Storck Bicycle

Today's guest at the Paid Friend Podcast Markus Storck, company founder of the bicycle manufacturer Storck Bicycle. At the age of 6, Markus not only competed in his first bike race, but also sold his first bike in his parents' shop. From the desire to sell in his parents' shop, to commercial training in the bicycle trade, to his own global brand Storck Bicycle.

The bicycle has been a common thread through his life. Markus tells how he started his own business at a young age. How he followed his path by feeling and sensing and what he learned from defeats. An incredibly exciting and multi-faceted career.

There is much to take away for our own area of life. In addition, we talk about inner work and how a key event led him to spirituality. Markus explains how he practices spirituality in everyday life and what the connection to the spiritual promises him.

Short story from Storck Bicycle

The company history began with Storck Bike-tech GmbH, founded in 1988 by Markus Storck in Bad Camberg in the Limburg-Weilburg district. Three years later, Storck Bike-tech Inc. was founded in the USA in 1992.

The new company and brand name "Storck Bicycle" was introduced from 1995 onwards and was intended to underline the move from the previously component-oriented company to a bicycle manufacturer.

In 1996, the still young company achieved one of its greatest sporting successes. The Dutchman Bart Brentjens won on a converted Storck Rebel Mountain bike the gold medal in the first cross-country mountain bike race of the Olympics.

From 1998 onwards, fully assembled Storck bicycles were marketed for the first time. The development in the field of extensive lightweight construction was further advanced. In 2001, Storck Bicycle introduced the extremely lightweight Scenario Light road bike frame weighing 1200 g and at the Eurobike 2004 was a 4200 g racing bike, and a 6200 g mountain bike ♪♪♪
