The Fuji Feather Urban Bike is a single-speed bike with classic track bike styling, a comfortable Reynolds steel frame, drop handlebars and a comfortable riding position. Its rear wheel can be operated as a fixed or freewheel type, ideal for urban riding. In addition to providing a fun ride that is both fast and functional, the feather is ready to take you cruising around the city and to work in record time. The Reynolds CrMo (Chromoly) frame and Fuji CrMo fork, together with the Alex double-wall rims, allow you to make the most of your pedaling efforts while maintaining a pleasant ride and providing durability needed for riding on rough roads.
This is a magnificent machine at any price point, much alone one that falls below the £400 threshold. Purchase if you are looking for a reasonably priced city bike that is enjoyable to ride and easy to maintain. When it comes to bicycle brands, Fuji is one of the most established globally, and its product line is as extensive as that of any other manufacturer. The Feather is part of the company’s urban collection, with a price tag of £399/$530 for the steel-framed single-speed or fixed-gear city bike, which is quite inexpensive. So for a relatively low price, you get a beautiful, classic-looking bike that is both comfortable and quick to ride about the city.
Although there are no branded components included, which is to be anticipated at this price range, the included components feel durable and are all finished to a good degree, such as the classic quill stem and ‘aero’ type alloy Seatpost. That being said, despite its attractiveness, the post is quite short and provides little room for height adjustment, so you’ll want to make an informed decision when selecting a frame size. The forks have a flat crowned design that is quite old in appearance, yet they feel durable while being banged about the urban environment. In the form of a v-shaped alloy rim linked to a barely sealed ball bearing hub, Feather’s wheels are another method Fuji has managed to keep the bike’s price as low as possible. These hubs will perform flawlessly for years to come; the same is true of the ball-bearing threaded headset, which will last for years.
The bike comes fully equipped for single-speed or fixed-gear riding, with a free-wheel and fixed sprocket lockring included in the package, as well as Tektro brakes on both the front and rear wheels. The alloy brakes and levers, which are mounted on top of a classic road-shaped handlebar, provide ample stopping power while also providing many hand positions. However, it would have been nice to see a full run of bar tape instead of track grips, which only provide coverage for the drops of the bars. As a result, you’ll feel a true sensation of speed and responsiveness while riding through traffic while also enjoying equal proportions of comfort when sitting atop the cushioned vintage design saddle, which is color-matched to the grips for a retro appearance.
Although our frame was finished in a wonderful British racing-green hue, there are various paint options available for the Feather, which is somewhat of a rarity these days among major bike makers. Fuji also provides a chrome-plated version of the bike for the more flamboyant rider. There isn’t much that can be said about the Feather that isn’t positive. You get a fantastic value-for-money bike from a well-known and trusted brand, which is equipped with some high-quality components; the ride quality is superb, and it instills a great deal of confidence whether you’re fighting traffic or out enjoying a rural drive. The Seatpost length is similar to that of a vintage bike, and it is perhaps the most significant flaw in the design; other than that, the Feather is a joy to ride. It’s also a breeze to maintain, which is expected from a bike of this kind.
