Combining aero design, endurance-race comfort, and powerful stiffness into one package isn't a simple task, or one that's easy to describe, but, like the good Germans they are, Storck came up with a name for such a contraption: the Aernario. In reality, the Aernario concept isn't totally new, but the Aernario Disc Road Bike Frameset is, having been redesigned to be mounted with disc brakes that let you ride harder, faster, and more confidently. Before we get into the brakes, though, let's cover the frame. Storck designed the Aernario Disc to be an endurance racer, which means it has to be aerodynamic--small amounts of drag add up over hundreds of miles--and comfortable, for obvious reasons. Trouble is, aero frames are notoriously stiff and uncomfortable. To solve this quandary, Storck designed the Aernario with a CFR/UD unidirectional carbon-fiber layup. By laying all the carbon fibers down in parallel, Storck gave the Aernario serious stiffness, but also dramatically improved its ability to dampen vibration, so you can ride it hard and long without serious discomfort. Additionally, the frame is molded in monocoque, a one-piece construction that saves weight be reducing the number of joints and amount of material used. Aerodynamic efficiency comes, simply, from the shape of the tubes. The Aernario employs what's called Sectional Aerodynamic Shaping, which manages to endow the frame with an aero teardrop profile that takes shape horizontally instead of vertically, so you get aero benefits without the unflattering aero look. Each tube also features Storck's Proportional Tubing Concept, which basically means every wall, diameter, and taper is finely tuned to ensure smooth ride quality and efficient power transfer. As for the brakes, Storck didn't just slap on discs and call it good. It added a rear thru-axle and burly bottom bracket to take the added torsion of stronger brakes without flexing, which in turn allowed the seatstays to be scandalously thin, which me...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
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.
