This is a 2007 Fuji Absolute DX in Steel Blue with Silver and Black decals. It is a 15″ / 38cm / Small (center of bottom bracket to top of seat tube) TIG welded Aluminum frame with a Cro-Mo Steel fork. The stand over height is 25″ directly in front of the saddle.
There are 24 speeds available through the three ring Fuji branded crank (52/42/30t), with alloy crank arms and the 8 gear (11-32t) SRAM freehub.
The rear derailleur is a Shimano Alivio and the front is a Microshift R438. Shifting is through SRAM MRX Twist Shifters.
Both wheels are Alex ID-19 alloy 700c rims drilled for Presta valves laced to quick release Formula alloy hubs. Both wheels have Kenda Kontender 700x28c black wall tires.
Braking is handled by Fuji branded V Brakes. The brake levers are Tektro alloy levers.
The black vinyl saddle saddle with is mounted to an alloy seat post that moves freely in the seat tube.
Flat Fuji alloy handlebars are mounted to an alloy stem.
There is a bottle cage on the down tube and bosses for one on the seat tube. There are bosses for a rear rack.
The bicycle rides, turns, stops and shifts through all of the gears and rings as it should.
The 17″ bicycle is supposed to fit riders from 5’4″-5″7″ so I would think this 15″ bicycle would fit from 4’10”-5’3″. Claimed weight for this bicycle is 25lbs. The aluminum frame is both neatly welded and well finished with a tough coat of paint. The position is comfortably upright and the adjustable stem allows some leeway with the handlebar height. Good visibility and easy handling are part and parcel of the set-up.
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.
