i really like the krypton. they changed them up on the newer ones and look more like the gallium which i think look better. ive had it about a year and love it the only other person that ive seen around town that has an argon 18 is my dad he owns a gallium pro.

Why fear tomorrows, they may never come...
I just wanted to post an updated pic of my bike.
New stem & bars (3T ARX team & Ergonova Team)
New to me Zipp 303s (2007ish, obtained via barter)

That being said, I love this bike... I also bought a BD bike, swapped all the parts off with my Bianchi and then unloaded the BD bike with older components.
2011 Scott Addict R1. 13.9 lbs as shown. Have had it for a few weeks. Very happy so far.
And here it is with training wheels:
Yup, the downtube says SLUTT.
old bike, new frameset. Ridley Pegasus
The comfort is alright for long distance riding, I did a complete brevet series (200, 300, 400, 600, 1000 km) on it last year. Manouvering is a bit sluggish, I've had more agile bikes.
How is the stiffness on the Roubaix frame? I've been thinking of buying a new bike and it looks absolutely stunning.
1994 Trek OCLV carbon...just put the Forte Titans on today, 149.99 @ performance!...Big improvement in bearings over old stock Ultegra hubs and much lighter than the stock front matrix sonic 32 hole and rear velocity deep v 32 hole which came when i bought it. Commuter/trainer/daily ride
Do you like to roll down cielo a little bit and descend San Marcos or go straight back down? Gibraltar is a little bit sketchy at the top...

my new sig!
That Argon Krypton has quite a bit going on. How does it ride?
As I rode it today, pardon the iPhone picture. Trying to get the stem height figured out and riding on the trainer and short outdoor rides doesn't really facilitate that.

I have to trim the steerer a bit.
Down periscope here finally.
Might not be the lightest bike here but I sure can haul on it. Upgrading my engine before I upgrade my wheels.
