Stems available from 80 through 130mm in 10mm increments. Angles you have correct. We offer 40mm (20mm x 2) of spacers that the end user can choose to place under the stem or not.. Ease of adjustability and not locking you into one aerobar is a goal. Also budget, you're comparing the Norcom Straight to a frame that starts at $4500.. We felt a easily adjustable bike that performed well in the wind tunnel and that was more affordable to most people would appeal to more potential consumers.

Sorry - I had used 80-130, the 90 is a typo on the stems.
Budget is why I like the 2-series, I think it's going to be a nice addition to the market. I used the P5 for reference because it also uses a standard steerer allow normal bars, but with the super bar (with a single stem length) there is a greater fit range than your 6 stem lengths. I could do the same exercise for an SC7 with a nice bar if yo would like pricepoint comparability.
What I'm disputing is the claim of a unique level of fit adaptability. Flipping stems is hardly a new concept, nor is it elegant. I'd tend to take it as indication of poor frame or bar selection. Afterall - with an ergostem and extension mounted pads (like the Oval 750 aeros) that allow huge pad setback I can 'fit' nearly anyone to my 56 P5.

Ultimately I'm just trying to point out that simply offering a redesigned elbow pad would significantly increase the fit range of the stock bar on this bike and allow a much better claim to a high level of adaptability.

Or make a small model with a 3D printer?

*drills some holes in the pad holder*

I only use home made cups/pads anyway so don't really care for my own purposes whether the manufacturer got the design right or not.
Hours of fun with the drill, grinder, files and spraycan.

However, I would still like to see manufacturers grasp the implications of what fit range means a little better. Superdave heralded a new phase of understanding for the industry a couple of years back but, with a couple of exceptions, we're still waiting.

When are these going to be for sale? I see that their website changed from "June" to "Summer" on the release date for certain models.

For sale? Now, I'd guess. Did you check with a Fuji dealer in your area? Delivery will likely depend on release dates of the 2014 components. You won't see Ultegra 6870 Di2 before October on any triathlon bike from anyone for example or SRAM RED22 RTC at all.

I was told that you're not going to get the bikes until "late Summer/Fall 2013" so I went in a different direction.

Ok, out of curiosity, what did you end up buying?

So, the Norcom Gay has finally come out of the closet? Fierce.

I give it three snaps in a Z-formation!

Just three words for that:
Dee. Li. Cious!


float , hammer , and jog

Which frameset did you get? What did you build it with?
I see the bike available through performance bike.com
But they only have the 2.3 2.5 I wish I could get only the frame and build myself.

Have you thought about going to an authorized Fuji dealer to I quire about ordering one? There's this little box on the web page called "Dealer Locator".

Performance is the closest dealer. I could go see if a frameset is an option. I wish someone had them in stock, close. I'd love to see in person.
It's close in price to speed concept 7, or p2. I like the way it looks. But, for the money is it the best bet.

He reviewed but didn't ride it...

I agree with his comments on the bars though, they were the first things I replaced on mine.
