Ben Farver started his bike building career working with steel in 2007. He built bikes out of steel because that’s the material he loved to ride, and felt had the best overall ride quality. However, the quest for more performance eventually led Ben to carbon, but not the sort of carbon you find on the racks of most bike shops. Carbon piqued Ben’s interest not so much because of the ideal strength to weight ratio, but instead because of the nearly limitless potential for customization.
Nearly 10 years later, Ben and the team at Argonaut Cycles are building bikes that retain the feeling of the original steel bikes made in the early days, but lighter, stiffer where it counts, and with a ride quality that we feel is truly transcendent. Every Argonaut is unique to the individual owner. Every Argonaut rides like an Argonaut.
