2017 Argon 18 Electron
Are you looking to hit the boards to keep your power numbers up over the winter, or perhaps you are an adventurer looking to join the Red Hook Crit series. The Argon 18 Electron fixed gear track bike will give you the sort of high performance at a reasonable cost that will help make your fixie fantasies come true.
Made from triple butted Thermo tech aluminum, the Electron is a serious track bike made for intense efforts. Offering the lightweight durability that makes it an excellent workhorse in a velodrome, those qualities also allow it to segue easily to more urban settings. It comes with a classically track geometry that is size-specific, which means that the smaller sizes will have the same balanced, responsive handling that the larger sizes offer. The slightly higher bottom bracket also means that you will be able to keep pedaling through corners without worrying about pedal strike, something that will come in handy if you plan on using this as an aggressive commuter or fixed crit racer. The aero design to the tubing and the short wheelbase will make you feel like you are flying, accelerating in a snap and holding the momentum once you get up to speed.
The Argon 18 E99 aero carbon fork that comes with the Electron will offer the sort of aerodynamic performance you will want when slicing through the humidity of an indoor velodrome, while giving that carbon level of compliant comfort if you are taking this bad boy out on your urban commute. The English threaded bottom bracket will make sure that you can kit this out with whatever crank you want to use, whether you want to look very retro with a Campy restoration, or want something modern and flash.
The Argon 18 ASP-4500 carbon reversible seatpost will be included, increasing the customizability of the fit, and adding to the aero credentials of the Electron. Available in four sizes, you should be able to find the perfect setup for your size and requirements. Adding the Argon 18 Electron track bike to your collection will spice up your training routines and smooth-out your pedal stroke.
