I love my Norcom Straight 1.3. I also have a Fuji SST road bike that I also love. Both are really fast. Great value. If I had $10k to blow, maybe I would have gone with a Trek with my name on it, but I couldn't justify the extra money. Plus, no one else has it and I like to be different. If you buy it, make sure whoever did the build was not an idiot.
