We haven't ridden it yet!

Well we’ve finally got the Storck Rebel Seven build completed! We previewed this bike as a frame only a few weeks ago, but put it on the back burner while we headed to New Zealand to shoot the Ride Rotorua Top Ten Trails series.

What a sleek, smart brake mount! We also like the low-profile 142x12mm rear axle.

Looking at this beast now, we don’t know why we waited so long! It looks gorgeous and even simply throwing a leg over it in the office, you just know it’s going to be a real pocket rocket. The frame is just wonderfully finished, and it has that compact, flickable look to it.

The Revelation is a great fork, and we're also very pleased to see some appropriate tyres on the Rebel Seven. Great spec!

We love the graphics, the matte finish, the sleek rear brake mount and the spec too. It would’ve been very easy to give this bike a euro-style spec, with skinny bars and pizza-cutter tyres, but the Rebel Seven is dressed for Australian conditions. The Rockshox Revelation, Shimano XT brakes and drivetrain and confident cockpit and tyres should give it some real go in the singletrack.

We look forward to hitting the trails on board this little German this weekend!
