    Was looking the Argon 18 before I got my bike!
    Lovely looking bike.
  • You must have a flexible back. Lovely bike.

    Beautiful colourway - love it :)
  • I was riding a bike in that position for years until I went for a bike fit, I'm as flexible as anyone I know but I was wasting loads of power due to my hip and angle.
    Went from a 12cm bar saddle drop to a 5.5cm and even though I'm a bit less aero I'm quicker and fatigue far less.

    Nice looking bike though, The ultegra looks classy, How much does it weigh?
    We have an Argon 18 frame at work and its surprisingly weighty.

    The pics were taken just after it came down off the loft in March so the saddle was not set to its proper height which is about 20mm lower, that said I do have a long inseam.
    The total weight including peddles is 16.8lb

  • Its the argon 18 krypton we have at work, Not as nice as yours and much heavier.
    Hope you really enjoy your bike.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I love riding this bike, its stiff, responsive and yet comfortable. Just can't wait for the spring so I can get back on it.
    Regarding the weight, if weights your thing, the claimed weight for the frame is 940g and when we weighed it is was just slightly over.
