    Here's some info

    There's only one review in the review section, and it's from 2004, so take it for what it's worth.

    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/XC_Hardt...t_123322.shtml

    Fuji has a very good reputation for their road frames, but for some reason don't have a discernable reputation in the the US mountain biking world. Hopefully the frame is worthy of the component spec. If so, it looks like a nice racing bike.

    Your English is fine tepic. I have to agree with CmC it is well set up component wise. It should ride very well, has large down tube, short steer so it looks solid.

    couple of thoughts

    it's a race bike I think, at only 21+ lb. If you're not a racer this might not be a good ride for you, certainly no fun on tougher technical trails.

    Note it comes without pedals, adding to your cost.

    If you''re serious, check to make sure you can get parts fast, like rear dérailleur hangers; if you break one and can't get a replacement your ride is useless.

    Good luck, and your English is fine.

    I think you can get the same bike from Bikesdirect.com

    for $1095 under the Motobecane name.

    If it fits, and you can find one at a good price and you can afford it, buy it.

    Good luck in your races.

    Fuji makes a nice bike, it is not the same one as the Motobecane on bikesdirect. Buy it, I have ridden my Fuji in some form for 6 years now and at one point it was set up similar to the one you are thinking about, they don't get enough press or attention for what they are, they have been building bikes a long time and you won't go wrong with this.
