Based on your influences and comments so far...

- You like panels
- You want the Argo 'signature' teal
- You want the carbon to feature

On that basis I say keep it simple:

- Do teal panels
- Have the Argo logo in the panels as carbon show-through
- Have black or teal ISP topper and stem
- Ignore white completely (but perhaps use it as your saddle and bar tape colour)

Canvasing feedback will only make it harder - YOU need to make a decision! :)

Based on what you said this is what you want:

Get it made and ride it already!

Edit: I see he doesn't use the teal King headset, the colour probably doesn't match. Use a black one instead!

I would do without the teal panel on the seat tube, and add teal to the inside of the fork legs instead.

It's more balanced like this.
The inside fork legs thingy is done too often by Argo.
Surprisingly the above variation seems something they haven't done too often.

The panel at the seattube could be a bit shorter, ending a bit above the chainring.

Yep, I agree.

Gotta expose some of that luscious carbon too, silly not to.

Questions: tan wall tires? Or black. White bar tape with matching white saddle or just black on black! Or Argo blue? If it's possible
