Argon 18 Electron (medium 54cm)

Nitto RB-018, Kore

Argon 18, FSA

HED 3// Michelin // 23c

Velocity Deep V // Gran Compe // Gatorskin // 23c

165mm Sugino 75 // 46t Sugino Zen // Phil Wood BB

Brooks Swift Titanium // no name

Time Atac XS // KMC Kool SL

15 and 17 tooth EAI 1/8 cogs. 48x15 for rollers in the winter and MKS chain tensioners to hold it all in there.

So this is my A18 Electron. I didn't know much about the brand but heard good things and took a chance on a ebay listing. It's been a faithful beast for sure. Very tight geo as you can see, and faster than all hell. A few funny things... a Sugino 75 bb will cause the spider to rub and the front wheel will rub when run all the way down in the fork. Pretty minor. Love this thing and ride it rain or shine, all the time.

he means that his fork hardly clears a 23c. you should throw a 20 on there if you still have it.

this is one of the most well executed bikes on here. How are those argons?

and hot damn that saddle is amazing.
