So I always pine over exotic bikes, and end up riding something that leaves a bit to be desire. Well I pulled the trigger on an SST 1.0, Fuji's top of the heap super stiff race bike. I personally find the bike highly underrated, it's well spec'ed, impressively light (minus the Oval OEM garbage), and really rides well. I expected the ride to be harsh in favor of stiffness, but am pleasantly surprised... one rough roads, it beats me up a bit worse than my older Fuji (a Team) but on anything besides potholes it's butter.

And with the Reynolds DV46s...

Haven't weighed it with the DV46s, but it sits at 16.2 with the everyday wheels (with pedals and cages) in a 60cm. My goal is get it below 16 for everyday riding (with a Garmin 800, saddle bag). The finish is impressive, not a true matte but more of a satin. All said and done, I'm blow away, it's the most impressive offering I've seen from Fuji.

Very nice. Don't get to see many Fujis here.

A big favor - could you take some additional pictures with a less cluttered background... the frame is almost camouflaged given all that stuff on the back wall. :wink:
