First look: Storck Aero 2

By Gary Boulanger, US editor | Monday, August 24, 2009 3.32pm

The carbon maestros at German-based Storck are introducing the 2010 Aero 2 time trial bike, a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 compatible-only machine they're calling their most aerodynamic ever.

Approximate frame weight is 1,200g with a 350g carbon THM Scapula fork and 220g seat dome. The 'fuselage' (frame, fork, bars, seat dome, brakes, stem/headset) will be priced around US$10,000.    

"Markus (Storck) plans to deliver Faris al Sultan his Aero 2 at Interbike for him to race in the Ironman in Hawaii in October," Dave Goeppner of Storck USA told BikeRadar.

According to Storck, unique features of the Aero 2 include a fully integrated carbon front and rear brakeset with preset carbon spring system/easy change brake pad cartridge system, new ergonomic and aerodynamic multi-adjustable Storck carbon time trial bar system (ideal for newly announced Di2 TT double-shifters), fixed seat dome with multi adjustable seat-angle (73-80°), fully integrated cable routings and adjustable rear dropouts.

Snug fit for air flow around the rear wheel.:
