- I think it looks *so* much better than the D6. Likely more aero too.
- The bar looks thick. Wonder if it is aero?
- The cables hanging under the bar don't look so good. I guess they really stand out because they're hidden everywhere else.
- The battery on the seat post is a bit weird. Let's maybe figure out how to get it IN the seat post.
- Overall, great stuff from Fuji. I'd ride the heck out of one of these!
'Fuji’s development team’s stance is that a stand-alone bicycle that tests well in the wind tunnel, but does not adapt to allow a rider to attain an aero position, enabling their body to produce maximum power, will produce poor results come race day.'
I am pleased that they aren't doing the ridiculously short front-centres that afflicted the small sizes of the D6. But the progression in x,y is not particularly consistent.
A bit disappointing that the release I've being getting annoying emails about for weeks has every model with the same RRP.
The development process appears to be well conceived and the bike overall looks to be a much better effort than the predecessor.

This can't be serious... I mean look at that aero-brick front setup. Cables dangling everywhere and the thickest aerobars I've ever seen (yet not full of cables routed internally)
I like the front brake cable enters the head tube, but why not the rest of the cables also.
Design looks like a transition, though I that design is 6 years old by now. And Fuji did not "update" the design to today's standards. Its like the bizarre child of a Chinese open mould and a Specialized Transition.
What is the battery doing on the seatpost? For a new generation bike you would expect the battery to be hidden.
Where are the opportunities to mount bentobox/computer/BTA bottle/repair kit etc??? All these things have been given a thought on new gen. bikes such as Speed concept, Shiv, new p3 and p5...
I found this strange as well. How hard is it really to put top tube bosses?
With the current drag numbers, it would be hard to recommend this bike over something proven like a Trek Speed Concept 7 series or Specialized Shiv.
It's not perfect, but it is a huge improvement over the D6. But, as you might imagine, we're also a bit disappointed with this ^ .

Theres literally only bosses on the down tube. No bosses on the seat tube even. Thats just silly.

With all the crap that triathletes seem to love to attach to their rigs the lack of a well-thought-out accessories mounting system seems a curious omission.
Crowded marketplace and if it's not priced below the competition I can't see how it'll succeed.
Oh, and that aerobar is utterly hideous. I mean, c'mon.
Nice aero brake integration though.
