Customer reviews for Fuji Track Elite 2013 Track Bike

Fuji Track Elite 2013 Track Bike

Featuring patented RIB technology in the down tube and fork blades, the Fuji Track Elite is designed for off-the-chart stiffness which transfers into off-the-chart responsiveness. Fuji are the first track bike maker to feature a tapered head tube and fork giving the sprinter improved power transfer. Designed in the wind tunnel, the Track Elite has an internal seat bolt binder that not only adds to its sleek lines, it also improves its aerodynamics. They've added solid, stainless steel dropout faces so constant gear changes don't ruin this important wheel-frame contact area.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
I've got absolutely no regrets about buying this bike. The spec is really close to what I would chosen if I was building it from scratch ie, 3T bars and Dura Ace drivetrain. The wheels are a bit obscure but they're great quality and light.
It's taken me a little while to set up my ideal position but after flipping the stem and adjusting the seat height several times it's starting to feel really good. I was a bit worried by the graphics which look a bit OTT in the pics but at full size they calm down and I'm coming round to the looks, especially the matt finish.
One little gripe was that whoever built the bike up didn't attach the valve extenders properly. They left the valve open but not fixed open so they eventually vibrated themselves closed! I had no option but to remove the tubulars, I'm glad I did because the gluing job wasn't great and looked like it had been hurried. While I re-glue them I'm using a pair of cheap track clinchers to train on and will save the deep rims for racing.
Overall it's a great frame and fork with no compromises made on the components - quite a rare thing! The full price is too high but with the current discount it's decent value.

Super stiff, very responsive, looks amazing

Posted21 February 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, stiff, fast
In the few weeks I've had this bike I've realised that I have been missing out on life. My old bike feels like a soggy biscuit compared to this Ferrari like beast.
The whole package really is Olympic level quality. Dura ace components, 3T Scatto bars, Oval wheels.
Really fast super aero wheels, incredibly stiff and smooth components.
Pleasantly surprised to have it turn up at home completely built and ready to ride!
Having been looking for something better than the current crop of £1000-1200 carbon bikes on the market such as Dolan's Forza or DF3 or the cheaper Planet X, these Fuji's are on a par with the more expensive Cervelo P3 and I expect we'll see many of these at the World Track Champs in Minsk, and then at Rio in 2016.
