2012 Fuji SST 2.0

2012 Fuji SST 2.0

Postby Chrisgolding » Fri Aug 10, 2012 2:29 pm

Hi there,

Any help would be great, im looking at the 2012 Fuji SST 2.0 cant seem to find many reviews out there, does anyone have one? any feedback would be great. Also what would you suggest upgrading? Oval wheel set, Oval Break set? Should i get rid of this and what to? The bike is costing me $3000 so i have about another $500 spare. The shop has said they would do a trade in for the Oval 335 Wheel set.

So if you have any info, thoughts, feedback please get involved.

Cheers
Chrisgolding

Best bet is to head over to Road Bike Review and check out the fuji subforum http://forums.roadbikereview.com/fuji/

Fuji have a bigger share of the market in the US than here, they only seem to been making the push in the last couple of years into Australia. So a lot more information on the US based RBR forums.

The SS in SST stands for Super Stiff, the SST 1.0 is a full on race bike with ISP, you can pick up a new 2011 SST 1.0 with Dura Ace, top level components and great wheels for a little more that the 2012 SST 2.0 and in my opinion much better value. The SST 2.0 & 3.0 same frame design, just a different type (ie cheaper) type of carbon

If you want a bike that even more eye catching than the SST 2.0 see if you can find a 2011 SST 3.0 Fuji Servetto replica new for 2k, same frame as 2011/12 SST 2.0 except in metallic gold fuji servetto livery, 105 groupset and lesser components. But then you have $1k to upgrade.

Was thinking about an SST 3.0 but got 2010 SL comp instead, preferred SRAM Rival to 105 or even Ultegra

Love mine,picked it up in Adelaide for 2400,most seen are around that price....good wheels are always great to have but the ovals are solid if just a bit heavy.
Been racing mine since feb and have found a big improvement in sprint and speed generally but last frame was a chinesy.........they are super stiff though and bounce on bumpy roads....but generally good....all ive changed is the seat and bars....

Ditto to Porridgewog comments. Only had mine for a few weeks (SST 2.0 2012) but early impressions are that it is a pretty responsive bike that puts whatever power you can generate pretty well through the back wheel and the steering is super responsive. Just added some lighter 50mm carbon rims which still to try since been away for a few weeks.

SST 1.0 rocks!
I've had one with DA for a while and I love it...never had an issue with it ever.

2013 SST 1.1 is non ISP.

After a few rides and races now fitted with the lighter aero wheels I reckon this would be a serious weapon in the hands of someone a bit younger and stronger than the writer. I have taken huge chunks of time out of many sections of my regular rides since switching from my Orbea. Having said that, did a 200k in the mountains on the Orbea midweek and it still feels sweet too! Horses for courses!
