Expert Review

The Fuji Roubaix 1.1 is unique on this list because it was designed specifically to be a racing bicycle for the consumer who didn’t want to spend money on a full carbon frame. Fuji instead found other ways of improving the bicycles performance like designing an asymmetrical chain stay which gives a more consistent power transfer to the wheels, so every pump of the pedals transfer energy more efficiently into your ride.

The Roubaix also offers the best drivetrain on this list with a mixture of Shimano 105 and the upgraded Ultegra rear derailleur and shifters. Fuji also upgraded the tires offering Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tires, which are the lightest on this list; however lightweight and fast design does have the trade off of being a less durable tire for everyday street riding.Rating: 4.5/5
