Who Is Fuji?

Fuji started in Japan in 1899 by Okazaki Kyūjirō and a year later was branded as Nichibei Shōkai. In the beginning Fuji was an importer and distributor for American bikes and parts, until World War I. After they started manufacturing their own bikes and by the 1920s they were the most popular bikes in Japan.

In the 1950s, they began importing to America and quickly became a favorite bike for enthusiasts and casual riders alike. Their popularity and sales continued to climb until the dollar fell and they had to move production to Taiwan. By the 1990s they had declared bankruptcy.

ASI bought the company and the rights and began production once again. Fuji, the innovator of titanium frames, with the backing of ASI has a firm grip on the market and their bikes are once again regarded as top tier in each of the four major price categories.
