may i also temper my previous response by saying the 'badass' racers here dont ride uber expensive bikes ( okay pinarello is expensive, but they sponsor one of the largest teams here and somehow have a 'cult' following. never really liked them myself, but hey... some people do) because they are replaceable if crashed. the race frame of choice among the cannondales ( the other major team around here other than the pinarellos) is the supersix, which can be gotten comparatively cheaply to top end frames now, the fuji SL/SST, the scott foil (my team) .
basically, if I raced, I'd hesitate to ride the storck because simply put, that kind of cash to replace a ruined frame is not something to be sniffed at. the look is slightly cheaper, so I'd consder that.
Hi, lowly cat 2 here. I road/raced/sweated upon/starred at/got dropped on/won on a Scenario 1.0 for two seasons, and it is the best handling bike I've ever encountered. Funnily enough, I really didn't care for it the first two weeks I had it. It was a lot twitchier than what I was used to. Then I descended on it.. Wow. I fell in love! I know that the .7 is probably a different beast, but if the geometry is anything like the Scenario 1.0, it's probably incredible. Racing on it was wonderful. I mean, it's truly a "race" bike. It descends.. incredibly. And crits were equally railable. The ride quality wasn't sublime, but I never got beat up on it. I'm now riding a BMC Team Machine which is extremely smooth, but not as racey as the Storck. It feels a bit boring by comparisos!
I think a lot of people on this forum tend to arm-chair quarterback bikes, so the advice of "you've gotta ride it" is of course ideal. However, Storck and Look are not brands you can generally demo from your LBS. I would probably get a Storck over the LOOK just because of how unique and incredibly it road, but I have a thing for LOOKs. It's a tough and great decision to have.
One other note. I agree that, generally Storck hasn't had the aesthetic appeal to me as some other brands. I really love the style of LOOK. However, Storck's have gotten a lot better looking in recent years. I particularly like some of their matte finishes as well as their mostly white schemes.
