Newest trends about Divide continental cycling, and
If you spend a few minutes browsing through our copy, then you probably know that we’re not exactly purists when it comes to cycling kit. Sure, we occasionally privilege traditional designs and styles over the latest trends in tube shapes and colorways, but we’re open-minded about adopting new technologies when they suit our purposes – especially when a manufacturer applies the latest fancy technology to the basics of cycling. More than almost any other bike we stock, the Aernario Basic Shimano Ultegra Complete Road Bike is one of the best blends of tradition, innovation, and solid build kit that we’ve rolled through our shop doors. For the frameset, Storck used Computer Flow Dynamics to tease aerodynamic tube shapes out of a geometry that balances the low-weight aggression of compact frames with a nod to the more cantankerous, classic-geometry purists among us. Though it’s subtle, the wind-dodging design is inherited from Storck’s time trial frames, so it’s both invisible to the eye and the wind. And since the module’s overall shape and design borrows heavily from the Fascenario 0. 7, the aerodynamic benefits don’t come with the usual tradeoff of poor handling and unforgiving road feel. When viewing the frame from the side, it looks like a traditional road frame. However, if you were to take a cross section, its aero shape would become strikingly evident. These shapes are laid-up with Storck’s own CFR/UD unidirectional carbon fiber. This curated material is the main reason why Storck has so many BOTY awards from the German cycling industry, as the unidirection orientation of the fibers mean that the sheets can be situated for targeted load-bearing properties. This lets Storck stiffen the frame without sacrificing damping qualities and – paradoxically – while using less material for a lower overall weight. The Aernario features a massive, oversized PressFit BB86 bottom bracket juncture in order to boost power transfer even further, and the seatstays connect.
This is the modern interpretation of the classic Colnago bike. It has a monocoque front triangle and squared off rear chainstays so it is stiff but remains comfortable.

The Gravity Liberty CX is just the bike for the rider wanting the weight and performance of an aluminum frame & advanced straight fork blades, wide gearing, comfortable riding position, and wants all that while keeping on a budget. The Liberty CX frame is precision welded from specially shaped lightweight & strong aluminum tubing using Gravity’s own special CX-Series frame tubes. Check out the engineered top tube and BiOval down tube. This is designed for responsive performance while maintaining a comfortable ride. The frame is a SemiCompact Geometry which allows for a bit more comfortable & upright position as well as easy straddling, yet is still aero enough for some serious riding. Powerful cantilever brakes & rear rack mounts make this a perfect commuter. Compare this to a Specialized, Trek, or Giant that sells in the $900 range. And then buy this bike. Only at.
