Fuji Bicycles Altamira LTD - 2011 $0.00
Fuji's service course in Spain is roughly 30-40km from a cave known as the Altamira. The cave contains what is said to be the first prehistoric paintings discovered in the world, making it a revered site for local Spaniards. It was only fitting, then, that when Fuji decided to sponsor Spanish team Geox-TMC, it provided the riders with a new frame bearing this legendary cave's name.
With the Altamira, Fuji's objective was to build a frameset suited specifically for grand tour racing. At the time, the majority of Fuji's pro riders were aboard its rigid SST (Super Stiff Team) sprinter-specific frame, which was really a 'quiver' frameset. The engineers knew their athletes would benefit more from a well-rounded workhorse frame, so they began collaborating directly with its team Geox-TMC pro riders during the development process. They used real-time race feedback gathered from the Spanish squad to refine its new frame platform, eventually leading to the Altamira design. The two-year R&D process proved to be a success, as Geox's Juan Jose Cobo relied on his trusty new steed to claim the top spot in 2011's grueling Vuelta. His bicycle handled beautifully, reassuring the Fuji team that their hard efforts produced the world-class race machine they had originally set out to build.
Fuji built its top-end Altamira from a high-modulus D-6 carbon blend. This is the highest level of carbon material Fuji manufactures, capable of producing incredibly low tube weights that deliver a stiff yet compliant road feel. Fuji applied the D-6 carbon to the Altamira using a three-tube -- top, head, and down tube -- monocoque front end, which was then molded to a second monocoque section that encompasses the bottom bracket and chainstays. The IST integrated seat tube and seatstays were molded separately, with all of the components assembled together using a modified tube-to-tube joining process. According to Fuji, the joints of the frame were strategically placed in low stress areas of the frame to provide a light, stiff, and vertically-compliant ride.
By working with Geox pro riders, Fuji's engineers were able to tweak the carbon tube shapes for an optimal race-tuned feel. They kept the lower chassis incredibly stiff by mating the large down tube and chainstays to an oversized press-fit BB86 bottom bracket. The enlarged juncture created an ultra-stiff pedaling platform, which, for you, means an efficient transfer of power directly into your rear wheel. Moving up from this section of the frame, Fuji paired a tapered top tube and slender seatstays for an overall balanced road feel. The result in this matchup is a rigid lower half of the frame combined with a more compliant upper section.
Rounding out the front of the frame, a tapered 1-1/8in to 1-1/2in head tube provides maximum rigidity and predictable handling. The fork Fuji developed specifically for the Altamira was molded from a lightweight FC-330 carbon layup. Below its tapered carbon steerer, Fuji's signature flared upper-blade fork design, which works to provide both front end rigidity and aerodynamics, flows down into the slender carbon dropouts.
The frameset includes an FSA No. 42 integrated headset with carbon top cover, a braze-on front derailleur mount, and carbon dropouts (with a replaceable hanger) at the rear of the frame.
The Fuji Altamira LTD frameset comes in at a claimed weight of 955g. It is available in 44cm, 47cm, and 50cm sizes, and in the Team Geox colorway.

good day. I want the warranty and whether...
I want the warranty and whether the bikes are real or are replicas. Comes as seen in the photos?
the payment can be made by credit card?
I want to know the availability in size M (50)
And good day to you as well, Edwin,
It's the real deal, an amazing deal, as shown, available in the size 50, and credit cards are the preferred means for conducting transactions.
And for your inspection and reading pleasure, aside from the manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty, here's the link to Backcountry's warranty and return policy:
Just one question for you: Where are you looking to have it shipped to?
The price might seem too good to be true, but this site is as legit as it gets. Top notch, and with customer service second to none.
There's nothing to fear about lack of authenticity for this site. There are no imitations, just real products at reasonable, and in this case ridiculous prices.
