    They look great nice one, so much for the 29" thing being a fad!

    Great thread, the Argon 29ers are awesome. Could well be a Nicolai groundswell with 29ers...

    Wow, that 29er with Lefty fork sure looks distinctive, like some kind of optical illusion where someone put a spare wheel close to the camera.

    Vertexto - how does the Gates go with (German winter) mud, in terms of during the ride and cleaning afterwards?

    My bike is very new, just had a few dirty days riding on the bike. So far it is awesome. The belt is very silent (can compare it to a clean fresh oiled drive train) if the belt gets very dirty with mud and sand it makes a little scrunchy sound (but even then feels better than a chain), after few minutes spinning it is as silent like before and feels again like a very clean, fresh oiled chain drive train. That is one big advantage in my eyes.

    When it comes to cleaning the bike there is another big benefit in my eyes. Just hose the dirt down with a soft brush and the whole bike looks like new. No waterresistent emulsion of grease and dirt on derailleur and drivetrain that has to be wiped away, no re-greasing - nothing.

    I wanted to create a very clean looking bike with low maintenance demand. I think it worked out. I will keep you updated!

    In my mind, a HUGE success for a very clean looking sleek bike, it is a stunner...

    Vertexto,

    that is a very nice Argon. What colour is this ? Are you running a Rohloff hub ?

    Do you mind me asking how tall you are ?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Testmaen

    Iīm running the bike with a Alfine 11 Speed. By now it works great. Iīm 186cm high with 92cm inseam, so I have very long legs for my height. The bike fit me like a tailormade frame The colour is silver anodised.

    My frame with slideable dropouts for singlspeed, Alfine or Rohloff (or Chaindrive if you like) it at 1,9..kg. The Argon CC for chain drive is about 100gr less. My complete bike is at 11,05 tubeless with pedals and bottlecage.
