A Pedalers Fork Argonaut Cycles Road with Dura Ace

When the team at Pedalers Fork became a dealer for Argonaut Cycles, they needed a bike that would operate as both an advertisement and a floor model / test bike for interested clients. While I love my matte-black Argo, stealth is not the best at advertising for the brand, so Gideon at Pedalers Fork cooked up a purple, flashy, chevron-inspired design for painter Eric Dungey to get to work on.

Since this particular model will be a test bike for inquiring customers, Pedalers Fork chose the traditional seatpost spec, rather than an ISP. The result is a flashy, yet classic stance with the brand’s name in bright silver on the downtube. With a painted PRO stem, a blue King, a purple seatpost collar, Mavic 125ans wheels and Dura Ace throughout, every detail has been considered… It’ll be sure to turn heads.

    From the side it looks like a modern take on the Barber’s Pole! Love it.

    Those bars are not centered #OCD

      Could be distortion/illusion. They are photographs. #justsayin

        That straight on close-up of the bar/stem interface is pretty clear……it ain’t a black/blue dress or anything

    wow.. worst paint scheme ever. a bike that perfect doesn’t need frilly purple ribbons to stand out from the crowd, just sayin’

    • DougHan

      Thought the same thing. Beautiful bike however, minus the paint scheme.

    Really like those argonauts, same for this one with the blue and purple. However the 3k finish on the headtubes somehow feels out of place..

    • http://theradavist.com/ John Watson

      Well, that’s not a cosmetic wrap like most 3k finishes. It’s the actual structural carbon.

  • Trevor Martin

    Is Ben playing around with different tube forms? Not sure why but this looks slightly different than the others with the seat post option…

      To my knowledge, it’s the same.
