2010 Storck Aero 2 TT Bike Preview Brad: This is Brad Culp with Triathlete Magazine. We’re here at Inter Bike at the Storck Booth with their new Aero 2 Triathlon Bike. A beautiful bike, there’s a lot going on here. Let’s start with the front of the bike. This is Marcus Storck one of the designers. What going on with the fork? Marcus: The fork is a special off-fork where we have a system integration which means we have the brake built into the fork. And it’s very aerodynamic. It’s superlight and super stiff. The weight of the fork including the brake is 310 grams. Brad: Wow and then obviously one of the most striking features of the bike is this integrated stem system. What was the inspiration there and why is this so fast? Marcus: Inspiration fast was a fighter from the Second World War, US Fighter by the way which has the tanks on the outside so we’ve called this handle bar the Zeitjager into Time Hunter and the inspiration was to have something which is very fast again. With the aerodynamic, very light so we’re shooting for 420 gram on the complete handle bar and as you see, you can have spacer stocked underneath here with the system integration to the hatch tube. So you can increase your height and also the height of the arm rest. Brad: Very neat, now moving to the back of the bike a lot more aero features going on here. Again, the rear brake is shielded from the wind and you’ve even hidden the Shimano Di2’s Battery Pack behind the saddle. Tell us what’s going on with the rear triangle here and with the rear brake. Marcus: We have also there a system integration which means, we have integrated the Carbon Fiber lift spring brake. The brake weighs only 50 grams which is the cert of a regular brake system because we’re using the space as a part of the brake system. It has an increased power. It has a reduced weight and a better aerodynamic of course. Brad: Alright again, that’s Marcus Storck from Storck Bikes brand new Aero 2; you’ll see Faris Al-Sultan riding in Kona this year and to me it looks pretty fast.
