Strength:

Light and manoeverable. Forks are great (the reason I bought the bike instead of a Jamis), I like the adjustments from soft to locked out.

Weakness:

The ProMax brakes were hopeless. Never worked properly from day one. Frame a litle flexible and took some getting used to.

The flex in the frame took some getting used to, and the ProMax disc brakes had to be changed for Tektro, but once that was overcome, I have enjoyed the bike. I changed the handlebar to a riser 'cos my back was squealing on long rides. I ride trails at least three times a week so this bike has seen some action and has performed well. In hindsight, I would have preferred the Jamis Durango Sport. I am now buying a Jamis Dakar XLT 2.0 but will keep the Fuji as a stand-by.

Strength:

Fantastic framework! Price!

Weakness:

Brakes, Fork, and Grips if we want to get picky.

For and entry level racer, or someone looking into getting serious out mountain biking, this bike is the way to go. It has great parts stock, and is cheaper that most of the other brands out there. The frame is outstanding. It has a smidge on flex, but i've only noticed it while on the stationary trainer. It climbs like a mountain goat, goes where you point it, and flys on the downhills. The fork was a little too stiff for my liking (im a lightweight at 150lbs), so i upgraded. The brakes were awful from the get go, so they were replaced as well. Other than those two issues, it is a great bike for someone who's looking for a great bike to ride, or someone looking for a frame worthwhile of upgrading with later on down the road. 4 chilis for value due to the fork and brake inadequacies, and 5 chilis for overall value

Strength:

The price! Awesome framework, great equipment.

Weakness:

None so far, i guess the discs need to wear to the pads before stopping power is satisfactory.

Great value for money! Compared to the Trek(550USD in Denmark) you get a better fork, better gears and an about 5 lbs lighter bike. The AE spokane is lighter than this Fuji, but they handle pretty much the same(my AE was 18", Fuji 17"). I simply love the looks of this bike, i get envious glances all the time. Hehe, they all think i paid loads for this bike, i don't intend to tell them the price(unless they read this....)
