About Argon 18 Electron Track Frameset
The Argon 18 Electron Track Frameset lets you take that next step to the world of fixed gear riding.
The Argon 18 Electron is the perfect gateway to the track for those riders wanting the best alloy fixed-gear offering at a sensational price point. Whether you want to take it only on the boards or venture out to the world of fixed-gear road riding, the Argon 18 Electron will do both in style and with the performance traits for which Argon 18 is well known.
The new aero tubing makes it more aero than ever. The seat tube and downtube are made for beating the wind - both outdoors and indoors - and the triple butted design reduces weight but maintains optimal rigidity. That's crucial when you only have one gear and a whole lot of grunt work to do!
Alloy rear dropouts ensure that durability is maintained, despite the potential for wear and tear with the fitting and re-fitting of the rear wheel. Argon 18's Argon Fit System (AFS) means a shorter wheel base, increased bottom bracket clearance and more aggressive seat and head tube angles for superior handling and incredible agility, while size-specific geometry ensures a well-balanced, ergonomic fit for every frame in every size. It all adds up to an optimally balanced blend of power and comfort.

More About The Manufacturer Argon 18
Argon 18 is a Canadian cycle manufacturer founded in 1989 by Gervais Rioux in Montreal, Quebec. The name is derived from the element, which is number 18 on the periodic table of elements; it's also one of six natural noble gases. After retiring as a rider, ex-Olympian Rioux opened a bike shop, where the brand was born. In 2001 they produced their first carbon frame and the brand is now distributed in 31 countries. Argon 18 sponsors German pro cycling team Bora-Argon 18 and debuted at the Tour de France in 2015.
