I am interested in a Fuji Aloha TT/Tri bike. I'm in college so I dont have a lot to spend, and I'm tired of trying to turn my CAAD5 into a "tri bike." I have not heard much about Fuji bikes and can't find many reviews. Is this Fusion X frame on their bikes solid? Just comments in general on Fuji bikes would be appreciated, thanks.

... it is possible that you can convert your 'Dale for Tri...

... much will depend on your personal needs and course topography.

In general, Fuji bikes are well made and well reviewed... the Aloha has been around for quite some time. What year Aloha were you looking at, how is it spec'd and how much? Specifications have probably changed over the years.

Be the bike.

I am looking at a 2003 Fuji Aloha with 105 and an FSA crank.

I want a seperate bike for tri's and afternoon TTs.

Fuji makes a bike with very good value, especially in the 105/Ultegra price range. The Aloha is a good example of the value they bring to this price range. Good bike, money well spent.

I agree with the other post about converting your CDale into a TT bike - often a new seatpost and stem is all you need. See your local bike shop for a $75 fit, plus the stem and post and you can get a great setup for $150 total.

I realized that wasn't your question, though. I had a Fuji and loved it. My teammate has a Fuji and loves it. I've never heard a bad thing about Fuji's, save their occasional interesting color scheme. Great bikes. Great value.
