs. i bought it with a truvativ noir and 3.3 monarch already installed(i know, it was hell of a deal)for $350. the ergonomics are very similar to my cannondale.this bike is a beast on the trails. it climbs great,descends great and does everything else great. the rear suspension is a specialized design.also you need to know that fuji sizes run big, i ride a large cdale or 19 and my fuji is a medium 19.im 5'10" and it is a perfect fit.if you're not a weight snob this bike is awesome. definitely recommended.
Bike Setup: reba fork, x9 deraileurs , slx cranks , hayes brakes , custom wheels with xt hubs. bike is full custom with red white and blue parts

Strengths: Light, xtr, fast, very strong, looks great
Weaknesses: Nothing yet.
Had the Fuji Pro (Blue) really liked it, bought the Specialized Epic Expert, did not even compare, sold the epic and bought the Fuji RC Frame 2008. Light as heck 25lbs. During races I feel like I'm riding in the bike not on top of it. Holds steady in hard turns, climbs and decends great. I used to think and did buy the 4-k 6-k bikes. Don't get fooled, this bike hold and goes to war with the best of them. Once you find the bike that fits, hold onto it. This one does. Total upgrades $3,000.00 and I have never felt better. I will not get fooled again.
Bike Setup: I bought the frame alone and bult up. The head set and shock are stock.

Strengths: Ritchey WCS componenets,Cane Creek Wheels and rear shock,Rock Shox Reba fork,xt/xtr stuff Pretty solid bike for the money.
Weaknesses: Paint peels off, pedal bob no matter how much air you put in, original tires are heavy and wear out fast.
The bike was bought through a sponsorship program so the price was right. If I had to do it over again, i would have done a little more research. Doing long races I have noticed that the continuous pedal bob wears you down. If its efficiency you are looking for then I suggest you look elswhere or go with the 2007 model which appears to be a more efficient design. I would say that I am satisfied with my bike after a couple of minor changes(Tires,Seatpost,Grips) but I am not overly impressed.
Bike Setup: 2006 Fuji Outland RC frame,Cane Cane Creek Zonos disc wheels,Maxxis Larsen TT's, XT dual shifters,front dr. and brakes,xtr rear der. Rithey WCS carbon bars,Thomson masterpiece post, WTB rocket v ti saddle.
I found a 2010 Fuji Outland 29 RC ([url]http://2010.fujibikes.com/Mountain/Full-Suspension-100mm/OutlandRC-%281%29.aspx[/url]) frame and Rock Shox Monarch 3.3 rear shock on craigslist for $250. I see the whole bike new is around the $4000 mark.

Looking at perhaps building one of these frames up with the stuff from my older sc superlight, for a xc race bike. Ride a ex 9 on endurance stuff, so it will be for shorter faster rides. Is the frame worth building up? anyone riding this bike?Read More »
