Guys
If you look at the storck website you will see an new frame has been intoduced: the CD 1.0
It promises to be stiffer than the 0.9

No weight stated, but could be interesting !

wow, the frame is pretty sweet, but i wish they would bring the weight down. 1080g in a 55 :roll: not so impressive. but i do like the way the frame looks, and a 59 would fit me well. maybe they have a scenario carbon CD 0.8 in the works, that would be sweet.

Didnt that Cervelo that gave Jaja and his mechanic so much trouble a couple years ago in the tour have those kind of drop outs? Maybe I'm wrong....

The Cervelo uses horizontal dropouts like on a track bike (which you can use that frame for).

This is more like Klein's (don't know if they still do them this way).

Yes, Klein did them that way.

I have one and it sucks to get the wheel off the bike.
I use even bolt-on skewers, because I have to remove the skewer entirely everytime i want to mount or dismount the wheel. (Its the derailleur (Precision Proshift) that hinders me removing the wheel.)

I think the only plus for these dropouts are the weightsaving.

But awesome Frame - really :o
I sure like that design - but kind of funny headtube?!? Looks a little bit like the ellipse design from my principia.
