Wow discoverspeed...that's gonna be a superb build, i think. If you follow the trend of your other bikes, what i think you'll, then this will be another great fantastic build. I'm looking forward for completing this one.

Congratulations with your buy!

This may interest some of you -
Weight of fork (uncut) and the integrated brakes with pads 409g. The fork is actually a Scapula F. Storck calls the integrated brakes "Invisible Brake System"

I love the bb, it's like a loaf of bread with hole in it! In all seriousness, this is really awesome and I can't wait to see what you do with it. You mention the shorter top tube... How tall are you? I ask because this is on my tt shortlist.

That front brake is a nightmare to set up, be sure to have plenty of tea/coffee nearby when you build it! However they are shockingly strong and light though....

grid256 - I am 1.78m tall.

I have to take the size 51 (Effective Top Tube length 51.5cm) as the next size up is 55 with ETT length of 54.5cm. The larger frame will be for 1.8m+ guys. I am matching this with a stem length of 75mm. The Aero 2 comes with either a 75mm or 90mm integrated stem-aerobar. The new aerobar (see photo) is now 40cm end to end. Weight as measured is with uncut extension bars, albeit without the armrests, pads and mounting ware. The first batch was narrower.

I prefer a shorter ETT plus stem as I prefer to place my weight more forward with elbows (rather than forearms) on the armrests.

BTW, I understand that Storck is reviewing/ just reviewed the geometry for a size 47 but production on this size will take some time.
