|The Roubaix Pro has nice low BB, relaxed 73 degree angles, and longish top tube, good for long distance, all day comfort on a fast, resilient steel frame. I've always liked Fuji's. They've been around for a long time. They're perhaps the best Japanese manufacturer, with geometry comparable to LeMond's over here. Nice bike.|

|As usual, the Japanese take a lot of pride and put a lot of thought in their finished product.|

|Thanks for the replies. I think the bike is made in Taiwan, though. Roger H|
|So what if the bike is made in Taiwan,||guido|

|It's spec'd by the intelligent Fuji guys in Japan.
Taiwan has learned alot since World War II about quality control, Giant being a good example. A few years ago, Giant was the largest bicycle factory in the world, churning out bikes for the American fitness market, and many more for the Third World transportation markets in Asia and Africa. They know what they're doing.
In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Giant made the Fuji frame in question.
