Whether you’re looking for a bike to commute to work on, go about a local town or city, or start embarking on those longer road excursions, the Fuji Spotif 2.3 Road bike is a terrific entry level bike.
- Fuji A2-SL Aluminium Frame
- Shimano Claris 2×8 speed groupset
- FSA Tempo 50/34T chainset
- Alex alloy rims
- Vittoria Zaffiro V tyres
The bike is built on a robust aluminium frame that is both light and sturdy. The Sportif has a longer wheelbase and a taller headtube similar to Fuji’s top-level endurance bike, the Gran Fondo, to efficiently position the rider on the road, decreasing arm fatigue and back strain.
Fuji’s mid-level aluminium, double-butted profile frame tubes help to create a lightweight frame that is extremely durable. Wave seatstays disrupt and diffuse road vibration and provide a slight vertical flex increasing your comfort on the bike and smoothing out your ride.
The Shimano Claris 8-speed group set provides easy-to-operate, precise, and light-action shifting for a perfect gear range for those long drags or quick descents. For improved aerodynamics, longer cable life, and a clean aesthetic, cables are routed inside the frame tubes.
If the descents get too fast, the dual pivot rim brakes will give you complete confidence in your stopping ability. The fast-rolling Vera Corsa wheels are paired with Vittoria Zaffiro tyres that are puncture-resistant and durable.
Are you wanting to use this bike for commuting? Sportif features rack mounts strategically positioned so you can add panniers to carry any extras on your trip into the city; fender attachments will also make this bike into an all-weather machine.
