I know I give Ben from Argonaut Cycles a lot of praise here on the site but with a product like his custom, made in the USA, carbon fiber #spacebikes, I don’t feel even the slightest guilty. Ben’s work is innovative and unique, two things that are hard to find these days…
Last night, Shelter Half held an open forum with Ben. People came, Ben talked and then everyone drank. It was great.
Check out a few photos in the Gallery!
After the ride, he wanted to do a bit of cleaning to his #Spacebike for his talk at Shelter Half. I thought the bike looked better dirty, but you know what people say about presentation.
Be there, 7pm sharp for free beer, finger foods and a fun Q&A session. See all the details for the showcase here.

It’s been a long two years for Ben from Argonaut Cycles but if he’s learned anything along the way it’s this: hard work and dedication pay off. In a lot of ways, the Argonaut Cycles road bike embodies the height of carbon fiber manufacturing. While this bike in particular might look like others that have been on the site, countless, minute changes have gone into making it unique. The design process and the final product are always improving.
Manufacturing in the USA allows Ben to tweak the layup process and continuously offer his clients the best carbon fiber road frame. Ben’s a good friend and personally, I’m very partial to Argonaut, so I took this bike out of the Eurobike tradeshow to photograph it. See more in the Gallery!
Guten tag! I have found the internet…
It’s Eurobike and I have no idea what to do here. Well, that’s not true, I have a few clever posts up my sleeve. After 12 hours of madness, I’ve made my way through most of the show, ran into some people, saw some cool shit, exhausted my shutter finger and the first flask filling #FFF. I managed to get some great shots, including the new White Industries anodized hubs, the return of turquoise Chris King, some rad Tune products, a sexy LOOK, Bear Grease, #Partybrand, body-painting, AWOL, beer, beer and beer.
While I’m working on more content, how about some randomness from the first day? I thought so…
I’m so bummed I missed this!
“On Friday July 19th, Ben Farver spoke about his process at Argonaut Cycles at Mission Workshop. Farver started with a short overview of his history and the company’s, then went into answering questions from those present.”
Go go go Argonaut!
I’m so pumped on this Argonaut book. I’ve got the physical copy and it’s one of the best pieces of branding to come from a cycling company I’ve seen. Brian’s film photography might have something to do with it. Might..
“Brian Vernor did an amazing job capturing Ben’s vision and passion for ride quality and life on the bike. Argonaut is excited to publicly release the book, as only a select few have physical copies. Many thanks to Brian and David at Wilderness for helping us put this project together. We hope you enjoy it.”

Stoked to finally see some of these photos. Brian’s work is always inspirational. Here’s some information from Argonaut:
“We invited Brian Vernor up to Portland a few months ago to turn his lens on Argonaut. The book captures the essence of the brand and as usual Brian did a fantastic job. We produced a very limited run of books which we will have on hand at NAHBS. We will be releasing the digital version on March 5th so everyone can enjoy the wonderful work that Brian and David from Wilderness put together for us.”
See more teasers below and once the digital book is live, I’ll link to it.
