The Fuji Transonic:

I like this bike at a glance, it's competitively priced for the various specs and their marketing is consumer friendly for the most part imo. I agree with many of their design decisions such as not putting the rear brake on the chain-stay as it's easier to work with and doesn't interfere with Stages-like power meters. Fuji makes high-end TT and track bikes so they obviously know a lot about aerodynamics too.

Speaking of that...

The Transonic compared to the SST
121g reduction in drag averaged across yaw from 0-20 degrees, which equates to 23.98 watts saved. If a steady 300 watts were put out by a rider over a 40km course, the Transonic would be 65 seconds faster.

I think they should release the testing procedure to support these claims. Anyone know more about how they came up with these numbers?

Also, feel free to share your thoughts about this bicycle!
