Argonaut and Abbey Bike Tools are collaborating on a 4-sided multi-tool with 4, 5, and 6mm allen keys and a T25 torx. Abbey makes some of the best bike shop tools, so you know the quality of the 4-Way will be top notch. See more at Argonaut!
There’s no doubt that Argonaut Cycles makes one of the best road bikes in the world and now, you can build your own dream bike at their new website, or at least design the frameset’s colors. Try it out for yourself and let’s see your designs in the comments.
Portland chef Chris Diminno is taking off for Chefs Cycle and is raising money for No Kid Hungry. As part of this process, he’s partnering with Bend, Oregon-based Argonaut Cycles to raffle off a complete bike, laced with Dura Ace. Head to the fundraising raffle site for more information and your chance to win!
Each year, Argonaut brings some very classy bikes to NAHBS and even though I loved the matte black and Olive Drab with King 40th build he brought, I couldn’t help myself and had to shoot this white beaut with SRAM Red eTap. Being a tall guy myself, I love seeing bigger bikes that still nail the proportions and aesthetics.
The best thing about Argonauts is they ride just as well as they look.
After owning a tri bike for years, Jesse finally decided to treat herself to a new road bike. It’d been a while since she had made a new bike purchase and after a lot of internet research, she decided on an Argonaut.
The frame selection, like the parts, came only after a lot of thought. Jesse went with Shimano Di2 hydro to make braking easier on long descents or steep canyon roads, King R45 Disc hubs laced to the super solid H+Son Archetype rims ensure her wheels will be solid and new 3T components offer a sleek look to this beautiful bicycle.
Since Argonaut is doing paint in house now, they can do just about anything you’d want, yet Jesse decided on a few color hits in the inside of the stays and fork leg. Since Golden Saddle is an Argonaut dealer, they made everything painless, from the ordering process to the final build.
Yes, bikes like this are easy to nerd out on, but even easier to ride. Oh and they’re terrifying to photograph on a windy day!
If you want a custom build like this and live in Los Angeles, hit up Golden Saddle Cyclery.
Like the Death Valley sign, this Argonaut Cycles road bike uses nature’s atmospheric layering as inspiration for a bright and sunny paint design, perfect for summer rider. See more at the Above Category blog!
Ben from Argonaut Cycles has been wearing this kit since the 2015 Rouge Roubaix and it made a splash on social media. Now, the same kit is available as a collab with Portland’s the Athletic. Even if you don’t have the dough for the kit, you can order a pair of socks! See the full collection at the Athletic!
Argonaut has had so many extensive features on this website, so I’ll spare you the introductions. What I will say though is that shooting a white bike with this setup is a godsend. That and the Argonaut-branded t47 BB standard… I still get goosebumps when I shoot these bikes and with good reason. Wow.
There are a lot of balleur bikes on this site, but Above Category takes it to another level. Right now, they have a series entitled “The Twelve Days of Breathtaking Builds” on their website and as you’d guess, there are tons of details to keep your interest piqued during this holiday season. Head on over and check out the first few bikes to be posted!
Look. I’m not a super über tech geek. I don’t really care about stiffness or compliance in terms of data or coefficients but I do like riding bikes and developing stories about them, in terms of my personal experiences. When Argonaut and Chris King asked if I wanted to come along for a very informal launch of a new bottom bracket standard, I had a few questions:
-Do we need another BB standard?
-Where is this launch?
-Will there be booze?
Two out of the three answers met my standards, so I agreed. (more…)
