Here's Fuji's 2019 catalog. To me it's interesting to not see an SL 1.1 with either SRAM Red Etap or Dura-Ace Di2. Like everyone else they're adding discs to all their road models. I think it's a shame the Supreme is only packaged with 30mm wheels, since it's intended to be similar to the Transonic.

Ultimately I'd like to see some reviews and real weights, but at the moment the Transonic 2.1 disc and SL 2.1 disc are up there for me considering the cost. It's nice to see Di2 on a (hopefully) sub $4000 bike.

I'm afraid the RRP for Transonic will be significantly higher. Some models are alreay available online, but I have no clue about availability. I have found the top two models here: https://challenge-sports.de/product-cat ... fuji-2019/

Unfortunately this is true, I was recently provided the below figures.

1.1 - $7,999
2.1 - $5,399 (disc)
2.2 - $4,999 (rim)

I’m unsure about the specifics and these are NA MSRP. I had hoped that the Fuji would offer similar performance at a more reasonable price though it appears they might be out of my budget.

Well that sucks! I was hoping pricing would essentially make the choice between the Canyon Ultimate SLX 8.0 Disc/Canyon Aeroad SLX 8.0 Disc, TCR Advanced Pro Disc, and the Fuji SL/Transonic.

Any other suggestions I should be looking at? I'm not married to aero or all-arounder, I just want something that will come in ~7.5kg or lighter stock, has Discs, Electronic Shifting, and handles 30-32mm measured tires.

I know this is a better bike, but I'm going to be vain and picky and say I don't like the integrated seat post. If that 15% was off an Advanced Pro, I would think that is really competitive!

Yup! I’m also slightly disappointed and was hoping for a sub 4K aero disk setup. I guess I will keep my fingers crossed for a sale on the Aeroad or for the upcoming Aeroad SL.

I would wait for Focus Izalco Max, which is due to be released on September 5 (according to this site: http://www.bikefunn.com/roadbike/49299.html). Basically I am in the same sitatution and the Fuji was a strong candidate before the prices were announced.

Is the Izalco Max frame will be the same or it will be different?

To my door sounds much better :)

I’m a tad confused with the, “hybrid” wording in reference to the fork? Does that indicate it’s a carbon and aluminum steerer fork?

:)
