Wow... can't wait to see the build thread. BTW, how do you manage your time
to ride all your cool bikes? I have three bikes (one of them is a winter old bike),
but sometimes I feel guilty if I don't ride the other two stable bikes equally.
But anyway, I always enjoy seeing a bike porn!

Looking to push the top tube to be more horizontal and for the top tube to meet headtube without additional headtube sticking out


Thoughts

I dig it - I like shorter stays personally but I would say you have quite the bike on the way :) Must have quite the stable if this is what rounds it out lol. Look forward to seeing it, love what Ben does over there.

@itsacarr - this bike (my wife is hoping and praying everyday) should be the steed to round up the stable. Custom steel, custom titanium and custom carbon...

I know it's early but, if you ever decide to sell it the geometry would work nicely for me...!

Look forward to seeing pics.

I'm looking forward to this one! :thumbup: But that BikeCAD picture doesn't do your bike justice. :lol: Seriously though, when is it expected to be built up and when can we see actual photos?

@aqualelaki - I normally (Without fail) alternate the riding - so kind of like

1) Monday -Speedvagen
2) Tuesday - Baum
etc...

You get the picture...however, there are some days where I am just beaten up, maybe don't feel like riding where I take the more "fun" bike to ride...but I hear you...for now the speedvagen gets the most attention, my wife calls them my concubines ;)

its the wheel combinations that I find myself feeling guilty of not paying more attention to certain wheels..

@ Bely I'll be really interested to hear your opinion of how the three bikes compare. I'm picking my Argonaut up in April in person (seemed like a good excuse for a holiday to me!) and have been thinking of custom Ti for a new gravel bike (Baum Turanti looks awesome) so would be good to have some reference to a bike I'll be getting to know very well.

When do you expect to have her built up?

@campbellrae I am afraid my argonaut won't be that quick - basically the process just started! :) however I'll say this - I still prefer the speedvagen to the Baum

That's interesting, is there anything specific about the Speedvagen that makes you prefer it or is it just a general 'feeling'?

Sorry for so many questions, both Baum and Speedvagen are possibilities for my next build so I'm very curious to hear from someone who has ridden both.

Honestly, not that much miles put on the Baum yet... And I have been lazy with changing wheels on both frames so that it's an apple to apple comparison - but so far I love the lightweights meleinsteins with the speedvagen combination.. To me it's the perfect blend of the so called "stiffness and comfort"...

On the Baum I have the bora ultras on and so far it's been just a little too comfortable (if ever there's such a thing) but it's almost dull to ride?! But if I ever get down to switching the wheels over - it would probably be a different ride altogether.

No worries for the questions - that's what these forums are for?! Real life (MAMIL) experiences ;) however to be honest - I ain't no PRO racer nor bike tester/reviewer...
