For sale is a Brand New 2008 Argon18 E-112 in size Large.

o The E-112 is constructed in the same mold used for building the E-114. Both bikes thus share the same shapes, apart from the fork. However, the pronounced ridges on the E-112 fork allow the maximum possible aerodynamic integration with the frame and rider, with a conventional headset and handlebar configuration.

As measured in the wind tunnel, here are the aero gains, compared to the E-80, twice a world triathlon championship winning bike:

o 5% into a on-axis headwind and an average of 13% improvement in sidewinds.

o A formulation developed in the context of project Element 114, 5606 offers properties similar to those of 6006, used in building the E-114.

o 5606 is used exclusively in building the E-112 and meets the very stringent requirements for manufacturing tubes and sections having a pronounced aero profile.

o The inherent vibration-absorbing qualities of 5606 HM lend extra comfort and stability to the frameset, particularly on rough surfaces.

The Argon18 E-112 has been ridden to numerous world championships and won the local Kansas 1/2 IM by Sam McGlone

Full carbon frame and fork. Bike is Ultegra/Dura Ace Mix with Tektro carbon fiber brake calipers and FSA cranks. A great set of Mavic training wheels are wrapped with Michelin Pro Race 3 tires. Profile T2 aerobars and wing base bar. Internal cable routings keep the bike as aero as possible.

Asking $2700
