Fuji Roubaix 1.5 [2014]
Price Tag: $999.00 Frame: Fuji A6-SL custom-butted alloy, integrated 1 1/2" lower head tube, oversized 34.9mm seat tube & PIIS BB86 shell, double water bottle mounts Fork: Carbon blades with aluminum steerer Crankset: Oval 520 forged alloy, 50/34T Bottom Bracket: Press-fit BB86 sealed bearing Drivetrain: Shimano Sora STI shifter/brake combo, Shimano Sora front, Shimano Tiagra rear, KMC 9-speed chain, 11-28T cassette Components: Oval 310 handlebar, Oval R300 saddle, Oval 300 seatpost Wheelset: Oval 327 aero alloy clincher, 20/24H precision road hubs, stainless bladed spokes Weight: 19.36 lbs / 8.8 kg Review: I may have a biased opinion, because this is the first bike I purchased. The Sora/Tiagra combo is nice for a bike in the price range. The Tiagra rear derailleur works very well and is a nice upgrade from a normal Sora derailleur. The frame from Fuji is much more aggressive than other bikes in this price range, sporting a particularly short head tube. I experienced issues with the bottom bracket, but I believe the bracket has been improved since earlier models.

@TeamWaffles It's changed a bit but not too drastically! I really love the newer color schemes!
