Fuji will unveil their new tri bike this weekend, but a pair of pros rode the bike at St. Anthony's. The first look:
Fuji is continuing the trend of semi-integration by equipping the Norcom Straight with a standard steerer tube-and-stem aerobar attachment system. Instead of forcing a specific stem upon the bike, this machine will accept any 1-1/8th inch stem. Seemingly any standard aerobar can be mounted to the bike. This will also allow the bars to be elevated using spacers, permitting simple fit adjustment and a wide positioning range. While it lacks the seamless integration of a bike such as the Trek Speed Concept 9 Series, the Norcom Straight’s toptube extends above the top of the head tube, creating a partial extension of the stem and erasing the gap behind the steerer tube.
