Don is busily assembling the 2014 model Fuji’s we received. The shipment includes the Crosstown 2.5 and Crosstown 26 1.3. The Crosstown 2.5 is part of Fuji’s hybrid series-bikes that have 700c wheels. The main change to the Crosstown series is the 2014’s use Fuji’s A2-SL custom butted aluminum alloy for the bikes main frame. The bike will be lighter and hill climbing will be easier.
The Crosstown 26 1.3, the comfort bike with 26″ wheels will also have some changes for 2014. This model is perfect for a novice rider or someone returning to cycling. In addition to using Fuji’s A2-SL custom butted aluminum alloy for the frame the Crosstown 26 1.3 uses Shimano Revo shifters-a twist shift type shift lever. The shift levers include a clear display letting you know what gear you are using. The bike also uses a Promax dual pull brake lever. The lever is installed on the right side of the handlebar by the shift lever. This dual pull brake lever applies both the front and rear brakes when you lightly squeeze the brake lever.
