New to TCR in 2015, Argon 18 has joined our line-up of high quality bicycles. Always a fan of boutique, craft and Canadian brands, Argon 18 fits well into the new TCR at Sunalta. Our relationship with Argon 18 started with a personal visit by the the founder of Argon 18, Gervais Rioux, Gervais was very interested in TCR becoming a dealer due to our expertise in bike fitting and appreciation of well designed bicycles. We feel that is important to know who is behind the brand that you are selling to your clients.
