Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great bike and Service
This bike is superb. I bought it for my son to commute to work on and I think it will be perfect. It seems like a quality item, understated but solid and functional. The Nexus hub gears work faultlessly. This is the third bike I have bought from Chain Reaction plus countless bits and pieces and I've always been very happy with the service. Can't fault them at all. Considering getting one of these bikes myself now.

Had this bike a couple of weeks now and have to say that it is superb value for money if you are after a bullet-proof city commuter. The kit is all well made, much of it Fuji or unbranded stuff specific to the bike. If you are a bike upgrader limited opportunities here, but then there is no reason to. The star is the Nexus hub that works fantastically well and I find that the gearing is perfect for a fast road commute, would struggle with long steep climbs.
I bought a 19" version, expecting it to be medium in size. It comes up a little short in the top tube than I was expecting. I can manage after some adjustment, but if you are over 5'8" I would recommend the next size up. The bars are narrow flat ones and the brakes the wrong way round (easy enough to remedy) for the oddities in size and brakes it gets 4 stars, but is so close to a 5

Мне очень понравился. Качество всех деталей и компонентов Fuji Aloy очень порадовало. Не ожидал что его вес окажется таким небольшим: 12,2 кг (без крыльев и подножки). Я взял 48см(center to top)- это как М или 19". От пола до верхней трубы 74-77см. Планетарная втулка без ножного тормоза, и это хорошо для меня). Одно крепление для бутылочки. В комплекте звонок и катафоты. Надеюсь эта информация будет полезной, т.к. мне её при покупке очень не хватало. За эту цену отличный городской велосипед с хорошей геометрией! 5 звёзд!

The hub gears are the main reason for buying this bike if you are after a simple to maintain town bike, and at this price it is a bargain! The rest of the bike is well made with solid kit all aimed at creating a robust bike that is not that heavy. The frame will only accept V brakes, so an upgrade to discs is not possible if you wanted to, however the Nexus hub would make any upgrade difficult in any case. This being a mainland European specced bike means that the brakes are the wrong way round for the UK market coupled with the typically narrow flat bars, oh and those odd inner tube valves. The frame comes up a bit short in the 19" (48cm) version compared with what I would of expected of a medium size. Comes with pedals, but no fitting kit as CRC apparently provide with some bikes.
Buy if you want a good town commuter with hub gears and are happy to swap brakes around and possibly the bars. Bear in mind that the Nexus hub alone would set you back half the cost of the bike. would be a 5 but Drops a point for the brake faff.
