Small batch carbon frame maker Argonaut Bicycles has updated its gravel offering with the GR2 gravel racer.

As the name implies, the GR2 features race-ready touches that include an aggressive gravel geometry and a feathery overall weight of 16 pounds. It’s hand-built in Bend, Oregon. The frame fits up to a 38mm tire and is custom-built to your specifications, so you get exactly the geometry and features you want. It’s available as a frameset or a complete build. Notably, the bike features a T47 bottom bracket; Argonaut was perhaps the earliest adopter of this oversized threaded bottom bracket system. The GR2 looks snazzy too, but it comes at a super-steep price: $6,500 for the frameset and up to $13,000 for a complete build.
