Noticed that some of the latest posts here make reference to installation issues.

I thought that it would be a good idea to share two other installation issues to help others properly set up their Storcks.

1. BB cups - the below is direct advice from Storck
"Please only assemble the BB shells with ca. 8nm and not the 40nm that is in
the manual. The 40nm is for aluminium frames; carbon frames cannot be
subjected to these stresses during assembly. Please do not forget to use
Loctite to securely hold the BB shells in the frame."

2. Acros Ceramic Headset - I have come across some discussion in other posts about where to put the orange seal so this illustration shows how the headset should be installed properly

Thanks for the info....we have been using that orange seal on the top of the HS for a long time with no issues....it works there as it creates a seal between the top cap and the bearing sureface. Are you positive it should be used on the bottom?

Yes - the Acros installation photo is from Storck Technical Dept.

I installed the orange seal at the top before and it works fine but the lower head tube-fork crown transition area was disjointed and looks like a sure thing for collecting road grime. As there is more grime build up at the fork-lower head tube area, the seal should be there. I agree with you that there should be an additional seal between the top cap and bearings - I guess Acros believes the compression sleeve is sufficient to block out dirt.

Ok....will try it out but I agree with you that 2 seals would work better.

Has anyone else with a 0.6 Noticed on the Front fork that Brakes are not equidistant for the rim?

The Rim is Centered but the non drive side Brake projects out from the side of the Fork 1-2 mm more than the drive side.

You can compensate by sanding that pad more, but it's really thin! (I Have ENVE3.4's) whereas the other pad can go in with almost no sanding.

Is there a way to adjust this?

I have the same issue with the same wheels....talked with THM about it and the only option is sanding the pads when using the ENVE Smart wheels or the ZIPP firecrest.
But you are correct, one side needs minimal sanding while the other has probably being sanded down half.

Beautiful bike. If I had the means I'd swap my stable of Scotts for Storcks.
