New bike love – Litespeed Archon C1 Carbon Aero Bike

The kiddos approve of the new frame

Just got my new frame in this weekend – a Litespeed Archon C1. Litespeed is well-known for their titanium bikes, but this is their first foray into carbon. This bike is all about aerodynamics:

  • Aero fork
  • Aero down tube and seat tube
  • Aero fairing for the water bottle mount
  • Aero seat and chain stays
  • Internal cable routing
  • Pinched head tube.

I’m building it up this week, so expect a full review in a month or two.

  3. How did you manage to do the internal cabling?

    • This version (the original Archon CR1) came with internal cable routing. They went external on the next year’s model to shave a little weight from the frame.
