Fuji Finest 1.3 Disc Women's Road Bike - 2016. A bike should be easy to use, right? When you pedal? It goes. When you hit the brakes? Yep, it stops. However, some bikes take going and stopping to a whole new level. The Fuji Finest 1.3 road bike has a compact Shimano 9-speed drivetrain to go over nearly any grade of road and a set of disc brakes to stop your bike like no other kind of brake can. The Finest was created to handle rides both big and small, with comfort-road frame geometry, easy to use and durable components, and great styling to show off on the local scene during your weekend rides. Once you settle in over the Finest 1.3's top tube, you'll realize it's compact. The benefits of a compact frame are many, but a few key bonuses are the shorter distance to the handlebar when seated, which alleviates neck, back and wrist strain, while increasing your ability to handle the bike with confidence. The shorter seat tube means greater standover height, so when you pull up to a stop sign you can easily step off the bike with plenty of safe clearance between you and the bike. Also, a shorter top tube means you'll be riding more upright. That means you'll get a greater view of the road ahead and any objects around your bike while your ride. The frame itself is made out of lightweight aluminum and the fork is made of both carbon and aluminum, which reduces the bike's weight and helps to smooth out the vibration from the road. You'll quickly notice that the 9-speed STI Shimano Sora shifters have a comfortable, ergonomic feel and with a quick flick of the wrist, you'll change gears, depending upon the grade of the road. The Tektro road disc brakes brake on a set of rotors instead of the wheel rim, preserving the life of your wheels and increasing the bike's stopping power. The Finest 1.3 Disc is outfitted with a pair of Vera Corsa wheels and wide, comfortable Vera Helios tires with burly Phalanx puncture resistance. All of these features rolled up into one bike makes it easy to see why the Finest is so popular on weekend rides.
