Argon 18 Helium Road Bike

5/5 (1 Reviews)


Product Description

It’s a comfort bike that combines two often mutually exclusive characteristics: first, the efficiency and nimble road manners of a top-end road bike and second, outstanding stability and a rare capacity for soaking up bumps and road buzz.

Strengths:    Comfort. Great performance for a plush bike. Snob factor.

Weaknesses:    Can't find them in the US.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. It climbs great for a plush road bike. It is a very comfortable ride without a huge sacrifice in weight or stiffness. 17 lbs all in for my XL bike. It's not a racer but it is close enough and the added comfort is a big bonus.
I am a big rider at 6'4" and the bike handles my weight really well.
Plus, It looks cool and I have never seen another one in CO.
I got a deal on the bike at $1800 for Dura Ace and all carbon. Can't beat that.

Weird Ridley Helium clamp

So I bought a Ridley Helium recently and ended up with this mystery part that I have no idea what its use is. Thought it was a number plate holder at first, but it is facing the wrong way if you clamp it to the bike. Any Ridley owners get this with their new Ridley? :confused: [IMG]http://i103 ...
