@Boonen - a couple of airports or concert halls or such would sit well, non?

Wow. Andy is right.

Is the stem wrapped to your original Schmolke bars, or are they different ones?

Gorgeous, but those KCNC brakes just aren't looking as good as the rest of the bike. The bike needs sexier brakes. :mrgreen:

Just curious on this newer version of the NoRa stem, are they made stronger than the previous versions (also now that the fibre is continuous over the rear of the stem). Is the inside fork tube clamping area aluminium or carbon?

I wanted to order this version with the Schmolke OS bar. Would they be able to bond this to a 31.8 bar?

Wow, outstanding job. Really well done. Really a pleasure to look at and the weight is pretty spectacular, too!

Brakes are such a personal thing and in my opinion should be judged by sex appeal, functionality, and then weight. I just find the KCNC to be fugly. That NoRa stem though - oh my - that's Damn Sexy.

The frame may be the unsexiest weight wise, but I think the shape of the tubes looks sick.

Ya, I like the frame too. Never heard of the company before, but I don't care about that. It's a good looking frame and the total weight of your bike is amazing. It's just a stellar build.

So how does the bar thing work? You send them the money and your bar + stem (to get the correct position) and you get a nice wrapped NoRa stem?

Anyone know how much it costs?

Does NoRa have a website? I googled and couldn't find one. I was curious about price as well. Not that I want one or can afford one - I am just curious. :wink:
