Argon e-114 Size concerns

Postby enderwiggan » February 6th, 2013, 7:23 am

Hello Flo, I was wondering if anyone has FLO wheels on their e-114? I'm thinking of placing an order but I'm worried about the size fitting. Thanks in advance.

enderwiggan,

Thanks for writing. The Argon 18 e-114 is definitely a tight fit. You may experience some rubbing while sprinting or riding hard. They fit on the bike, there simply isn't much clearance side to side.

I hope that helps,

Are both the front and rear wheel a tight fit on the e-114?
I own a e-112, which is essentially the same frame with a different front-fork

frenkie,

The rear wheels is the tight wheel. I didn't see any issues with the front wheel.

I was also concerned with this one (I have the e-112) and I measured the clearance at the brake track using my 19-mm wide rim and there was more than 10mm of space each side. With FLO's 24mm wide rims, I hope they'd be okey. I will take some pics as soon as my FLO wheels come in.

Thanks for doing this. I'm pretty sure the e-112 will be fine but it would be nice to have you post in this forum with your experience.

Take care,

Wish I had seen this before I ordered. Have an E-112 also. Hope it works out.

atticus715,

I suspect you will not have any issues. Please try the wheels on the bike before you ride them. If there are any issues with fit, we will take them back as long as you haven't ridden them. That said, I'm quite sure you'll be fine with the E-112.

Take care,

no problem fitting the wheels to the e-112 (this is the 2009-11 model), around 5-7mm clearance each side

the bad news is that i cant still figure out how to mount the cadence sensor without hitting the fairing (flo 90).

adrian,

Thanks for the update and the pictures on the Argon e-112. Regarding the Cadence sensor... that's a tight fit. That might be tough to get working. Is there anyway to mount the system closer to the bottom bracket and connect the magnet to the fairing?

Take care,
