Argos Cycles fresh from Bristol since 1973
All Argos frames are hand built on specially designed jigs, which ensure no stresses are built into the frame whilst brazing.
Tubes are mitred on a lathe to ensure accuracy. The frame tubes are then assembled on the building jig, without lugs, and all joints are inspected for the fit of tubes to each other, and frame angles are checked.
The frame is then dismantled the lugs fitted (where appropriate), and then re-assembled on the jig, thus ensuring that all joints are perfect. Whilst this is time consuming it does ensure that all Argos frames are built to the highest standard of quality on which our reputation rests.
