Road to NAHBS 2016: Ben Farver of Argonaut Cycles

Updated (and still gorgeous) Argonaut road bike adds new T47 BB, flat mount disc brake standards

We had the chance to test ride and review one of the earliest Argonaut Cycles carbon road bikes. Even being such a young item in the brand’s stable, it was clear the bike is something special. Each is custom made for the rider, from sizing to carbon layup, and it makes for a great bike. […]

Mavic Celebrates 125th Anniversary w/ Custom Bikes by Argonaut, Indy Fab, Lynskey, Mosaic, Ritte & Seven

When you think about it, it’s pretty hard to believe that Mavic has been around for 125 years. That is, until you look at their list of firsts. At this point in cycling we take a lot of technology for granted, but there was a time when a rim that was simply made from aluminum […]

NAHBS 2014: Argonaut’s Award Winning Gravel Racer & Updated, Lighter Carbon Frames

Argonaut founder Ben Farver sent some fantastic photos of his new Gravel Racer for our pre-show interview, but seeing it in real life was even better.

Aether Apparel Re-Enters Cycling Market w/ Argonaut Video Promo

Until this popped up, my only exposure to Aether Apparel has been their monthly “marketplace” ad in Men’s Journal. Cool stuff, but didn’t realize they branched out beyond fashion-oriented-but-functional outerwear. Now, after shelving the item for a while, they’ve reissued their Union cycling jacket with updates and better materials. And they’ve kicked things off by […]
