Hello everyone,

Thought I'd share my current build. This will be my second road frame, and my upgrade into a carbon frame from a 2001 aluminum frame. Most of the parts came off the old frame, but I also added a few new pieces for this build.

Argon 18 was a company I have been seeing pop up around me more, but isn't something you see all the time, so when I found a deal on a new frame that came with the warranty, I figured I'd give them a shot.

Brand: Argon 18
Type: Krypton

Final Weight: TBD (I will take it up to the shop once I'm done building it out)

Frame w/ hanger, SP clamp - Argon 18: 1313g
Fork - Argon 18: 485g
Headset - 3D headset (Argon 18) / FSA: 201g
Seat post - Argon 18: 273g
Saddle - Specialized Romin: 252g
Stem - Ritchey Pro: 147g (will be replaced, likely with Zipp Service Course SL)
Bar - Zipp Service Course SL SS: 275g
Bottle Cage - China Carbon: 75g
Brakes - Sram Red: 276g
Front D - Sram Force: 89g
Rear D - Sram Force: 175g
Crankset w/ Rings/bolts - Sram S950 50t-34t: 655g
Bottom Bracket - Sram TruVativ GXP: 110g
Shifter - Sram Force: 263g
Front Wheel - China Carbon: 759g
Rear Wheel w/ Cassette - China Carbon + PG1070 26t-11t: 1192g
Tires - Continental GP4000sii: 422g

To Come:
Tubes
Chain
Cables
Bar Tape

Let me know what you all think and if you have any suggestions! I will report back once I'm finished with the weight and final pictures. Enjoy!

(Sorry about any blurry photo, I tried to go back and fix anything that was meh, but the stripped frame photos I was stuck with)

That sure is a pretty frame. At 275g it would be really worthwhile to replace that seat-post.

The frame, fork, seat post & headset, I thought were all a little heavy. I am on the entry level frame though so I'm not complaining. I am going to mess around with the Argon 18 3D headtube and normal spacers before I make cuts, but I think there is some weight to saved by getting rid of their alloy spacers.

I also think there is some weight to be shaved from the saddle, but I think that might be less of a priority for the time being.

good choice of manufacturer imo. Had my Argon 18 for over 10 years now and still going strong. Good company and looks great!
