Storck Scenero G3 Stealth

My newest build to get myself back on the road after taking a short, 3 year break from cycling.

Thanks for the feedback.

Its been close to 3 years since I've ridden and wasn't sure what to expect this morning when I finally got the Storck out on the road.

I went out for a short loop, about 30 miles and the Storck was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a stiff, somewhat harsh ride considering the chain stays are shorter than my previous Ridley Noah and De Rosa Merak but it was the complete opposite. I feel as if the Storck is combination of what my previous bikes were when it came down to its riding characteristics. The Storck rolls and rides so smooth (better than the De Rosa) but at the same time, it handles amazingly sharp. Hardly any effort into taking the turns and the Storck was where I wanted it to be. Anytime I pushed up my cadence, the response was felt instantly (similar to the Ridley). Very fast, responsive, stable but oh so comfortable especially since I was expecting the total opposite.
If it weren't for our scheduled plans today, I'd still be on the road enjoying this thing. It definitely feels great to be back on the road and can't wait to spend more time riding this build.

Congrats! It's always nice when the first ride leaves you begging for more time/miles

Sweet

That's an awesome looking ride right there!! Is the downtube decal a chameleon type? Black from one angle and colored from another? Cool anyway! Heard lots of good things about Storck.
