Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

NBD - Argon 18 Krypton Pro

Picked it up Saturday, and got 2 rides for a total of 70(ish) miles this weekend,
A couple of quick pics, and I will get something more out there when I have a bit of time... first impressions, immediate and planned changes / modifications, etc.

Freshly aquired

In the wild, first ride.

Beautiful Bike. I've been looking at Argon 18 for a gravel bike purchase.

That is one good-looking bike. Love how the bottle cages echo the red around the logos.

Nice bike. The only thing that ruins it is the HED decals. It is the white highlighting of the decal that ruins the aesthetic. Other than that, it looks like a great bike. Nice choice.

I like the wheels. But I’m biased; I have the same decals on my Jets.
