ARGON TR PINION
Anyone who demands absolute reliability from their trekking bike for the big tour and everyday use knows immediately why a gearbox firmly integrated into the frame and a maintenance-free GATES timing belt simply make a lot of sense here. In the Argon-TR we combine our many years of experience in frame construction and our love for transmission bikes and create a truly unique trekking bike frame. With the gigantic transmission range of the Pinion P1.12 transmission and the legendary efficiency of our frames, no mountain is too steep and no serpentine descent too fast (there are no limits up and downhill), whether with or without luggage, whether on the way to work or on an adventure tour in the Gobi Desert. Our Argon TR PI is a true NICOLAI in every detail, with exceptionally high manufacturing quality, legendary robustness and durability and an unmistakable appearance. A real all-rounder with which you can enjoy long tours, collect kilometres and discover the world.
For all those who want to explore and experience the world by bike without worrying about maintenance and service, we have the Argon TR PI in our program. A bike whose relaxed geometry is designed to pedal light-heartedly even after hours in the saddle. The low maintenance of the Pinion P1.12 transmission and a GATES timing belt turns the already reliable Argon TR into a real carefree bike. Whether as a city and everyday bike or as a real trekking bike for adventurous bike expeditions – the Argon-TR-PI is always ready. As with the Argon TR, it is up to you whether you prefer to build up the frame with a comfortable suspension fork or a light rigid fork. Balanced, safe handling always remains the same.
With its specially selected multi-butted aluminium tube set, the elaborately hollow milled, two-part HOLLOW-WELD Yokes on the rear, the CNC-milled dropouts and the self-developed pinion bracket, the frame of the Argon-TR-PI receives the same attention and attention to detail as its MTB siblings. Because what a mountain bike does quickly and safely on the trail is not out of place even on a trekking bike. High frame stiffness is particularly important when you want the bike to be safe and precise even when heavily loaded. And in this respect, the Argon-TR-PI is guaranteed to be one of the best in its class. Because as a true NICOLAI frame you have a reputation that you can only live up to with exceptionally high production quality and first-class driving characteristics. Because we are 100% committed to the quality of our frames, the Argon-TR-PI – like all NICOLAI frames – comes with a 5-year warranty.
The Pinion P1.12 transmission with its transmission ratio bandwidth of 600 % covers the entire range of applications for this bike. No matter how steep the climb or how heavy the luggage is, with the P.1.12 transmission you always have the right gear available. Thanks to its completely encapsulated construction and the maintenance-free GATES belt drive, you no longer have to worry about the weather. Snow and dirt? Doesn’t matter! In the PI configuration, the Argon TR is a real endurance runner… without cleaning, chain lubrication and maintenance.
Of course, the frame already offers all mounting points for carriers, mudguards and drinking bottles ex works. With the five standard frame sizes (S to XXL) we already cover a size range from 1.60 m to over 2 m. If necessary, however, different custom geometries can also be implemented.
As with all NICOLAI frames, the customer has all possibilities of individualization. For the finish alone, a wide variety of powder coatings or anodised colours are available, plus the freely selectable decors and, at an extra charge, even the small parts anodised in the colour of your choice (“Extra Love parts”). More individuality is really impossible.
NICOLAI Argon TR PI – our endurance runner bike for everyday and trekking use
If after a few years of hard work a bearing on a Nicolai frame needs to be replaced, a RADO needs to be replaced due to a fall or a frame needs a new coating, the NICOLAI service staff is the right contact. Since we at NICOLAI manufacture all small parts on our machines, we can also produce spare parts for older models if required. We therefore guarantee spare parts availability of at least 10 years for all Nicolai products.
