A Road Bike Is the Sum Of All Parts

All builds include a Chris King headset and bottom bracket, ENVE cockpit, ENVE / Chris King wheels, and the saddle and pedals of the customer’s choice.

“A road bike is really only as good as its weakest component, and we want every Argonaut rider to get the most out of their custom bike. In order to make sure that happens, we feel it’s extremely important that every bike leaves Argonaut HQ 100% dialed with components that we’ve tested and believe in.” - Ben Farver, Owner | Builder of Argonaut Cycles

Argonaut’s dialed in process of making some of the most beautiful and precision-crafted carbon fiber bikes in the world will not change. This unique process begins with individual pieces of pre-impregnated carbon fiber laminate. These plies are laid on a rigid latex bladder with specific orientation, and molded using Argonaut proprietary, adjustable aluminum clamshell molds. From scratch, every time, every customer.

The cost is the same regardless of the gruppo or brake setup, with an MSRP: $14,500
