Are there any Fuji folks out there? I've never seen anyone else actually on the trail riding one, I mean I know someone has to be riding them 'cause Fuji keeps making them. lets have some pics too.

Thank, you got a nice looking bike too. Someday I will have to get a full suspension, but for now I just need to get back into the sport.

I have one of thse folding Fuji from a few years back. Does that count??? I've upgraded it with parts taken off my other bike upgrade projects so it's more bling than the stock. Right now it just dits there but I may convert it into a single speed.

wow, not that many fuji people responding. Hey lovemonkey how long have you had your bike, and how well has your frame held up?

Since october last year. My frame has held up fine. The linkage gets creaky sometimes, but I just snug the bolts back up. I've only put like 700 miles on it though.

Oh yeah, there isn't anything wrong with the quality of their frames, they actually manufacture for other companies. I may buy an Adventure, or whatever they're calling their long travel bike now, I've almost out-grown the capabilities of this one. Plus I kind of like being the only one on a Fuji on the group rides. I'm getting one of their road bikes just as soon as I can.

That's nice, very good looking. Dosn't seem to have enough dirt on it though. What do you think of the Dual-Control?

hi
when i took those pictures it was the day i bought it. i considered all the major brands like trek kona secialized gt giant ironhorsen gf... when looking for the bike. than i walked in in supergo and test rode fuji adventure and i knew i wanted it. my first impresion was that the frame geometry fits me the best of all bikes i had ridden before. and the comfort of riding is very good. it is great bike once again, has top components and i got it for the half of retail price. dual controls work well for me i didnt need much time to get used to them, i dont get any interference between shifting and breaking. If anyone thinks of getting this bike i highly recommend it. and it has horst link too so thats nice.

Just in case anyone else is reading this thread, I wanted to comment on Fuji's customer service. Before I bought my bike, I emailed their warranty support to find out the frame warranty, 'cause I had heard that it was lifetime, but I wasn't sure. They replied very promptly, although their answer was that they only had a 5 year warranty. I am ok with a five year warranty on the frame, since that seems to be about standard. And just over the weekend I emailed their tech support to get geometry information, because I am thinking of switching to a 100mm fork. They replied today and were very polite in the email. Just wanted to let everyone know that they seem to have A+ customer service.

I just bought a 05 fuji diamond pro. I bought it as my XC bike. I have a Intense Uzzi SL (5 1/4 travel F&R), its a little heavy for the less hilly trails we ride at night. The Intense will be used for the more technical spots, The Fuji for the faster smoother trails. I bought it since they license the FSR design from specialized. I really like the active rear on the climbs. Will post pics later...............

Did my first night ride on the fuji....loved it. I love the ride if the intense, it LOVES technical sections, just alittle slow on the flats. Its fine for a epic group ride, but at some of the faster trails it kills me. I love the active FSR (horst link) bikes. They really bite on climbs, I feel they help with traction on steep climbs. I bought the Fuji for night and less technical rides.

Only a couple probs with the fuji

1) bars/stem/grips-not really a prob, just prefrence. they are 31.8, 25in wide, I like my bars a little wider (26). And with the larger dia bar, puts the light mount a little too close to the front brake cable causing a slight bend, swapping for easton 27 in wide, standard dia bar and stem.

2)Grips- again, prefrence item. Like the WTB weirwolfs. Also the fuji grips are a little short.

3)Saddle- once again, prefrence item, swapped the WTB for a flite.

4)Front shock- Manitou black 120 w/lockout. Its fine, just want a little lighter and less travel. Prolly gonna go with a Reba SL U-turn(3.5lb, the manitou is 4.4 lbs), leave it set at the 85mm to match the shorter travel setting in the rear. Would like to go with a 80mm Fox air shock....but too much $$

Here are some pics,
