Sram Cassette/Shimano freehub problem
Looking at speccing up an Ultegra bike with an Argon 18 gallium frame. Just don't know an awful lot about Argon 18. Can anyone give any insights? Any good?

I should say, it was recommended by a shop, but wanted to get a wider/unbiased opinion and not just one from the place that sell them.

We sell them but I own one...it's biassed I suppose but argon offer superb lot but you pay for it. The gallium and gallium pro are changing a lot for 2014 so be aware of that before parting with your cash.
The pro is an amazingly light and stiff machine which with ultegra comes in at roughly 3500 and offers awesome climbing and reliable descending. That said, I'd look long and hard at a felt f series Frd frame for similar money now.
not all carbon is the same.

Hi - thanks for the reply.
When you say changing, are you saying I should get in now with the 2013 frame or hold off?

Worth searching road.cc, we've written loads about Argon, including this review of the Gallium Pro http://road.cc/content/review/77437-argon-18-gallium-pro
And here's some info on the new lighter Gallium Pro for 2014 http://road.cc/content/news/90707-first-look-argon-gallium-pro-gets-ligh...
