    DANG! A Storck Scenario .9 Just got ripped off...

    on ebay! I just happened to click on to it as it was nearing its final seconds and it was holding at $520. In the last 5 seconds, someone stole it for a final price of $625! That seems ridiculously low for a new Storck frame and fork!!! I wanted to bid on it just to grins but I definitely don't need another frame to add to my que. Anyhow, that person who won the frame should go to jail for stealing a bike!


    Here is the listing:

    I saw that, but too small for me. I've wanted a Storck ever since I bought a Storck labeled bike case from a guy in Germany who used to work there & he regaled me with stories about the brand.

    I just assumed that that one would go for a lot of money.

    Storcks have too short HT lengths for my liking. But still, for $625 + only $30 for S&H, that is a GREAT deal and I could easily overlook the 30 mm of spacers I would need to use on their frames.

    I am intrigued by Storck frames, especially since he, along with Gary Klein, cut his teeth at Kinesis when Kinesis was right here in Portland. IMHO, he is one step removed from custom carbon builders like Parlee and Crumpton in terms of "chi chi" factor and availability.

    Seeing this go for so little, it makes me wonder why anyone would buy knock-off "Chin-arellos".

    True, but I don't think this is a regular occurrence. Unfortunately, it is/was too big for me.

    It's an obvious fake. The drop outs give it away.

    Really. Storcks all have rear drop outs. My friend has the same model, same year, as the one on Ebay and it's no exception.

    Exactly, I saw that frame and thought about it for a second, but there is no way in hell I'm buying something that expensive from someone with basically no feedback.

    Well if it's a fake then the guys at plan b would probably like to know that their name is being used on ebay. The shop is well respected here in the central florida area. Not saying it's legit but if it is coming out of their shop then I would say someone got a great deal.

    The Scenario CD1 has rear facing dropouts; Scenario C 1.2 has dropouts that look like the eBay bike, and the older Scenario C 0.9 (as far as I can see from this picture) has dropouts that look like the one on eBay.

    (Hard to find a good pic since this is an older model)

    Not fake, but keep telling yourself that to make yourself feel better.

    You da man Paredown, you da man! For a 2008 Storck, that is an incredible deal. Do you know how they ride? I haven't heard of many folks testing Storcks, let alone owning them.

    Now, I feel bad for not trying to get in on that!

    I actually have not ridden one, so I have no idea about how they ride. I'm also a bit of a geezer & ride old steel, so I have never even been on a carbon frame.

    I guess it's just one of those things--something about the Storck frames appeals to me, & I have a hankering to try one out. But it won't be anytime soon--we just found out yesterday that my wife's major client is replacing her with a younger & cheaper person.

    There is another Storck--a respectably priced 2010 Absolutist on eBay on a Buy it Now here if you can be tempted.

    I test rode an Absolutist 0.9. It rode like a block of wood. Dead, dull and totally uninspired. I would hope the higher end Storck frames have better ride quality. I have an Addict and a Parlee, and both are great bikes, but I like the Addict better.

    I owned a Fenomalist for a bit. Unreal bike. Very, very fast but also very unforgiving. Not a block of wood...but hard.
    The road? Oh, I guess....

    I overtook a young roadie on his Storck here in Tokyo about a year ago. The only one I've seen in Japan. I wanted to stop and ask him where he got it but he was some hipster messenger type who didn't want to chat.

    Not much of a consolation, but perhaps the one that got away had the same design flaw than the 1.1 in the thread below.
    Can a broken dropout be repaired?
