2012 Fuji SST 3.0

Experience the thrill of a pro-level ride every time you hit the road with Fuji's SST 3.0. This carbon beauty is an exceptionally light and efficient road rocket with a silky-smooth ride thanks to Fuji's C4 carbon frame and a carbon-monocoque fork. Inside the tubes are stiffening reinforcements to let the SST accelerate with authority, while an aero seat tube and top tube connect to a BB86 bottom bracket and oversize down tube for awesome power transfer. To balance out the stiffness, the carbon narrows at the seatstays for a supple vibration-damping ride that lets you pedal in bliss mile after mile. This super frame is built up with a nice blend of components, too, from the easy-rolling Oval 330 wheels, to the Oval/Shimano 105 compact 20-speed drivetrain that lets you flatten the climbs, to the dual-pivot stoppers that offer sweet speed control. You'll also appreciate the host of Oval parts and the fine Selle Italia seat.

My first road bike and I'm dusting 85% of the riders at Prospect Park. I tested bikes that were more expensive like Specialized and Trek, and they didn't come close to this bike. I don't love the way it shifts, but the ride itself is great.

Comments:

"SST" stands for "super stiff team," and the higher iteration of it (SST 1) is a TDF bike. The bike is aptly named. This is an "everyman" bike because it lets you have the carbon and stiffness with the compromise of the "lower" components (groupo and wheelset) for a decent, budget-minded price. The geometry may be a bit different than the 1 and 2 (more relaxed), but I'd have to look at a chart to know that for sure. The frame has all the modern conveniences that are becoming the trend; semi-aero shapd tubes, big asymmetrical chain stays, internal cable routing (brakes AND derailleur), raised seat mast, oversized downtube and fork. It's a beautiful frame to behold. The only frame detraction is that my SST 3 is unpainted on the top tube, and the carbon joints are visible under the finish (all carbon bikes are jointed, but most manufacturers paint over them). I am an enthusiast, and I ride about 200+ miles a week. I ride hills when I can, and my average ride is 30-60 miles. When I have time, I'll ride 100 miles. I ride for fun first, physical fitness second, and I like a bike that's problem-free. This bike is stiff and fast, just like the name suggests. I thought I'd notice the 105 (shifting is a bit more 'clacky' than the Ultegra and DA), but where this frame really shines is in its ability to lay down some power on the roads. You don't need fancy components to do that. As LeMond says, "It doesn't get easier; you just get faster." I am a big rider (235 lbs.) and ride a 58; this bike really responds to my power when I sprint, and my average speeds have increased. It is comfortable and fast.
