A lightweight take on all-road.
By now, it's expected that a frameset emblazoned with Storck's logo is going to be ridiculously light, and the 2017 T.I.X. Pro Cyclocross Frameset is no exception. For riders looking for a unique, high end steed that can push beyond the boundaries of pavement to gravel, packed dirt, and the occasional local cross race, the T.I.X. is right up your alley. It begs to go fast, and Storck's proven stiffness-to-weight expertise makes it a bike that, with the right engine, displays remarkable energy across the challenging conditions of all-road adventuring.
Storck shapes the T.I.X. Pro with carefully layered unidirectional carbon fiber to create a frame with a notably low claimed weight of just 940g. The featherweight T.I.X. frame is constructed with Storck's hallmark Directional Depending Stiffness design, which involves shaping transverse-oval tubes in a carbon layup to equip the frame to hit muddy ruts and uneven terrain without sacrificing expert handling. This balance of rigidity and comfort means the T.I.X. Pro can hold lines and absorb fatiguing chatter while maintaining a ride quality that doesn't feel painfully rigid.
The T.I.X. Pro receives its own unidirectional carbon fork design as well, the Storck Pro Fork. The Pro is specifically fine-tuned to complement the frame's adept handling and enable you to take advantage of the T.I.X.'s eager acceleration without sacrificing precision. Storck does this by engineering the fork to flex when forces are applied from the trail or course, but the inclusion of a thru-axle means it won't yield under braking forces, resulting in steadfast control with some added smoothness.
It's worth noting that the T.I.X. Pro utilizes a front 9 x 100mm thru-axle and rear 10 x 135mm thru-axle combination. It's a unique design choice in comparison to the more standardized 12 or 15mm front and 12 x 142mm rear combo, so you'll need to do some research on available end caps to make sure your favorite wheels are compatible with this frame.

Dirty bird can ROLL
- I've put it through the wringer
Had mine for 3 seasons now. Set-up with 20th anniversary kit. Have some HED belgium+ on DTs with schwalbe g-ones(28mm i think). Did the JBishop Alpine Loop GF, GRUSK, and dozens of other long gravel races and this bike absolutely crushes. It’s amazing, to me, that something coming in at weight that would be light for a race-spec road bike, can chew up the chunkiest, most rutted out, washboarded, backroads in VA and WV as good as any XC MTB could; short of a Top Fuel or similar. And it has road race bike lightness, control, and efficiency through all of it. Blah blah carbon directional stiffness blah blah. Its just a beast. I’m gonna switch out the DTs for some Onyx hubs and this thing will continue to be my gravel assault sled. At least until the top fuels start shipping with curly barsz

Nice Frame but WTF with the through axel
Ok so I purchased this frame to build a Gravel CX bike, Evne cockpit, post & wheels, Durace running gear, this should have been a sweet set up. The frame itself is outstandingly light & stiff. The issue I had was building it up, the front through Axel is 9mmx100 and the rear is 10mmx135 finding end caps to suit was near impossible, I had to manufacture my own drilling out QR caps to the sizes required. I would have expected 12x100 front and 12x135 rear. My Bad for not checking the diameters before purchase!

Hi Ian, you're right, this is a funky through axle standard - in 2017 thru axles hadn't settled on 12x142 and 12x100 for gravel bikes. DT Swiss, Industry Nine, and several other brands have end caps to fit this standard.

am right now communicating with my wheel builder to learn whether there is such an end cap/custom offering to allow me to transfer my current Bitex x Boyd Altimont wheels to this frame, which looks and seems too good to be true for my next gravel build.

what is the widest tire size the frame will fit? is 650b an option?
