Ever your faithful companion, Brodie's Argus will see you safely home, whether it's a trip across town or a multi-year trek around the globe. The butted chromoly touring frame and trekking fork are lively when you ride unburdened, but it's when you're got a load that the Argus really shines. A full set of rack and fender braze-ons lets you pick and choose your luggage (sold separately). Beefy Alex rims and Shimano hubs carry you and your gear with ease while a pair of high-durability Kenda tires reliably roll out the miles. Shimano components, triple chainrings, and a wide-range 9-speed cassette offer 27 mountain-pass-conquering gears, while powerful Hayes disc brakes ensure that you and your gear make it down every grade safely. Long-distance riding is all about comfort, so the supportive Brodie saddle and dialed ergonomics are an essential part of this faithful companion.
