Fuji Sportif 2.3 C Road Bike – 2014
Road cycling is about more than just going fast. It’s about discovering the joy of the journey, and taking in the simple pleasure of riding. If that sounds good to you, then the 2014 FujiSportif 2.3 C road bike should be looking pretty good to you. This bike features Fuji’s A2-SL frame, which is stiff, lightweight and durable, but also has a more upright and relaxed riding geometry that won’t push your body to the limits on longer rides. The FC-770 carbon fiber fork gives some zip to the bike, but also soaks up road vibrations for a more comfortable ride. Finally, Shimano Claris and Sora 8-speed components and a compact crankset give you plenty of gears to get over almost any hill.
- Fuji A2-SL alloy frame is stiff, durable and lightweight
- Long and lean geometry gives you a more upright riding position for increased comfort
- FC-770 carbon fiber fork is lightweight and smoothes out road vibrations
- Shimano Claris and Sora 8-speed shifters and derailleurs provide accurate, reliable shifting performance in any conditions
- Oval Concepts parts are durable and reliable
Raffle drawing will take place at the end of October 2014. Date and time TBA.
The Community Entertainment District proposal is approved by Linwood, Columbia Tusculum and the East End.
