Fuji Cross 1.5 Cyclocross Bike – 2016
Fuji Cross 1.5 Cyclocross Bike – 2016. Getting muddy has never been more fun. The Fuji Cross 1.5 cyclocross bike takes full advantage of the revival of aluminum frames to make a bike that’s more fun, more durable, and a better value than pretty much anything else out there. The heart of the bike is the A6-SL custom butted alloy frame, with a BB86 bottom bracket and tapered headtube. This makes for a stiff, fast, and lightweight bike that can take all of your pedaling energy and turn it into forward motion with ease. Upfront, an FC-770 Cross carbon fiber fork features disc tabs and a tapered alloy steerer. Having a great bike is nothing without great components though, and the Fuji Cross 1.5 delivers with a durable and reliable groupset from Shimano. The updated Shimano 105 5800 groupset brings the power of disc brakes and 11-speed shifting to this bike, giving you better stopping power in all weather conditions and terrain, and an improved range of gears to suit any course. 105 5800 takes the 11-speed lessons that Shimano learned with their pro-level Dura-Ace 9000 groupset, and brings it down to a more budget friendly price. You gain a few grams, but retain the excellent ergonomics, and game-changing front shifting performance. An Oval Concepts 520 crankset with 46/36 chainrings gives you classic CX gearing, so you’ll be right at home on race day, or out exploring your local gravel routes. The TRP Spyre disc brakes also provide powerful, easily modulated stopping performance, even in wet or excessively muddy conditions. Coupled with 160mm front and 140mm rear rotors, the Spyre brakes are capable of tackling everything from a muddy November CX course to fire roads to some light singletrack. Wheels and finishing kit are supplied by Oval, with Oval 300-series alloy stem, seatpost and handlebars,and R500 saddle. Vera Corsa DPD22 wheels are light and durable, and are all wrapped up in super premium Challenge Grifo 700×32 knobby tires, so it’s pretty much ready to race straight out of the box.
