The 2018 is the same I'm told with a little different color scheme, fuji is solid red on down tube. I just ordered mine from Bicycle Doctor for 1500 US dollars. Should arrive first week of Aug. I have a picture but can't figure out out to make is small enough to post

Funny... the SL on PEZ today (and the complete builds on Fuji's US site) have direct-mount brakes, but the frame-only option shows as having a standard brake mount.

Link to this shop? I'll take an SL frame for 1500. They retail for 2500.

I call BS on the $1500 pricing. Since the shop is local, I'll give them a call. Great find if it's 1,500 for 2018 model.

Hmm the one I found is in Indiana. But I emailed them.

Well I got quoted 1700 for a 2018 and 1500 for a 2017. Well damn. Is this a solid frame or does it have a lot of flex? I understand it's super light but I still want it to be stiff when cranking on it.

LOL. That picture shown on Pez, the one with the direct-mount brakes, is from a Fuji Transonic. The SLs don't have fat seat stays :D And I went to the Fuji U.S.A. website and all of the SLs show regular brakes. Where do you see the one with direct-mount brakes?

You're totally right...missed that. In a discussion of the SL they slipped in a pic of a Transonic. I stand corrected.

Performance has complete Fuji SLs on sale all the time-combined with their frequent reward points bonuses, buying complete and selling off the unneeded parts might be a cost effective option.

The picture that they use of the seat stays are from the Transonic. Look at the shaping of the stays. They are aero. I can guarantee that the SL's do not have direct mount brakes.
