    Finailly a manly Fuji

    My Fuji FS, lots of people slept on this one. Very few upgrades made for a solid bike, takes hits nice.


    Replaced the fork to a boxxer ride, one of the best descisions I have made in a while. Comes in at 43lbs.

    Seat is too high, I know. I took it off the stand before both pictures.

    I need a better rear shock. How do I figure out the stroke lenght? Is is just measures eye to eye on the shock? Any suggestions?

    43lbs ?? That sounds a little on the heavy side for that build, either way sweet build.

    The eye2eye is the length from one hole to the other where the shock mounts.

    The stroke is the length of the shaft.

    Not necessarily. 7.875" X 2.0" and 7.875" X 2.25" shocks have the same amount of exposed body. You need to either open the shock's air-sleeve and measure the internal damper shaft or contact the shock or frame manufacturer for original specifications.

    I'm pretty sure that frame uses a 7.875 x 2.0 rear shock. Lemme see if I can confirm.....

    I second cmb2874, how is that thing 43lbs? DH bikes weigh that much.

    Besides the weight, it looks like a lot of fun! I think I see a Horst link, cool

    This is a 2005 Fuji Adventure Comp.

    I picked the complete bike up at 50% off last year for $900. I have upgraded the fork, it came with a Manitou Nixon Comp 145mm. The stock wheels were poop so I threw some S-types on there. The stock tires were Cont. Gravity's, which actually suck for a rear, but I love the front. I recently put a Ignitor on the rear, great tire.

    A few other updrades here and there. The bike feels great and handles great too. With the boxxer dialed down to 135, the bike really flows.
