I’ve got to praise Praxis on their customer support.

I was having a shifting issue on one of their chainrings. Finally ran out of options and send a message to Praxis, asking how to adjust the FD. They asked to see a picture and said they suspect a manufacturing issue. “Will I be willing to try a replacement one?” On the second morning, I got a new set, along with a note “Do I mind sending the old one back if the second one fixes the issue?” The new one worked much much better and I sent the old one back.
I still do prefer (slightly) the shifting of the Dura Ace rings. But Shimano has never ever been this good on warranty issues. Praxis is a clear winner on customer support.

Now on Storck…

I’ve had a few bikes in the past. The last frame I bought is a Storck Fenamolist, and I really am loving it. I thought its stiffness will help me on the climbs (which it did) but I didn’t think I will be able push the bike on downhills this much. It simply is rigid but comfortable. It is kind of difficult to explain; when I start pedaling it feels like the bike wants to go. Flats or climbs doesn’t matter, it just starts moving. After a 40-50 mile ride, with some climbs (~3000 ft), I do not feel I am that much tired either. OK, it is not a weight weenie frame (901 gr on my scale) but I am liking it…

Riding a F0.7 now.
But not sure if I have the same feel like you do.
It has a really long reach campared to other frames that have a same EFF TT
so I run a 100mm stem on it and felt quit nimble when descent.

You are right, the geometry may not for everyone. And their size increments, well, they are simply too far apart. But if it works for you, I think it is a great frame.

Another problem is their existence (or the lack of it) in the US. Fascenario (both 0.6 and 0.7) simply too expensive (ridicules???) to give them a try, and the used ones are really really rare. If you are a weight weenie, Fenomalist is a good alternative just to test (I think their geometry are the same.)
