Out of those three I would go the Argon, I just think they are a little classier, not to say the others arent hot.

 

Choice of other bike would be a pinarello montello but frameset is a lot more than these babies, up near $5500 I think from memory

I went for the Argon, looks the goods, and has that rarity factor ATM. I would be more than happy with the Cervelo, currently being a happy Cervelo P3 owner. The Ceepo is a fine looking bike, but because I don't know much about the manufacturer and background of the bike, I would be a little cautious about buying one. Most likely I would wait until there are a few around and get some feed back.

Id pick the Argon,, but in saying that I am extremely happy with my BMC and for the first time in a long time do not lust after another bike.

Hiltz,

 

Is this poll so you know which bike will have the best re-sale value on Tri-Trade in 6 months time?  :lol:

I have a couple of size Small Avanti's to sell if you would like one?

 

Both ultegra, both 2007 models, one Kona TT machine, one Corsa roadie...

:lol: Was thinking the same thing, though many items get posted for sale before hiltz even has them yet, so I think 6 months is a bit optimistic...

 

Do any of the above honour a warranty beyond the original owner?

I can't understand the fascination with the Argons. Having seen an E-114 up close I couldn't help being put off by the horrific tube widths & shapes. My next aero bike (like my current one) will be designed by the experts...Cervelo.

Lets see if Argon are ever brave enough to publish the chart they had on the booth at Taipei. It claimed to be windtunnel drag figures and will get ripped to shreds if seen by the educated public. If the figures were correct and we normalise for the odd speed they used then the performance is exactly what *you* would expect

I think i am partial to the Cervelo, tried and tested... They have a great warranty that they also back up... If i can get one with a red fork that'd be my pick by far (would look good i think)

 

But i like the look of the Argon the most... But have only seen one in the flesh and know SFA about them really... But maybe its not so "aero" by the sounds of things

 

the Ceepo, well I have been thinking about taking a gamble with one just to see... but then that could really turn out to be one very expensive gamble and I wont have the money to replace it when i have to start paying rent and things again....

Malvern Star... Pppphhhh... i have so much more class than that... Apollo. :lol::lol:

 

i have realized this man cant live with just one bike..... I need training bike (apollo) race bike (?????) and single speed to ride to and from work, also used on the rollers... Then I figure if i decide i want to try an ironman apollo wouldnt be the best way to go...

 

I dont know who i was trying to kid when i thought that....

Which frame has the geometry that suits you best?

 

these are for the equivalent frame sizes

Cervelo P2C :- (size 54)

seat angle = 78deg (rear seat position) or 75deg (front seat position)

head angle = 72.5deg

chain stay length = 380

top tube length = 530

wheel base = ?

weight = ?

 

Ceepo Stinger :- (size medium)

seat angle = 77deg

head angle = 72.5deg

chain stay length = 390

top tube length = 530

wheel base = ?

weight = 1880grams

 

Argon18 E112 :- (size small)

seat angle = 76deg

head angle = 72.5deg

chain stay length = 400

top tube length = 535

wheel base = 983

weight = 2000grams

 

 

or should I just say which has the paint job you prefer? :lol:

Hiltz,

 

website says $2800 for the frame set.

 

you're right - stinger hasn't been tested on the market, however, checkout this article for a review on the bike.

http://ceepouk.blogspot.com/

 

i have ridden the stinger and thought that it wasn't too different from the venom. good power, great stiffness and very smooth. the stinger's design base is the venom.

 

andy - you are correct. individual prices can be done through me as long as i don't have a dealership in that city (that would be most cities :lol: ) and those discussions not for open forum.

 

best marketing for ceepo, racing

 

good luck with the decision, they are always hard

Hiltz, have the same dilemma here and hard to choose between them.

 

Each have their advantages.

 

Might come down to which fits the best?
