Storck's Aero 2 prototype time trial bike was one of the undoubted stars of the bike show season and we were lucky enough to get talked around it for the video below by the man himself, Marcus Storck.
Designed by Marcus Storck for Ironman triathlete Faris Sultan – who is sponsored by Storck, the bike was due to be handed over to Faris for the start of the 2010 season, but the process was way ahead of schedule when we caught up with Marcus Storck at Eurobike. He talked us around the non-rideable prototype, but told us a rideable version would be displayed at Eurobike, and he would then be handing Faris a finished version in time for the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. Faris didn't win, but if he had the new Aero 2 it won't have been down to the bike.
Check out the video as Marcus Storck talks us around this exceptional machines which combines low weight, low drag and with some very clever design features… and if you're from the UCI look away now!
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
