When we first met the team from Argon-18 in 2009, their eyes popped open wide when we told them we are from Verona/Madison, WI. “Madison, Wisconsin!” They said. “We would love to get our bikes on one of the most challenging Ironman bike courses in North America”. After a few hours of face to face talking and numerous emails afterward, it was decided that we were a perfect fit for Argon-18 in Wisconsin. Since 2009, we've helped many athletes perform at their vary best on their new Argon TT or Argon road bike.
A bicycle must be light, rigid and comfortable. No more, no less. What really matters to us is to Argon, is to reconcile, in ideal proportion, these somewhat contradictory qualities. This goal and their ability to combine these divergent but necessary characteristics is what distinguishes an Argon 18 and makes it stand apart from other bikes. Their firm belief in the company’s values and in the directions they choose to pursue drives them to continually develop bike designs that are at once innovative yet classic, spectacular but refined. No more, no less.
In 2008, Guru Cycles approached our head bike fitter, Jessica, to start what is now, a long and for ever lasting relationship. Guru wanted to work with knowledgeable and educated people who understood how the human body moves and operates. Why? Because everyone moves and rides very different from one another. Knowing this helps with injury prevention, performance, power and years and years of cycling enjoyment.
Guru believes a bicycle is more than a piece of equipment. It is the ultimate interface between man and the road, one that should feel like a natural extension of your body. That’s why they craft their frames based on individual rider specifications. From carbon layup and metal welding to final clear coat, they do it all themselves in their ultra-modern facility based in Montreal, Canada. That allows us to sweat every detail with one goal in mind: to make you the perfect bike. The one that will unleash your full potential as a cyclist.
Two and a half years of building a relationship, we are very happy to be partnering with Alchemy Bikes. Through the large but small world of the bike industry and connections, it was a firm hand shake that took Rocket Bikes from being a potential partner to confirmed retailer for Alchemy Bikes. And we did not disappoint! Shortly after that firm handshake, we built a handful of beautiful, hand crafted, USA made works of art. From carbon fiber, to titanium and steel, these bike frames should not be overlooked. If you need or want a true, unique USA made bike frame, look no further than Alchemy Bikes.
A fundamental part of Boardman's philosophy is to provide you with the best riding experience each and every time you go out on your bike - whatever level you ride. Their range is continuously put through its paces by some of the very best riders in the world. They have continued to build upon their success and developed, fine tuned and extended the range to include highly developed carbon fiber frames. Each and every frame is finished with the highest level of components within its class - which gives you a machine that is designed to perform at a very competitive price.
"My promise to you is that every single bike will adhere to our three fundamental values. I work closely with the team at every single stage to ensure that all bikes offer the highest level of performance, utilize great design and are of a superior quality - the result is a truly world-class product throughout the range."
