Fuji SL 1 Pro Sram
How it is used
3-4 times a week. Training, dry weather only. Mixture of flat, small and big hills. I am around 90kg
Description Full carbon frame, Reynolds Attack Wheels and full Sram Force groupset
+ Groupset - Sram Force is awesome, gear changing precise, ergonomics, carbon cranks and light. It is the full groupset not with cheaper brakes and cranks etcâ€¦ I am comparing to Shimano Ultegra 6700, 6600 and 105.
Wheelset - Reynolds Wheels roll superbly, they are little bit of aero for flats and not too deep a profile for hill climbing. Braking obviously not as good as aluminium rims.
- Frame â€“not the stiffest Iâ€™ve ridden. Seat post is not carbon but that is not too hard to upgrade. Also steering is a bit twitchy. Saddle has a long nose that takes some getting used too, but when worn in I would consider taking to my next bike. When descending I donâ€™t feel it handles as well as other bikes I have ridden. Paint job is not as durable as I would like.
Had the bike for 3-4 months. I have not had one puncture on the Vittoria Rubino Pros. The roll is good and cornering grip is OK for their price point. I usually am a Conti GP4000 rider.
I like the long curve profile of the handlebars which are different to the ergo type I have used in the past. It is interesting they come with a relatively long stem of 120mm. I donâ€™t know what lube they put on the drive train in the factory but it is sensational. smooth running for ages and didnâ€™t pick up any crap.
Love the wheels and groupset, would buy them any day of the week. Not so sure on the frame.
Value for money
