Hardcore bike porn...


I got my first tease of the Argon 18 E-114 at Interbike last year and I fell for it -- hard. I immediately told the boys at Argon that I needed to "test" this beast ASAP. By "test", I meant send me a bike to review and then let me keep it for a few months so I can do some races on it. They got me one of the first off the production line this February (Torbjorn got one before me, but I'm not complaining) and for the last few months I've been adding minor bells and whistles. At last I think it's finally done -- enjoy the finished product.

Zero comments? Nobody to make fun of your wheel bling? I don't believe it. I'm guessing just "fat" tire camo. Bring the eyes in... Bring the eyes in...

Beautiful bike....Can you give me an idea of the overall weight of your set up? How well does it absorb road shock? Do you find that the front end is as adjustable height-wise and as far as distance from saddle to cockpit as you'd like?
