Here's a little excerpt from the press release kit that came with the bike:

"In 1899 FUJI bike brand was born. In 1930 FUJI established the "Tour de Japan" which remains the premier race in Asia. In 1948 FUJI was present for the first Keirin races in Japan. Today FUJI has winning riders in Keirin, Olympic and World Road disciplines. Exactly 90 years after the birth of FUJI the OBEY campaign was launched. In 2007 Fuji and OBEY have come together to deliver a fixed gear bike that speaks of Fuji's history and timeless aesthetic while blending in the design element of OBEY. Mixing components of new and vintage makeup creates what we feel is a modern classic. From the lugged steel frame and Brooks saddle to the Miche crankset and OBEY graphics, every element has been carefully selected to reflect both Fuji and OBEY."
