Exactly 15lbs as pictured with my wife's Carbon-Ti lightweight clinchers on. Transforms the ride compared to the regular Enve 6.7's.

Great looking bike. What chainring bolts are you using. I'm looking for some red ones to add a little bit of colour to my new build.

I was looking at this frameset. How does it ride?

KCNC makes anodized chainring bolts - not sure if that's what he has here but they look good & come in red.

They're actually Wolf chainring bolts. With Enve 6.7's the bike is silly fast on the flat but definitely takes a bit to 'wind-up' and doesn't like hills. It's also stiff as a board on the 6.7's. With these carbon-ti clinchers the bike is transformed. Very smooth and comfortable (schwalbe Pro one 25mm tubeless) and the bike feels really well balanced - very flickable but stable and solid. If I didn't need the speed of the 6.7's for the fast group ride (flat here in Savannah) I'd leave the carbon-ti's on all the time. Braking is noticeably improved too. But the enve's will stay. It's an absolute weapon with that wheelset and the speed is worth the trade off in comfort and braking - besides I've got a Parlee CX bike for off-road duties and am building a rather special Steel/Carbon frame for a more comfortable all-round ride...

Do like the Argon though. Would recommend. On the carbon-ti's it's as nice as any bike I've ridden.
