Argonaut Space Bike
 
I bought this bike a few months ago, kinda made it into a ww project just for fun. Still not complete yet as I have a THM fibula set on the way, and perhaps a new set of tires.

It's a rocket!, I suppose it's the effect of all the components put together but I don't think I have ridden a more nimble/responsive bike than this one... my goto for the steepest rides around here ^^.

Anyway, this is the components list:
Argonaut Space Bike 2.0 f&f
Lightweight Meilenstein wheelset
Campagnolo Super Record 2015+ shifters and derailleurs
THM clavicula SE crankset
Cane creek ee brakes
Darimo handlebar and stem
SRAM XG-1190 11/32T cassette
Campagnolo R11 chain
Look ti pedals
Alptitude 150mm saddle
CarbonWorks bottle cages
Nokon cables
Vittoria Corsa Speed G+ tires
CK 44mm headset

I am guessing this to be around 12 pounds, I'll weight it once I get the fibulas

So nice! There is no carbon bike at least that I have ridden that has the ride feel of an Argonaut. It is a special bike for sure. Cheers

wow .. amazing.


Super weight weenie :banana:

Have you ridden it much? How does it go after a few hrs on the saddle?

Stellar
 
That is incredible. Love everything about it.

Carbon isn’t usually my flavor, but that looks really appealing.

Bely's old rig? I've been keeping my eye out for a Argonaut.... Not too many used carbon rim brake, mechanical shifting frames left..

Baller bike alert!

That is absolutely amazing! But honestly I would keep the EE brakes. I have known friends that have briefly had Fibulas and all of them only kept them a short time. They just don't stop well. If the bike is for climbing, then you also have to descend...

I had some AX Lightness Orions once - they were find when I lived in a place that didn't have steel twisty descents - but then I did one of those descents and almost went over the edge 'cause I couldn't slow down fast enough.

But being that you are South Bay - I would think the EE's are the brakes that you would want.

That is badass. :banana:

Thank you all for your nice comments :) seems like there's a place still for rim brake carbon bikes. I know I will always keep at least one in my stable ^^

Thank you, I went for a test ride yesterday, only around 30 miles, I started feeling a bit of discomfort near the end of the ride, but I haven't tuned the saddle position yet. I know the Alptitude Gardena fits me -- it's basically a 70gr full carbon specialized power -- so I just need some time to find the optimal position
