Anyone know much about this bike besides being the bike that was ridden in the Kona and broke the record on the bike leg. I am interested in doing triathlons and there are not many reviews on the bike. I like the fact it is stiff and nice looking and a pretty good price for a pro level bike. I still need to test ride and get fitted but if all goes well are there any comments you may like to add, i would like to hear your opinion, thanks.

Awesome Bike

I got an Argon 18 about three monthes ago, The bikes first Tri is in two weeks. The bike has earned a nickname, Rocketship!! It is an absolute thrill every time I train on it. I can't do a century on it yet but I am looking forward to the day that I do an Iron distance with it. Not to say that any other bike wouldn't give the same thrill, but I love it.

What is the bike built up with e.g. Dura-Ace, Ultegra, Zpps or Hed etc. Also what seat are you using, i just rode two long rides in a row and i'm still recovering from knee surgery so my @ss and knee are sore at the moment, it's been a while since i've been in the saddle.

Argon 18 setup

I'm running Ultegra, Carbon Strike aero bars , Fi'zik Arione Saddle and the old Mavic Cosmic wheels. I'm very happy with this saddle on my Roadbike but the verdict is still out on the Argon. I am 45 years old and still working on a comfortable Aero Position but this long saddle does come in handy because you can slide around on it quite a bit.

Sounds very nice. I have an Orbea Orca and i'm waiting to see how the knee performs in the next 4 weeks then if all goes well i'll order my Argon immediately. If you can and don't mind i would love to see some pics of your bike.

FYI.....Bikes do not break records, riders break records.
