Just got into time trialling so I built myself a bike a few weeks back. Most of the bits came from Ebay and my own personal stash. Going to have a proper bike fit and learn how to ride it over the off season ready for next year.

    Beauty!

    I've always enjoyed your lovely road bike builds - they all somehow just look 'right'. Your talent obviously extends to tt bikes as well!

    Nice one man. Those R2C shifters should be adjustable so they return to pointing parallel to the road for maximum aeroness, no? I've never had them but I thought they could do that.
    Yes they can be adjusted and after much messing about I have settled on their current position. I tried them rotated further forwards but I found I had to stretch too much to change gear. Lovely bits of kit though.

    Cheers Harry, gone are the days I used to just throw as much anodised componentry as I could at a bike, I actually think before I act these days. Got a new build or two on the way, hopefully they will meet with your approval :wink:

    very nice, makes me want an Argon 18 tt frame a little bit more. Next spring, I shall be sensible and restrain myself

    Even the Alloy E80 looks a great frame and it is basically the same weight as the E-112, saw one at a TT a couple of weeks ago and it is a very handsome, fast looking bike. Never really considered Argons before I got this but now they are on my radar I quite fancy trying one of their road frames.

    Lovely that. Owned an E112 a few years ago. Sold the frame and wish I didn't now. VERY VERY stiff yet not overly uncomfortable.

    Nice build.

  • That is one beautiful bike. Do you constantly change bikes, or are you simply earning well with a sole focus on cycling?

    I dont change bikes as much as I used to but I do have too many. I do not spend that much on bikes as I am a prolific bargain hunter and I love the challenge of building a decent bike as cheaply as possible. The Argon was built with a mixture of new and slightly used parts for well under £2000, which I think is reasonable for the spec I have achieved.
