PINE Field Trip: Argonaut Cycles

Wednesday, May 18th @ 9:00 am

| Free

Interested in taking a behind the scenes tour of some of our favorite bike and ski partners in Bend? Pine Mountain Sports would like to invite you to be our guest at our next Pine Mountain Sports Field Trip!

 

Join us on Wed May 18 for a 2-hour tour of Argonaut Cycles

Ben Farver started his custom bicycle building career in 2007. Nearly 10 years later, Ben and the team of 18 at Argonaut Cycles are creating some of the best carbon road and gravel bikes on the planet and every one is designed, tested and built at two facilities here in Bend, Oregon.

During this PINE Field Trip we’re going to track a custom Argonaut throughout the entire process from initial design to assembly and shipping.

To do this we’ll start our morning at their Northwest Crossing facility that’s just south of Crow’s Feet on Lolo Pass. Arrive around 8:50A if you want to take advantage of the Argonaut espresso machine! At 9A, we’ll learn a bit of Argonaut history and what led them to their current and very unique method of producing carbon parts and frames. At this facility we’ll check out their CNC machining and get a tour of their carbon production facility.

NOTE: We’re going to visit both facilities, so we’ll take a 20 minute break around 10A to pedal or drive the 2 miles to their assembly and paint location. This is in the yellow building next to Prost at 30 SW Century Drive…

Once we reunite at their second location we’ll see their unique, frame assembly stations, and follow the path that a fresh Argonaut frame takes through their paint booth to bike and parts assembly to packing and shipping. Our tour will end here by 11A.

Bonus: Attendees of our PINE Field Trip to Argonaut Cycles will be able to book an appointment to reserve and demo an Argonaut bicycle at no charge via their local Test Flights program. Sizes are limited, and we’ll give you the details by tours end.

RSVP REQUIRED: This PINE Field Trip is limited to just 10 people so you must call us or come by to put your name on the list and reserve your spot at 541-385-8080.
