They really did a good job with this color scheme. I have a transonic and know someone with a Norcom 1.1 with glossy paint. The black on the 1.3 is flat black and looks awesome. Can't wait to get it built up

Sorry to say it, but good luck. Fuji will only work with a dealer, not direct to consumer. I love my bike but their customer service sucks. The LBS I bought mine from is closed now.

Does anyone know of any other brakes that will fit on the rear. I swap pads out with wheels and hate these brakes. Someone said there was a way to make an Ultegra brake work, but I can't find where I saw it.

Anyone switch out the back brake? If so, with what? I'm sick of these TRP brakes

Are those eyes at the top of the head tube?

Intentional or just a reflection, combined with the maw (i.e., the Fuji triangle) it makes for a very sinister-looking bike!

I am not sure what you are referring to.

That's hilarious! I love my fuji norcom straight. But I'd love it even more with pirate eyes!! I'm sure my kids' lego stickers can be repurposed.

This looks real sleek! Really like it. I have a CX3 Aerobar, and definitely looks a bit messy. Do you know if this would look similar with mechanical shifters? Also, how do you like the aerobar? Was it worth the investment?


Thanks!

Ryx523: I have only had the bike on the trainer so far. It is a bit cold here in Ohio right now. But on the trainer it feels great. I did have to move the bars as far back as possible for my position. It should look exactly the same with mechanical shifters.

Hey Norcom experts, I need some setup help.
I bought a used 1.3 frameset and building it into my TT bike to replace a Cannondale Slice.

I'm confused about the headset/stem assembly. My frame came with a slotted headset "spacer" and a flat one that looks like a top headset bearing cover. I also have the original stem (what a boat anchor!!). So if I want to run the top of the stem flush with the top tube, what combination of elements do I need to use? I can't find a manual for this bike anywhere.

you have fairly limited stems. Besides the OVAL 760 that it comes with, I believe the Thomson road stems will fit, and maybe some others now (long time since I checked) but overall it was designed with that 760 in mind to run it flush.

I am planning to use the original oval stem, I'm just not sure which parts I need to put in the stack below the stem. Sorry if this seems like a dumb question. I'm not new to working with bikes, but a lot of this front end is proprietary, and I don't know what is the right way everything fits.

I think I still have a .pdf of the manual. Drop me an email and I will try to dig it up for you.
