Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The tires are lopsided, and the wheel decals extend into the brake track. Plus, it's got no brake levers or pedals.

Who could possibly ride this bike!?

Integrated brakes. No photos of the production bike that I can find.

Edit -- Estimated price is $10k for the frame and associated bits.

Foogly wheels, but a nice frame. Seems that the Plasma 3/Shiv look is a pretty one in the wind tunnel...

Expect to see it in the Ironman in Oct. Markus Storck is delivering one to Faris al-Sultan at Interbike.

Can't wait to see the details of the fully integrated carbon brake system.

The paint scheme of the entire bike is quite noisy, but it does look pretty fast.

Do buyers get some sort of advertising discount from Storck for wheeling around on this?

Yes because nobody wears or uses any branded products.

You don't recognize how the graphics can appear to be excessive?

Have I finally found the owner of this car?

Have you not seen a single pro-level bike in the past 10 years or so?

That is one of the fugliest bikes I have ever seen. It's up there with that experimental one that C-dale did a while back with the roller-blade wheels up front.
