I’m building up a new everyday road bike, picking her up the first week of April in person - seemed like a good excuse for a holiday!

The build kit is fairly simple/nothing fancy as it’s my every day bike. I’ve got the Saffron as a best bike, so this isn’t an all singing, all dancing build list. It should still come out right around 7.0-7.1kg even though it’s only an Ultegra groupset, so not too heavy either!

Component - Manufacturer - Model - Claimed Weight(g)

Frame - Argonaut Spacebike 2.0 - 950g
Seatmast Topper - ENVE - Argonaut Custom - 100g
Fork - ENVE - 2.0 Tapered 43mm Rake - 370g
Headset - Chris King - Inset I8 Tapered - 189g
Bottom Bracket - Chris King - T47 Ceramic - 108g
Crankset - Shimano - Ultegra 6800 52/36t 175mm - 685g
Shifters - Shimano - Ultegra 6800 - 425g
Brakes - Shimano - Ultegra - 6800 - 335g
Front Mech - Shimano - Ultegra 6800 - 89g
Rear Mech - Shimano - Ultegra 6800 - 195g
Chain - Shimano - Ultegra 6800 - 267g
Cassette - Shimano - Ultegra 6800 - 11-28T - 212g
Saddle - Bontrager - Paradigm RL - 225g
Bars - ENVE - SES Aero - 235g
Stem - Fizik - Cyrano R1 - 130g
Bar Tape - Lizard Skins - DSP 2.5mm - 61g
Pedals - Look - Keo Classic - 342g
Wheels - Campagnolo - Bora One 35 - 1204g
Tyres - Vittoria - Corsa G+ 25 - 560g
Quick Release - KCNC - Titanium - 44g
Cables - Shimano - Dura Ace 9000 - 300g
Cages - Arundel - Mandible x 2 - 80g
Garmin Mount - Barfly - Out Front - 15g

Total Weight = 7101g

I've got various wheelsets that I'll switch between depending on the day/ride, but the Boras are my lightest and this is Weight Weenies, so I've worked out the weight with those!

Plans for the future are to get lighter pedals pretty soon, as the current ones are getting on a bit and weigh a ton. Then maybe switch to a lighter groupset. I’ll see how the new Dura Ace looks when it comes out, but it’s likely to be Campagnolo Chorus, as I really love the Super Record that’s on the Saffron.

I’ll add the geometry and paint design when I get home, then some photos once I’ve got the bike.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers,

Campbell

Picked her up on Tuesday, and got in a couple of rides so far here in Bend. First impressions are really good! Looking froward to getting her home and riding on some familiar roads.

Weight with the Williams wheels/Veloflex Criterium tubs as shown is 7.2kg exactly. The only thing missing from that is a Garmin mount. The Barfly one I normally use doesn't fit with the Enve bars, and the Fizik stem mount I ordered didn't arrive in time for this trip. Switching to my Bora 35's should cut another ~240g from the weight if I use the KCNC skewers instead on the Campagnolo ones. So with the Boras with the good Campagnolo skewers & a Garmin mount added, I'm expecting the weight to be around 7.05-7.1kg, which I think is pretty good for something in my size with an Ultegra groupset!

Couple of images below, I'll get more detailed/less crap shots when I'm home!

Wow!!! As I said above, Argonaut are my favourite custom frame builders and yours doesn't disappoint!! This looks superb. I bet you are over the moon.

I really am. Although I'm not convinced by the tan walled Veloflexs on this build if I'm honest. I've got a set of the new Vittoria Corsa G+ in 25mm that will be going on the Boras, which I think will look better. I rode yesterday with a set of gatorskin tubs and I think I preferred that dark look to the really orange sidewalls.

It's pretty big. 588mm top tube and 168mm head tube. If it's of any interest I can post the geometry once I'm back in Scotland next week.

obviously, its custom to you, but would that be in normal sizes? roughly a 58?

Not really, I looked long and hard to try to find a suitable off the shelf frame.

It's generally closer to the top tube of a 60cm but with the head tube from either a 56 or a 58. The only exceptions I could find were the likes of the Trek H1 geometry. If you were to look at grand fondo type frames, it's the head tube from a 54.

Fantastic! It's got the kinds of lines I like... clean, straight, no nonsense. Looking forward to seeing the geo chart. And maybe when you get a chance some closeups of the headtube/downtube/toptube junctions as well as the seattube cluster area.

Very nice... But I do think those wheels actually take away a bit from the stellarness of the frame. Decals are too loud and yes, the tan sidewalls just add to the confusion. At least to my eye. I find that tan sidewalls, can look really superb on the right builds. But I think this frame would look better with all black. I don't know how fond you are of the big Williams decals either. Maybe just the individual W's are all you need?

I agree, I think the Williams decals are far too much. But unfortunately they are painted on under the clearcoat so I can't remove them! I think I could get away with the tan walls if the wheels were all black, but as it is they are overpowering everything.

I get home on Sunday evening, but will try to get up some detail shots early next week. The workmanship is amazing, I love that I can see all the different types and layers of carbon on the surface.

I see you're from Scotland, and I see it's got an integrated seatmast. So one question I have learned to think about with large bikes is how do they travel. With integrated seatmasts packing can be a real pain in the ass, since they won't fit in any typical size bike box. How are you planning to pack yours for the trip back to Scotland?

That's what I'm about to have to figure out! If I can't get it in my bike bag, which is likely, Ben has a cardboard box that it'll fit in. It's then coming on the plane with me as sports goods/luggage.
