The Absolute family of hybrid bikes are the most popular adult bike models that Fuji makes.
What makes these bikes so well received? Well, they do a lot of things really well, work for a lot of different terrain, riders and riding styles, and come packed with good features at great prices.
The Absolute 1.7 is a great pick for a fast and capable every day commuter bike. You ride in a comfortable, upright position while you keep an eye on traffic. The parts are tough, and the bike requires little maintenance besides keeping it clean and putting air in the tires. For hardcore commuting there is the 1.3, an upgraded disc brake version (which has hydraulic instead of mechanical disc brakes for even better stopping power).
All Absolute models work great for running errands, and can handle racks, baskets, and fenders. They’re stable with a heavy load on them, and you can ride it comfortably in regular clothes.
The Absolute is fast and fun for getting fit and riding with friends. It’s almost as light and efficient as a road bike, and it’s pretty off-road capable with just a change of tires.
