When you build the dreamiest of dream bikes it’s only fitting that you have one of your own. Fellow Storck fan and aficionado Jesse James has put together the absolute stealthiest and classiest ride. The Storck Aerfast Platinum sits first at the head of the Storck family table. It’s a no compromise aero beast that is the culmination of everything Markus Storck and has seen no expense spared in creating the platinum edition. It's no wonder this frameset was the winner of the Road.cc Superbike of 2015/16. The profile of the Aerfast just screams stiff and fast. The angles produced by the very distinctive geometry of a Storck make for an unmistakable stance. And that ride!
Look under the stem. Take a close look and see what you don't see. This is not your regular Di2 setup. Jessie has modded the install to hide the Shimano Di2 A Junction box within the frame. This leaves the bike with an even cleaner stance. This is the work of a top shelf mechanic that pays attention to every detail.
Jessie offered me the chance to I throw a leg of this dream bike and take it for a spin around the shop. Of course I obliged. I’d try to express my opinion in words but I don’t think you would understand the gleeful screams I made while sprinting this thing down the street and dive bombing the corners. My apologies to the neighbors for having to witness that. When you want to get up and go, it goes. When you want to attack a corner, you better hold on… tight. The ride of a Storck is truly unique and the Aerfast Platinum Edition takes everything to the limit. If you've never ridden one you should seek one out and get on it.
If you want to see this thing out in the wild catch up with Jessie on a group ride held on Saturdays out of the shop. Don’t forget to bring something to mop up your drool.
