This is a 2001 Fuji Finest in Pearl White and Metallic Blue with Black decals. It is a 23″ / 58cm / Large (center of bottom bracket to top of seat tube) TIG welded Fuji Custom Butted Cro-Mo frame with a Cro-Mo fork. The stand over height is 31.5″ directly in front of the saddle.
There are 24 speeds available through the Cyclone three ring (52/42/30t) chainset with 175 mm alloy crank arms and the Shimano 8 gear (12- 25 t) freehub.
The rear derailleur is a Shimano Sora and the front is a Shimano Sora. Shifting is through Shimano Sora Total Integration Brake Shifters (Brifters).
Both wheels are double wall AlexRims alloy rims drilled for a Presta valves laced to quick release Shimano Sora alloy 32 hole hubs. Both wheels have brand new 700x23c blackwall tires.
Braking is handled by front and rear CRP dual pivot calipers.
The original Fuji black and blue vinyl saddle is mounted to an alloy Fuji seat post that moves freely in the seat tube. There is a small tear on the left rear of the saddle.
Alloy handlebars are mounted to a Fuji aluminum stem.
There is a bottle cage on the down tube and bosses for another on the seat tube.
The bicycle rides, turns, stops and shifts through all of the gears and rings as it should.
I bought this bicycle from the original owner. When it was new, you could go to your local Fuji dealer and pedal back home on it after giving them $650 ( about $1041 today). It has a claimed weight of 25lbs which is quite respectable still today. This is a good looking, nice riding steel bicycle with good components and new tires. Probably best suited for riders between 5′-10″ – 6′-2″.
For less than the price of a generic Bike Shaped Object that anyone might buy online or from a store that sells bicycles in the Toy Department, you could be riding this vintage bicycle with quality components. The fact that it is still rolling down the road is a testament to how well it was built.
