The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that Fuji’s best-selling Roubaix models have been ommitted from the 2011 lineup on our website. It’s not that we don’t like them or that they’d didn’t sell well last year - it’s because these special UK-only models were in the pipeline, exclusive to Evans Cycles!
We asked and Fuji obliged! Taking Fuji’s much acclaimed, best-selling 2010 Roubaix custom double-butted alloy frame and FC-770 C-4 high-modulus carbon fork with alloy steerer and mating them to Shimano’s Sora, Tiagra and 105 drivetrains, the Fuji Team models present themselves as the ideal road bike for selective racers or riders targeting longer days in the saddle. All come equipped with compact 34/50T chainsets for ample gear range and represent amongst some of the very best value-for-money you can find at these pricepoints.
The main difference with these UK-exclusive Team models and the stock Fuji Roubaix 2011 models is that they utilize the 2010 Fuji Roubaix frame and fork (non-tapered fork and headtube and conventional BB shell) to help keep the overall price down. ensure the bikes represent the best possible value without compromising too heavily on spec and features. The stock 2011 Fuji Roubaix models feature 1 .5 – 1 1/8” tapered fork and frame, press-fit BB’s (on the 1.0 and 2.0 models) and matching Shimano chainsets which results in a £100+ up-charge at the retail end in comparison to the equivalent Evans Team models.
So there you have it – a few slight tweaks with the spec to maximise value without sacrificing any of the great ride characteristics the Roubaix is reknowned for.
There’s x3 models on offer:
