7 Bikes for 7 Wonders | The Columbia River Gorge Bike

Posted by West Columbia Gorge Chamber on Tuesday, May 26, 2015

This summer’s 7 Bikes for 7 Wonders is gearing up for an exciting ride. Seven of  Oregon’s best bike builders were asked to build a bike for their assigned wonder and they are wonderful. Each bike will be hidden in their corresponding wonder area for a lucky adventurer to find and keep. This beautiful Argonaut Bike was built for the Columbia River Gorge. Read details about the Columbia River Gorge Bike below.

The bike, designed within a traditional road-bike framework, purposely doesn’t have a lot of specific elements that are only useful in one environment. It’s set up to accommodate 28cc tires and has disk brakes, but “there’s no compromise in any one direction – it’s not overbuilt for gravel so road riding isn’t fun, and it’s not too sketchy or unstable to take off the pavement,” Ben says. “It can take you to all the fantastic places in the Gorge, in a fast and fun way.”

The theme of variety extended to the bike’s finish, as well. The multi-color paint job on the bike accentuates the stark contrast of the landscape, going from the tan hues of the arid desert-like land out around The Dalles to the lush green of the Multnomah Falls area.
