Hi!
I'm driving me crazy to choose my new bike....
I like a light one (about 6.5kg, complete bike), but I want a confortable one....
At last, I've got 3 frames to choose:
Cervelo RS Giro D'Italia
Storck Absolutist 0.9 (100€ less than Cevelo)
http://www.storck-bicycle.de/en/web-anz ... tist%200.9
Storck Scenario 1.0 -not the CD 1.0 - (300€ cheaper than the Absolutist). It's a new one model.
http://www.storck-bicycle.de/en/bike-an ... 7&sub=3000

THe Scenario1.0 is heavier than Absolutist (more or less as the Cervelo) , and it has got 1 1/8 steer headset (1 1/8 and 1 /4 in the Absolutist), but it's cheaper and it's so beautifull...
THe Storck has got only 2 years of warranty, while Cervelo is all life warranty....
Please, help me....

As Storck distributor, I will not get into which brand you should choose, but I can tell you the differences between the Storcks.

The Absolutist 0.9 and Scenario CD 1.0 is very close in stiffness, so that is a toss-up. The Absolutist is about 100 grams lighter and more comfortable, as the Absolutist series has a bit more "rounded" ride.

The Absolutist 1.0 is actually even more comfortable, but a bit less stiff and around 100g heavier.

sorry, but it's the Scenario 1.0, not the CD 1.0....
Which do you prefer, the Scenario 1.0 or the Absolutist 0.9???
(Scenario is 300€ less than Absolutist)

You like the look of them, or you've ridden them and like the performance?

Liking the look of something is one thing, but the geometries are COMPLETELY different - I'm not so sure you've fully considered this... :?

No, I haven't ridden any of them (and I can't do it...)
Now I've got an "old-school" Alan Supercarbonio, so any of them is so different from my actual frame.....

Like most Storck questions, geometry is central. How long of a head tube do you want? Ex: A Cervelo RS in my size would have 160mm HT while the Absolutist in my size has a 115mm HT. :shock:

Exactly my point - Storck are very low at the front whilst the RS is very high. Carbon_Cowboy presents a perfect example where a 54cm RS has a 160mm headtube and the storck has a 115mm, 45mm difference... which is HUGE!! :shock:

Remember that the Storcks has a fork length app. 12 mm longer than the Cervelo. So you need to add that to the head tube length. But of course, there's still a fair difference.

I'm 1m73cm (5.67 ft) tall and 80cm (2.62ft) insame, so I think I need a 51 size in both of them:
Storck 51: TT 537 (slooping), HT 115
Cervelo 51: TT 532, HT 140
Hummmm.......

Yes. I´m also 173 cm/81cm inseam, and ride a 51, which is a perfect fit for me. Remember the longer fork, which makes the headtube lengths almost the same.

You can see me bike here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=56232&start=0&hilit=fenomalist

1.73m here also. I ride a size 51 Storck and if I bought a Cervelo(R3 not RS) it would be a 54 w/ a 73 degree stem to get closest to position I have on my Storck. The Storck has a Effective TT length of 549mm vs. 532 for the RS that is also quite a difference. What is saddle to bar drop and cockpit length right now?

Where do people get fork length information? It seems that's rarely published but has a profound effect on the fit.

The Storck does have a very low rake fork, that at least is obvious. More stable than would be suggested by the head tube angle.

I think now I've got a "saddle-to-bar" distance of 52-53cm (I don't really know exactly), with a 11 cm stem (Ritchey WCS)
