With Performance Bike having financial troubles and closing stores, etc., you may have trouble getting any warranty service done on the Fuji, Kestral or Breezer brands.

Not quite apples to apples, but I have a 2013 Absolute that has been rock solid.

If you had not yet purchased this Fuji, now might be a good time. Noticed my local Performance Bikes had started reducing the bike prices by 40% from original sale price a few days ago. Not sure if all Performance Bikes are falling suit or just this one.

Meaning this $350 Fuji can now be had for $210. Don't expect warranty or service though since the shops are closing.

I just used some points I had at Performance to get myself a 2018 Absolute 2.1 and I like so far. Putting it together has been fairly straight forward and it rides well.

Update: I just took it out on some packed gravel for a 10 mile ride and it was fairly comfortable. Certainly worth the price it was listed (under 400$).

Iíve had mine for about three months and have been very pleased with it. I know it has entry level Shimano components, but Iím a newbie and certainly wonít be a high mileage rider. I considered it a bargain at $349.
