Storck has made a habit of creating award-winning framesets, lauded for their blend of exceptional stiffness and feathery weight in the quest for the ultimate race machine. The 2017 Storck Aerfast Platinum Road Frameset continues this tradition as a nominee for road. cc's Superbike of the Year for the past two years and a lazer focus on getting to the finish line as fast as possible. Its aerodynamic design features pair with Storck's trademark stiffness and responsive handling to serve as the starting point for your next dream bike build. The Aerfast Platinum earns its naming convention with a closely guarded, proprietary blend of ultra high modulus and high modulus carbon to take its place as the lightest of the Aerfast line. This gives it the claim of being lighter than comparable top-end models from other brands. The frame also features Storck's Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping, which means the down tube profile is narrower and more droplet-like at the middle compared to the top and bottom sections. This reduces frontal surface area, which reduces drag, all without impacting frame stiffness or handling. A concealed seat clamp keeps excess bolts out of the wind and just plain looks good by providing a super clean transition from seat tube to seat post. At the rear, a direct mount brake tucks in behind the bottom bracket to provide stopping power without catching any wind. The rear triangle on the Aerfast Platinum is something of a revelation, featuring rear-facing dropouts which allow adjustability to customize the space between the wheel and seat tube based on the type of tires you prefer. This option means you'll maintain ride characteristics and snappy handling regardless of the tire. Storck also incorporates proportional tubing to provide a consistent level of aerodynamics and responsiveness across the size range. For an extra dose of stiffness, Storck opts for a beefy BB86 bottom bracket standard that will solidly transfer every bit of power to the drivet...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
