I cant afford both!

by skitza   May 26, 2014  

Ok so i'll put it out there cos i cant decide , i currently ride a carbon framed Forme Axe Edge comp with Campag Veloce with American Classic wheels which cost me £1400 , a friend is currently selling a carbon Argon 18 with Shimano 105 shifters and Accelro wheels which he brought last year for £1800 , both ride nice although his frame is a little smaller(and lighter) than mine.
So the problem is atm i can only afford one or the other so my question to you learned experienced cyclists is which would you go for?! Day Dreaming Confused At Wits End

Which feels nicer, to you, to ride? You're in the luxury position of being able to have an extended test ride, I imagine.
How much is he charging you for it?

Sounds to me like it's the thought of the bike rather than the reality.

The Argon 18 if it's a Gallium Pro has one of the lightest frames made, at 790g... but the frameset costs £1,800 so I doubt it's that one.
