Blue Norcross SL Frameset
The Blue Norcross SL Frame has been spotted in its natural habitat as first across the finish line of the National CX championship...If that's not a ringing endorsement of the Norcross SL as no-holds-barred, mud-chomping victory machine than we don't know what is.There's a reason champion riders choose Blue Norcross SL: it's super light, super stiff, super responsive...so much so, that your whole CX-perience will be transformed. It's simple. This CX animal is made with aggressive 30T carbon fiber a.k.a. designed for uncompromising performance when it matters most.
  • Aerus Composites 30T high modulus carbon fiber frame is lightweight and stiff and includes integrated CX derailleur routing braze-on's and a rear cantilever hanger
  • Oversized tubing for superior lateral stiffness, vertical compliance and tracking
  • Aerus Composites C4CX carbon fiber cyclocross fork provides plenty of front end stiffness and vibration dampening to lessen the effects of fork chatter when braking
  • 1-1/8" to 1-1/2" tapered carbon steertube makes the fork stiffer and provides a more durable build
  • BB30 bottom bracket shell is super beefy to minimize frame flex when you're out of the saddle on hard effort
  • CX geometry makes shouldering the bike easy when running or hoping over barricades

      These other reviews are nonsense.

        Comments about Blue Competition Cycles Blue Norcross SL Frameset:

        Buyer no need to beware. This frame set is near perfect. Other reviewers have issues with the BB30 (easy solution, grab a Praxis adaptor), or the seat post clamp coming with the brake hanger. Neither are an issue for me. Wheels come off fine during races, all you do is unhook the straddle cable for the brakes. Really easy to do. Frame is stiff, light and handles like a dream. Also Nashbars shipping was nice and quick.

        Only issue I have is a subpar paint job. My drive side fork is losing paint for no reason at all.

        I love this frame but it has some issues

              Comments about Blue Competition Cycles Blue Norcross SL Frameset:

              I've had this frame for about 1 year and am mostly satisfied. The frame is stiffer than any I've ever owned. It corners great and it climbs like a champion. I use it on the road and dirt and it is my favorite ride.

              That being said, I hesitant to recommend this frame because of 2 issues.

              First, the clearance for the brake pads is too tight. Brake pads hit on stays and fork and make it very difficult to replace a wheel when the tire is inflated. This is not practical for doing CX races.

              Second, and more serious, the bottom bracket shell is BB30. BB30 bottom brackets creak and this frame creaks more than any I've ever owned. I have had a constant battle with this frame to keep the bottom bracket from creaking. If you can avoid it get something else besides BB30. It is not worth the hassle.

                Yes, this is the J. Page signature model he won the U.S. National Cyclocross Championship on! Mine is the black/yellow/white with his signature on the chain stay. the only thing different from the picture is the rear brake cable stop is part of the included Tecktro seat clamp and not a molded in seat stay bridge. That design put Page on the podium so I guess it's good enough for me! Just finishing the buildup but the frameset is super light and first quality. Do your research and you won't believe they are offering this at this price! By the way, Blue has new financial backers and they are back in business!

                Comments about Blue Competition Cycles Blue Norcross SL Frameset:

                The frameset I just received from Nashbar is not the same as the one in the photo. Yes it is a Blue Norcross SL but it does not have the integrated rear brake cable mount. Included in the box was a Tektro seat clamp cable hanger.

                I read on the Blue Competition Cycles Facebook page that they have gone out of business. So no warranty if you have problems with the frameset

                This was probably an old frame, a display model or a prototype in Blue's inventory, which Nashbar bought when Blue went under.

                While this is not a deal breaker and I'm sure the frameset will work fine, it's frustrating to spend over a thousand dollars and not get what I paid for. I searched the interwebs and have not been able to even find an image or photo of the frame I received.
