The fondo is supposed to be their endurance/race hybrid geometry. Standover height is perfect, and other 55cm bikes (this one is a 55) all fit me perfectly. I did try a 56 but couldn't stand over it. 54 felt short. I think it's the handlebars that are extra long. We moved the seat up to try and compensate for now. I rode it again today for 10 miles and was really comfy, but still had my hands sitting slightly behind the rubber grommets. It's definitely not UNcomfortable, now that I've gotten used to it, but I do think a short reach bar will be the perfect addition. In the position I rode today (webs of my hands near the end of the rubber brake covers), I was comfy and could have kept going if I didn't have to get to work.

They are QR, rear hub-axle is bent and you can see the cassette wobble; rear hub is D812SB. They are Novatec hubs, Laser spokes, older i19 rims which could use a true-ing as well, already have two-layers of rim-tape.

I'm a 180lb bro who bent the hub probably hopping stuff in a CX race, they would probably survive with Sonny on the bike. Cover shipping or send me a label and they're yours.

Reach on my bars is 83mm. I'm 5'10' - 5'11" but have a 32 inseam. I think Fuji might build their bikes more for the average person who has a longer torso than me. Either way, it's their M/L size, very similar to what i ride on the trek (medium size 17.5" frame"). Like I said, the bike itself doesn't feel too long, just my hands want to sit further back on the deep *** bars, which is doable with a shorter reach bar/shorter stem or a combo of the two.

I swapped from a 3T Ergonova to a Zipp SL-70 bar on my Stigmata and don't regret it.

for all you cheap-skates looking for carbon wheels- this company has a really good reputation for carbon MTB rims (I know nothing about the road stuff)... I believe it is a big Taiwanese carbon rim factory that started an in-house brand.

Those getting into the sport and who have an iPhone 4 wasting away in some drawer. And those who could use another cheap ANT+ heart rate monitor for their garmin:

Wahoo $10 ant+ HRM and the dongle for your older i-product. I just got this last night and confirmed the iphone4 Strava app reads the HRM, garmin cadence, and powertap G3. Does not read the newer magnetless garmin speed-only sensor though, but supposedly reads the older magnet speed/cadence combo sensors if you have that.

Cheaper option than an old Garmin Edge.

I ordered my carbon rims from them, also recommended by Emilio a few pages back. Still waiting on them. From what I've read online researching them, typical lead times are ~3 weeks. The customer service rep keeps emailing me confirming various parts of my order...do I really want "xxxx", is my shipping address really "xxxxxx", are you sure you want UD matte finish, etc.

John guesstimated and printed a mount for his TT bike but it's wobbly.

The bike side, with the bendy ears and such? No, sorry. I could model it though, next week, if you want.

I didn't model it because there's hundreds of mounts available. But I understanding wanting a specific mount that doesn't exist.

Not much difference, spec wise, between those bars. Just the feel of the bars different? Those Trey Cannondale bars I linked to have a flat top to them, which feels nice.

So what is typically considered a short reach bar in comparison to what I have? 50mm? 70?

About 70-85 mm. Check out ones from Zipp, Ritchey, 3T, FSA, etc. They all make quality compact/short alloy bars at a reasonable price.

first real ride on the new bike. LOTS of things learned, and I'm sure I'm not even scratching the surface yet. Did quite a few adjustments to everything based on YT video tutorials on setting up bike.

1) I need to start looking for helmet
2) I need to start looking for shorts/bib/shirt
3) I need real pedals (current ones are junk), and swap on the proper/sporty seat vs this soft cushy wide one
4) I need to rewrap the handlebars, pick up spare tubes, and a pump that actually works (got some cheapie at wally world, it's 100% junk)
5) likely need to buy headlight/taillight if I'm going to ride in the evenings

So far I'm still enjoying this

My opinions:
1. Synth, Kask, or Catlike, the the most comfy one with the greatest safety features (MIPS) (personal preference but I take concussion avoidance seriously)
2. Post above. I am about to do a run on kits, they will be sub $250 for a bib and jersey, leaving my team with friends and starting our own kit-related-thing which is not a "team"
3. lol @ people who run Look or SPD (all personal preference)
4. okay, my favorite pump is the nice on from Performance Bike
5. Knog Blinder is my choice, use it in the daytime as well. For a headlight, I have two Nightriders but wish I had the gigantor Spesh light.

It's nice that three years in, this hobby is still a ton of fun and relatively inexpensive.

One more thought. On the bike right now, there are 2 spacers under the stem and 1 over it. I asked the dealer where I got this if I could put the third spacer at the bottom to raise the bars up a bit but they said that for carbon steerer tubes its not recommended? Any truth to this? I'd try that first before I started messing with the bars and stem. I'm looking on Fuji's site and they show their assembled with the spacers all under the stem. It's free to do, and might help with the otherwise longer reach of the bars slightly by bringing me more upright

I actually did this yesterday on mine. It had 2 on bottom 3 on top, I put re-stacked them to 4 bottom 1 top, Raised the bar and it's way more comfy now and works just fine.
