Argon TR is a versatile frame perfect for touring, trekking, or commuting. Developed with the same frame building expertise as Nicolai's renowned mountain bike lineup, Argon TR delivers comfortable, relaxed geometry and exceptional frame stiffness that allows the bike to shine whether set up as a daily commuter on long-range tourer.
Nicolai's GPI series includes the addition of Pinion's P1.12 12-speed gearbox and Gates Carbon Drive belt system, further increasing the versatility and durability of the TR frame. This fully-integrated drivetrain provides an ultra-wide 600% gear range while simultaneously reducing the maintenance burden associated with owning a bike. The gearbox unit is entirely sealed and requires virtually no maintenance, while the belt lasts twice as long as a chain, and doesn't require lubrication.
Frame and drivetrain combos include the Pinion P1.12 Gearbox (Black, colors available for $165 surcharge), forged crank arms (170 or 175mm), twist shifter, front and rear sprockets, and belt tensioner. Because they are entirely built-to-order, Nicolai frames are available in any color imaginable and with customized sizing and geometry. Please indicate whether you’d like standard (powder or raw) or anodized paint, and standard (S, M, L, XL, XXL) or custom sizing.
Please allow 14 weeks for delivery of your built-to-order frame.
