    New bike

    My first mountain bike ride since January. I really like to mix it up so for the most part. I jump from one thing to another. City, Paved Path, Motorcycling and back to single track. (when time allows) Nice to have options tho.

    The trail was perfect as was the day. Awesome fall afternoon. I canít believe just how much I missed single trackÖso much fun.

    This was a shake down ride. New bike and the first time using clipless on a MTB trail. Love the perimeter trail. Riding close to the river like that and the down hill trail with those small dirt mounds.

    All in all, good time...

    My bike is a Fuji Tahoe pro

    The bike is a deal compared to whatís available now of days with 2011 prices. Every works as it should and itís all mid level with some low level components tossed in the mix. Overall, not bad and does the job nicely.

    Frame: Love it! Not just the color, but the hydro forming. Nice!
    Fork: Tora 318 29er Air
    Derailleur: Sram X7 F&R
    Shifters: X7
    Brakes: Avid Juicy 5ís
    Rotors: 185F & 160R

    Good: Tires, Saddle, Wheelset.

    Doable: Crankset

    Will upgrade the crankset tho






    Cell phone photos...sorry.

    Looks like a nice bike.

    The color is listed as putty or is it green?

    The color is green. I think putty may be the 2010 color. They should update that info. Never the less. I like the color.

    What's the difference?

    It is a Fuji, but the frame is manufactured by the same company and the rest of the parts are 3rd party like every other bike.

    OK, same company. cool.
    I was test riding Fuji 29ers at my local performance and ended up going with a moto 29er (Gravity.4). Bike gets here on thursday. Good to hear they are very similer and made from the same company.
    I also test rode the Access. Are these also made in the same Factory?
