Argon-18 are deep down the path of rideable data-acquisition bikes and this concept bike is a look into what road bikes may be like. To explain it in this caption would be impossible, but that straw seen sticking out the head tube measures wind speed and the disc brake calipers are fully integrated. The future may not be as far away as you think. Photo: David Rome.
  • Hey guys. Love my Cervelo RS for its high head tube. Cervelo don’t make anything like this anymore (AFAIK)… Anything close at the show that’s light, reasonable affordable & disc brake compatible?

    • I’m just finishing off a review of Canyon new Endurace that might fit the bill.

    • MMAster

      Check out Felt’s new VR series

    • philipmcvey

      Cervelo C5 perhaps? ‘Reasonably affordable’ is subjective though…

    • Tristan Brown

      Or try anything Trek these days. H2 geometry is all high head tube

    • Thanks for the suggestions guys. For reference my current frame is 58cm Cervelo RS (circa 2009). Just measured the head tube and it’s pretty much exactly 20cm. I actually thought this was very high by most standards but it’s good to see this kind of geometry is available (I have neck issues and can’t ride too low). I already run a few of spacers under the stem which is inverted (slopes up). It’s a barely acceptable ‘look’ ;)
      The Cervelo C5, Felt VR look good.
      Canyon Endurace is at least a couple CM shorter.
      This ‘H2’ thing from Trek is confusing. You go to their website and enter ‘H2’ in the search and are shown an Émonda. It’s got the same height head tube as a Domane which is still lower than I’m used to.

    The original AER headset was freaking difficult to get the preload right…

    • Dave Rome

      I had one, found it terrible. CaneCreek admitted to me that the first gen didnt work as intended.

    Dave Rome, Enduro Bearings teased a new bearing removal tool at Sea Otter this year. It was on their website for a bit but now it’s gone.
    Can you find out if they are still going to release it? You know you want one too!

    • Dave Rome

      Yep, it’s coming soon!

  • velocite

    I have no idea what ‘message Centurion is trying to send here’ James. But great pics..

    • philipmcvey

      ‘No pogo’, as in no up and down motion under pedal load which robs big bundles of a rider’s precious wattage and is bloody annoying to boot. It’s kind of what all dual-suspension designs have been working towards for the last decade.

      • velocite

        Thanks. Wet!

    I think that Aston Martin bike should have been called the “Storck Wankenario”. I know someone who would buy that. Not to ride of course, but show that he has money.

    • philipmcvey

      Agreed. I’d love to see a list of the design features Aston has brought to the table. I’m guessing ‘paint finish’ and ‘logotype’. I’d also say ‘vastly inflated price’, but that’s not really a design feature. Nor is ‘logotype’ when I think about it.

  • Legstrong

    Love the coverage as always! Any aero road helmet that fits XL head (Asian)?

  • ebbe

    Integrated disc brake callipers… nice touch, Argon18!

  • Robert

    Great reviews guys. Much better than the coverage we are used to from other sites.

  • David Milner

    The “CampyTech” (prototype?) front wheel on the Canyon Aeroad CF SLX Disc is pretty awesome, too, with that three-by-three spoke pattern.
