And now for something completely different.......
After several weeks of thinking and researching and making decisions then changing my mind then becoming completely confused before finally tossing a proverbial coin I have ordered the following bits and peices;
None of these are my pictures because nothing has turned up yet.....
I'm going to give these Fusion 3 tubeless thingymabobs a try. Maybe I'll order some Atoms as well - some people are saying buy Fusions because they don't flat others are saying buy Atoms because they handle exceptionally well.
A set of Racing 1's to put them on. You can't buy B&W Racing anything in 2 ways so I've also bought a tubeless conversion kit for them.
A new SLR Kit Carbonio saddle to sit on
Another set of Ergosum LTD bars because I think they are the sh!t
A matching stem because I'm a pedant
A pair of each of these because I can't make up my mind which will hold my water bottles better..... or maybe which ones will look better on the bike.
A set of these because everyone reckons they are the sh!t and I need to find out if they're lying...... And also because they'll look pretty cool on the bike.
This groupset - because I just am alright! I thought I wanted Campy...... Okay so I still might get Campy - Just shutup about it!
And this frame to put it all on.....
It took me a long time to back myself into this corner so if you are going to roll your eyes at me then you're officially on my blocked list!
In all seriousness though - I have had so many good reports on this bike I just had to give it a try. I was looking for something a little different - and you really don't see too many of these things around so I figured I'd bite the bullet.
It should end up looking something like this - without the wheels and I think I'm going black on the tape.
If I never see another tubular again it will be too soon. At least that's how I am currently feeling about them - of course knowing me that will soon turn to - "oh mate! If you aren't running on singles then you aren't a real racer" or some such opinionated nonsense

Yoda puts object in the first of a sentance, not the verb.
The master would say: The build, you must wait for. Anticipation, you must enjoy.
Awesome bike, you got there btw.

KH1 - could you provide a scale shot of the frame (w/ or w/o fork & headset) for us?
Considering how the Argons use a proprietary headset/spacer system, it may be necessary to weight the whole module sans seatpost.
I think it would help all of us here. Thanks!
