Fuji City Bikes
Founded in 1899, Fuji is a Japanese manufacturer of bikes, taking it's name from the iconic Mount Fuji. Initially they imported US made bikes, but shortly afterwards began production on their own Japanese made range. By the 1920s, they had become the most popular bike manufacturer in Japan, and within the next decade had founded the first stage race in their home country, which was won on their bike. In the 1950's, export began to the US, and their brand reached huge popularity in the 1970s. Despite hard times in the 1990s, Fuji survived, and today produces a huge range of competitive Mountain, Road and Cyclocross Bikes.
I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
