The $___ Fuji Sportif 1.9 Disc Loves Long Days in the Saddle

I felt at ease cruising along undulating back roads and taking in the landscape without neck strain. The bike’s aluminum alloy frame with a carbon fork was light enough that it didn’t hold me back when climbing, and stiff and responsive without too much harshness over rough terrain.
