FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

We love getting questions about the ARGO. These are some that we often get. 

How can I use the ARGO with my hydraulic brakes?

For hydraulic brakes, you have 3 basic options: 
Most popular - Replace your current hydraulic brake with a mechanical brake setup. This would allow you to use the ARGO Brake Split system. 
2nd - Use a detachable brake lever with the ARGO. You will attach the ARGO brake lever to your bar each time you need to haul cargo. It will take about an extra minute to add the brake lever and move your brake lever out of the way. Here is an example of the lever that needs to be used: https://slam69.co.uk/firma-bmx-v2-brake-lever-24765-p.asp 
Rare - If you do not need to break the ARGO and bike apart, you can have a bike shop lengthen your brake housing to allow the ARGO to use the hydraulic system.

Do you ship the ARGO to ___________? How much is shipping?

The fastest way to see if we ship to your country is to add an ARGO to your cart. And we also have a page dedicated to shipping.

In a word: No. The ARGO is not yet compatible with BB30, BB92, etc. 

Is the ARGO Cargo Kit compatible with mid-electric bikes?

We are working on a new connection for the ARGO Cargo Kit to mid-e assist bikes, but it is not currently available. 

What should I pump my tires (tyres) up to? 

We like the ARGO between 50 and 60 psi (3.4 to 4.1 bar). You may like it lower if you have lighter loads or slippery conditions. You may like it higher if you are carrying more weight or you love to go fast.
