cervelo rca, focus izalco max, corratec Mauro Sannino Prima, cannondale superSix Evo, Pasculli Altissimo, Simplon Pavo 3 Ultra, trek Madone /.9 and Neil Pryde Bura SL.

I have the magazine :)

The Focus has the best frame of the lot.

Buy the latest edition of Tour Int on the iPad and you get the full review in English along with the aero bike review as well.

And yes, Tour is a bit partisan towards German brands.

Cervelo S5 tested best in the wind tunnel, though Storck Aenario 'won' the aero category again for having the most balanced ride characteristic (comfort stiffness aerodynamic) despite having one of the worst aerodynamic in the test. Surprise there?

Focus Izalco Max won the lightest bike category. I will try to upload the result photo later today.

So obviously the the Addict and BH Ultralight are the best bikes to get. They are the only two that beat the Focus and thus weren't even included.

You have a typo. That should be Storck Aernario.

But anyhow, Storck should change the name, at least for benefit of the English speaking audience, to Aeronario. Then how could it not be very aero? We don't need any imperfect wind tunnel testing to tell us how aero it is. With the name Aeronario, it's obviously aero, and more aero than any bike not having aero in its name.
