Fuji Team 1.0 review

Fuji Team 1.0 2011
Cycling Weekly Verdict

It's only a small criticism, but as bikes are said to be bought mostly with the eyes here goes: the red, black and white scheme is a bit Noughties, especially next to the Cinelli's Pac-Man palette. With the renewed interest in keirin racing and NJS components, now would be a good time for the company to reconnect with its Japanese roots and come up with something more eye-catching. But we're just being picky.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Great component spec

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Old school paint scheme

  • -

    Uncomfy seatpost

This is a UK exclusive from the company named after Japan's highest mountain. It takes Fuji's 2010 Roubaix frame with non-tapered head tube and conventional (ie non-press fit) bottom bracket to keep the price down and ensure best possible value without compromising too heavily on spec and features.

The frame is made from Fuji's custom-butted Altair 2 aluminium and compared with some of the riotous colours and shapes thrown by the Cinelli and the Condor, looks relatively conservative. However, the top tube is subtly arched and the seat tube is round-profiled but oversized, taking a seatpost with a diameter of 31.5mm by our measurements.
