Going O/T here, but does that mean its Peter Denk's fault that Cannondale are still having major issues with frames cracking?

Considering that the "stack" metric accounts for fork lengths, they are still incredibly long/low bikes.

It depends on setback: small setback and long reach isn't such a long reach.

I move from
Cannondale Caad9 48 with 100mm stem
to
Storck Scenero 47 with 90mm stem
The setting is not exactly the same but very close to [handlebar is a bit higher]. I feel comfortable at the first ride and it fit me well without any issue after riding _ 70 km with 800 m climb.
The handling is superb, very stable [than Caad9 clearly] and lively.
Caad9 is a very good frame but Scenero's giving more relaxing ride. It's fast and responsive.
Thanks.

Saw some comments in this thread about people's reaction to Storck geometry. I rode/raced a Scenario for 2 seasons. It's the best race bike I've ever ridden.

Honestly, I hated the thing for the first couple weeks. The geometry was weird to me. I could barely ride no handed without swerving (and I can do no handed-track stands on geared bikes pretty well).

But then! I got used to it, and started riding it up/down mountains. It climbed fine, but it descended incredibly.
I loved racing on it - aggressive and solid.

Though I haven't ridden any of their newer models, I HIGHLY recommend a Storck if you like a bike that rewards a rider that knows what they're doing. I'd love to throw a leg over one of the newer models.
