I’ve learned a lot in the past two years and so has Ben at Argonaut Cycles. He looks at his made in the USA, fully custom carbon road bikes as a project that’s ever-evolving. With each frame, he learns more not only about his customers, but his own process. My Argonaut was perfection in my eyes and while I loved it, some things about it made it less than ideal for my lifestyle and by that I mean, I travel. A lot. At the time, Ben didn’t offer a traditional seat post, only an ISP…
Mute the music and just watch Sagan do his thing. Man, someone needs to get this guy racing cross again.
Man, I really want to see one of Field Cycles’ bikes in person and even take one on a quick spin one day, especially after seeing what just rolled out of their shop. The Sheffield Steel Peloton Road is a crit racer’s dream ride. Stiff where it matters and just flashy enough. Check out Field’s thoughts on this bike, along with some more photos below!

This past Sunday morning, women all over the world took part in Rapha’s Women’s 100 ride. Every year this globally-coordinated event challenges female athletes of all skill types to ride 100km together as a group.
… and I already wish I was back in Los Angeles, riding these roads. I really have become enchanted with that city and the people who call it home. Some of my closest friends live there and over the year’s, they’ve shown me what a magical place it really is.
Many thanks to my friends back in LA for showing me a good time. You know who you are!
I’m stoked to see this as a Vimeo pick!
“Distance Over Time follows the truly inspirational story of James Golding, a man who has beaten incredible odds to achieve extraordinary things. From weighing 6 stone and being too weak to walk 5 years ago to taking on one of the most savage cycling records ever undertaken, Spindle Productions followed James’ remarkable journey.”
Here’s the full length to Deux North’s latest Hunt video:
“Riding up the coast of California from Santa Cruz, Deux North’s 8 riders test a new bike built for every kind of road. After 2 days and 200 miles, the group meets the story’s narrator, El Chapulin (The Grasshopper) to listen to his story, tell their own, and compete in an event that he created over 15 years ago. On the final day. the 100-mile Grasshopper Adventure Series race serves as the finish line for Deux North’s Hunt 4. #SeekandDiverge”
Don’t miss Andy Bokanev’s photos from this fun looking ride.
Stainless road bikes always look like computer renderings, but this A-Train Cycles is very much obtainable in real life. See more at the A-Train Flickr!
This is, without a doubt, the best Eddy Merckx Professional restoration I’ve ever seen. Andy really took this job above and beyond, both in final build and historical documentation. Head over to FYXO for this insane Professional photoset!
