Hey guys.

Sorry if this info is easy to find and I missed it. I was curious if anyone could tell me what top tier stiffness numbers for CF frames are like today? BB stiffness and head tube stiffness in NM etc.

Also, does anyone happen to know those same stiffness numbers for a Storck Aernario G1 pro? Thanks :)

German magazine "Roadbike" has its test results online:

The filter "Hersteller" means manufacturer. "Lenkkopfsteifigkeit" is head tube stiffnes, "Tretlagersteifigkeit" is BB stiffness.

Unless your name is Kittel there shouldn't be any real benefit with a very stiff frame. :mrgreen:

Well, if you're built like me (think of a cross between a gorilla and a Komodo dragon), then you'd be putting out close to 1.5 GW's, so stiffness is definitely a factor :)

I was just curious where top tier frames had ended up, wanted to know if manufacturers had kept pursuing that. Thanks for the link, that was perfect
