There must be something in Portland’s water supply that inspires so many of its young sons to take up the torch and start welding frames. They all seem to have an excellent eye for design and form as well. Argonaut Cycles is a fine example: this is one of the classiest looking bikes I’ve seen.
Antique white, anodised burgundy and leather. Add to that polished lugs and that Columbus Max decal which defines strength and durability. There’s a wonderful graphic element to Argonaut Cycles also, with that personalized ‘Handmade in Portland For…’ label on the seat tube. How proud would you be, knowing every stage in construction of this frame was dedicated to providing you with a sublime riding experience?
Ben Farver of Argonaut Cycles has developed an extensive interview process to glean as much information from you about your dream bike as he can, before even putting pen to paper. ‘This process accompanied by painstaking attention to detail and world-class fabrication techniques guarantees that your Argonaut will be one of your most prized possessions.’ Yes indeed. Spectrum Paint even matched the colour of the Max logo to the Chris King headset.
