Im happy to be back on a Fuji. Fuji and I go way back. My first bike that I got that wasn't purchased from a department store was a Fuji. My brother and I received identical Fuji Odessas mountain bikes for Christmas. Unfortunately my other brother took mine out one day and got it stolen.
Look at these stud racer's on their hot new steads.
But fate had a purpose as the result of this led to me receiving my first ever road bike, a Fuji Ace, which I used in my first races. My father later purchased me a replacement mountain bike which was Fuji Thrill. Quite a history with Fuji's, but this is not it.
My first road bike race on my Fuji.
My dad's first race bike was a Fuji Roubaix. Wish I had a picture of this sweet light blue with pink lettering beauty. I'll never forget when he got rid of it for an aluminum Klien that I thought was so ugly because of it's fat tubes. Shows you what I knew back then.
Continuing on my brothers first real nice new race bike was a Fuji Team, which I was wicked jealous of. It was pretty sweet and light, with all new 9speed Ultegra. Soon after that though, I was fortunate enough to also get a nice new road bike. And what was that. Non other then the Breezer with Dura Ace 25th anniversary group on it. A little History there huh. But this is not the end of the Fuji story yet.
This was the first breezer. No picture on my computer of the Fuji Team.
Before heading of to Marian College I needed to have a Track bike for the track racing that I would now be participating in. Not only was this a Fuji Track bike, but this would be the first and so far the only bike I purchased completely with my own money. I'm so proud of my clown bike.

The following year I would ride my father's track bike, which was the a pretty sweet Fuji Track bike. And this would be the last Fuji I've ridden. Although I still do have my first Fuji Track bike, but I haven't even seen it in over a year. Long story on that one, but it's just at the track waiting for me when I feel ready to get back on the track some day.

So now I'm just sitting and waiting for my new Fuji bike, and I am very excited about being able to be back on such a high quality, and top preforming race bike. Full specs and riding details to come as soon as I get some miles on it. I'll be spending the next few days riding the rollers next to the door waiting for the brown Santa Claus with my favorite gift, a new bike.
B.T.W. My uncle also has a Fuji Road Bike that is like from the 70's. So chew on that one for a while.
