My '20 Emonda ALR - love this bike, and it's 15 lbs....not bad for an aluminum frame w/ 50mm wheels.

Love it! Impressions on the Hyper wheels? the ALR seems like a great frame to build up. Is it a H1 or H2 fit? My problem with Trek is most are H2 and I cant get the front end low enough.
thanks!

Never see Storck's around, so nice you're representing locally
I rode the same bike in Seoul for a few weeks, every day! Loved the frame (Storck is quite popular in Seoul)

I bought this one just before Christmas from a guy in Las Vegas. It's been a really joy to get familiar with. I also like the fact that it's not like anyone else's bike

Yep, you definitely don't see many of them. Riding here in So Call you see almost everything, but a Storck is more on the rare side. Beautiful bike.

I think it's like an H1.5? I removed the stock headset cap that came with the frame/fork and put on a lower profile one I took off another bike to get the bars a bit lower (since the Enve stem drop is kind of mellow). I love the Winspace wheels. Like any deeper wheel, in super windy/gusty conditions it's a handful, but my old Enve 3.4's were WAY worse in the wind than these 50mm wheels. The Winspace wheels are much more predictable in most conditions. They're also pretty fast too, and feel good when climbing (both in and out of the saddle). Really tested out the brake track today descending from the Hollywood sign here in LA back down to civilization (about 1,200 feet in 3.3 miles), and it held up without any issues. The brake track does look a bit shinier now though than before the ride lol. This Emonda is quite the climber though.....I love it. Oh and with the proper air pressure (I run 75 psi front/ 80 psi rear on 25mm tires as I'm around 148 lbs), the bike itself is comfortable. Pretty much no need for carbon, really.
