First full carbon venture.

Thought I would post an image or two of my first full carbon bike. Man, it's smooth!!!

Aside from my new Gallium pro, I have a bottom of the range Argon 18 radon and there's such a difference in speed and feel. Much more than I thought.

Anyway enough rambling.

    Very simple styling which I like. A local shop stocks these and alway look good I the window, possibly on the shortlist when n+1 situation arrives.

    Lovely bike! I have a 2011 Krypton myself. Don't see too many of them around either.

    Not usually a fan of black and white either, but I do like that :) Enjoy!

    That's gorgeous. I love most Argon 18 bikes and this one is great. I also appreciate the way that the cranks pull in the red on the wheels. My initial thought was 'needs monochrome wheels' but then clocked the cranks and realised they go together quite well in a subtle way. Nice.

    Very nice mate.
    I like the black and white theme.
    Enjoy! :D

    Cheers guys.

    I will be removing the red stickers from the wheels shortly and fitting a pair of gp4000s, as i split the front Ultremo last weekend.

    I'd love a set of cosmic carbones, I think they'd look great but can't justify the price or the fact I'd be even slower up the hills.

    Lovely krypton there. Everyone has there tastes but I believe every Argon is a nice Argon!!!

    Here's my Radon:

    Where did you get the change of wheels stickers from?

    I just peeled off the red stickers.
