The Twelve Days of Breathtaking Builds: Day Six - The Surgeon's Argonaut

by Above Category Collaborator |

Halfway points. Sometimes they're celebrated. Sometimes they're dreaded. Sometimes, like the 11km sign in a 20km TT that's going really well, they're a moment of elation as our power ticks upward and the Slayer pounding in our head amplifies. That's how the Twelve Days of Breathtaking Builds is going. No, this isn't a ranking, but rest assured, like a fireworks show, there will be a finale. And it will be mind-melting.


TODAY: The Surgeon's Argonaut graces the series. The Surgeon first came to us with his previous bike needing some love. We gave it that and more, until The Surgeon eventually caved to the siren song of a custom Argonaut. This one is a little louder than Day Two's black-on-black number, with alternating violet and green hues punctuating the lustrous white basecoat. Accenting the build are violet White Industries hubs custom-laced to Zipp 303 rims, giving additional longevity to the wheelset and panache to the build. Wrapping up the wheels are Vittoria's now-discontinued Corsa Pavé tires, with eecycleworks' trick brakeset bringing the Bend-born bottle rocket to a halt. SRAM's featherweight Red 22 group makes a reprieve in the series, complimenting the Zipp hoops nicely. And finally, a fiz'i:k 00 carbon cockpit, because there's no substitute for that saddle - or that seatpost. The last words on this bike? CeramicSpeed bottom bracket, pulleys, and King Ti cages. It's all about the little touches.
