Who says we can only mountain bikes and only wild? Although we are really predominantly at home in the MTB sector, there is no reason why our expertise in frame construction should not be applied to other areas of cycling as well. The Argon TR is a real trekking frame with all the details you need for the big tour or even for everyday use. But it is also a genuine NICOLAI with its exceptionally high manufacturing quality, unmistakable appearance and the many additional options. Long tours, collecting kilometres with pleasure and discovering the world with all freedoms – that is our Argon TR.
Cycling has more than just one orientation. For some it is flow and mastering technical trails and for others it simply meant exploring and experiencing the world by bike. For the second group of drivers we have the Argon TR in our program. A bike whose relaxed geometry is designed to pedal happily even after hours in the saddle. Whether as a city and everyday bike or as a real trekking bike for adventurous bike expeditions – the Argon TR is always a highly versatile and reliable bike. Part of his concept is that you can build it with a suitable suspension fork as well as a light rigid fork without affecting its balanced handling.
With its specially selected multi-butted aluminium tube set, the elaborately hollow milled, two-part HOLLOW-WELD Yokes on the rear end and the CNC-milled dropouts, the frame of the Argon TR 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 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 – like all NICOLAI frames – comes with a 5-year warranty.
Of course, the frame already offers all mounting points for carriers, mudguards and drinking bottles ex works. The standard frame comes with sliding dropouts that allow you to easily mount and drive classic derailleurs, low-maintenance hub gears and even a Gates Carbon Drive timing belt. After all, you never know on which adventures the Argon TR will still accompany you in the future.
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 – our 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.
