Strengths:    good ergos for my frame. lightweight frame

Weaknesses:    utterly crappy components, completely incapable of putting with the type of riding i do so I am converting it to a fixie with low gearing to be my winter bike though in doing so i am doubling my investment in this bike still i don't care beacause the frame fits so well

Bottom Line:   
great frame throw the rest out well keep the bars if your me and maybe flip the stem. aslso i probably would pay this much just for the frame

Strengths:    I bought this bike for the coolness factor and its cost effectiveness appeal.Why spend $300+ for somethin your not gonna use to its full potential? Go out and buy a SUV forchristsake! The money you save on purchase can be spent on some personal fave.accessories.

Weaknesses:    I tried to purchase the Fuji Thunder model but its not available in the U.S.A. Hey, Fuji! take my $ please! but dont show me somethin I cant have! ok? I tried to contact Fuji to ask where I could get fenders like the Thunder model but they didnt respond. Hello Fuji can you hear me now!!!?

Bottom Line:   
Overall the bike handels well and is fairly comfortable for the price.Get a larger seat if you have a fat american a** if not keep it for that c. factor. Its a good no frills investment to get you from point A-B w/ 100% eye candy appeal.

Weaknesses:    It looks good, so lock it up well in the city or it'll be stolen. :(

Bottom Line:   
really smooth ride, shifts easily, great on hills. Really light weight, I'd get full road tires if you are going to be on the stree alot because the hybrid tires make it a little rougher. Definately not for those who want a really fast bike, however, because it's not
Comforatable saddle for long rides, easy to disassemble.

Strengths:    strong frame,nice paint job(get the black),good brakes,rst 181 cl fork seems ok so far.

Weaknesses:    small pedals,all i can see so far.

Bottom Line:   
so far ,so good, took it out a few times and like what i got. i,m 6'4" over 300lbs and the bike holds me just fine. however be advised that i'm not the type of guy to beat on a bike. i don't jump or do any trails, just basic street riding. the most daring thing that i do is is ride down the short stairs at the park. so if you want a bike to hold a big guy, this is a good value . provided that you don't beat on it. even if i paid $20.00 too much. i'll let you know if any thing changes. remember i just bought this bike this week.

Some Twitter updates over the past two days from the guys/gals at Boulevard... The Smokestack Series releases of Chocolate Ale, and Bourbon Barrel Quad are being bottled. Look for them to hit local shelves very soon. Both are fairly limited, the BA Quad being more so, but no word (that I found ... Read More »

Duthie parking - Trossachs Boulevard

A lot of people are beginning to normalize parking along the boulevard instead of 50 yards further down the road in the school parking lot. Also I see a lot of people just park in front of residents' houses. Not really sure what your problem is, frankly, but it's going to get us in trouble event ... Read More »

Those of you that have read my other posts know that when I see a new beer I buy it. I left the east coast 3 days ago in a Penske truck full of my stuff and I'm back in the PacNW for a few months.

Iowan here, i'd imagine other midwesterners can get these, but Boulevard is making 750mL bottles of fancy beer, and they're quite good. i'm currently getting through the last bit of a bottle of "sixth glass quadrupel ale" and it's very intense and hard to deal with. also had a bottle of the "doulbe ...
