The origins of Fuji bikes
Nichibei Fuji, now known as Fuji Bikes, has a rich and inspiring history that began in 1899. Founded in Japan, the company started its operations by importing American bikes.
In the 1920s, the company began manufacturing its own bikes, which were exported throughout Asia. It became the best-selling bike brand in Japan.
In 1971, the company expanded its reach beyond Asia by establishing Fuji America, the first Japanese bike brand to promote itself in the United States under its true name. This significant step allowed Fuji to solidify its reputation as a manufacturer of quality bikes, a reputation built on its innovations.
In 1973, the company introduced the Fuji Ace, the first mass-produced bike to use the revolutionary Shimano Dura-Ace groupset. This tradition of innovation continued in 1977 when Fuji introduced the S12-2, the world's first 12-speed bike with a 6-speed freewheel, a development that changed the industry.
In 1984, Fuji demonstrated its commitment to competition by sponsoring Mark Gorski, the gold medalist at the Olympic Games that same year, to join their elite racing team.
In 2004, Fuji launched its first all-carbon road bike, on which Judith Arndt won the World Championship, becoming the first woman to win a world title on a carbon fiber bike. Additionally, Regina Schleicher also won the World Championship in 2005 on a Fuji bike.
Over the years, Fuji has proven to be a leader in the cycling industry, continuously evolving and pushing boundaries to ensure that cyclists worldwide get the most out of their bikes.

The advantages of buying a refurbished Fuji bike
Buying a refurbished bike offers three main advantages:
The first is economic. By opting to purchase a used refurbished bike from Tuvalum, you can save from 20% to 60% compared to the price of a new bike.
The second is mechanical revision. While it's possible to buy a used Fuji bike from an individual, most platforms and second-hand product applications do not guarantee the condition of the items sold. You would have to trust a stranger and risk buying a bike with hidden damages. At Tuvalum, all bikes are meticulously checked and refurbished by our team of mechanics who ensure that each bike meets the same technical standards and approvals required by the European Union for new bikes. Additionally, they come with a one-year mechanical warranty and an 18-month buyback guarantee.
Another compelling reason to buy a refurbished Fuji bike is its positive impact on sustainable development. By choosing a bike that has already been manufactured, you contribute to reducing the ecological footprint generated by the purchase of a new bike. Did you know that a new bike produces a carbon footprint of 300 kilograms of CO2 during its manufacturing process?
