After riding the Krypton in medium size I wanted to try a more compact frame. So I had the chance to change my frame for a 2017 Gallium in small.

I rode the bike only one time and it was awesome. The geo suit me really well.

The stem will be changed as soon à I received the tool to remove the headset cup and the I will put a 120 mm -7 slammed.the -17 does not look that good.

The final weight with 11-32 Ultegra cassette is 6,39 kilos.


Groupset is Ultegra 6800 with mid compact crankset.
Wheels are NOS Easton EC90 SLX tubs
Vittoria corsa g+ tubs
Lightweight bottle cage
Uno -17 stealth with TI bolts
Seat post:Hylix 31,6 400 mm
Saddle:cheap Chinese will be change to PRO stealth Carbon railed
Cables:jagwire cg x-sl
Pioneer left side PM
Pedals shimano r8000 ultegra
Skewers:Lightweight

That's about it

Beau bike! Impressive weight for an ultegra build. These wheels must be soooo light

Very nice build and certainly an attractive frame. Argon 18 seems to be the brand to desire this spring given all the success of the Astana team :D

Once you get the headtube/stem sorted it will look spectacular..

Thank you, since last year TDF they seem to win and or entertain every race. I should get the tool to lower it next week so hopefully it won't look as goofy .
