Good looking alloy frame! Adjustable dropouts are a real nice touch!

I'd have never guessed it was a Specialized if there wasn't a shot of the head badge. I think it might be the first Specialized on here since I've been following this thread. Not bad looking, hopefully it's a sub £1200 bike though!

Edit. I just looked on their website. How wrong could I be?!? I notice there is a £1250 version. Bit expensive compared to the alternative brands.

They did a kinda aggro hardtail years back which I always felt was under appreciated as its geo, for the time, was not compared all the boutique competition.

Probably not the best value but it is Specialized after all......

Looks really clean. Nice lines. Threaded BB, internal routing, adjustable CS, brake caliper tucked in on the chain stays, two bottle holders, brushed aluminum and possibly light weight. I think that it will be a great trail bike for those that like all kind of riding. I am getting over long, low slack geo. I like the low part but too slack and too long makes them not so good climbers and that mathers for me as well.

And so it begins.. SRAM SX groupo on the 'comp' model specialized. At almost $1700...

The Fuse is a sweet bike. Frameset is well priced and if you're ok with alloy, it's pretty hard to go past. nothing proprietary and the geo is good.
