I am speachless - what a gorgeous machine. I have to say I think that bike looks 'better' than anything in the TDF stable......... Dumbstruck (and extremely envious) Porn on two wheels. Tissues please.
Well done with the choice.

a public thanks to Paul @ www.bikeleasingcompany.com

a pleasure to deal with and made the setting up of the lease a simple affair.

some people will be turned away thinking of the long drawn out processes of setting up leasing..but it is not the case with bikeleasing company and I enchorage anybody who is looking at a new bike to check them out. you will not be dissapointed.

A number of cyclists who read this forum have been in touch asking us how much an Argon 18 Gallium Pro Frameset costs to lease. We thought it might be helpful to post the information here for you.

We currently have 2012 models on a special offer on 2 year leases at:

5 payments of £216.67 followed by 18 payments of only £17.67 per month.

Let us know a spec if you'd like a quote for a built bike.

Problem is that is going to cost £1400 to lease the frameset for 2 years but i could buy the thing for £1800 and still have the frame after 2 years...?

then you can pay an ammount and keep the frameset...but would you really want to?

lets say, it costs £600 more to keep the frameset so you end up paying the full amount retail, would you really want to keep it? as you wouldnt get 400-600 to sell it on after 2 years of use..or would you rather pay the 400-600 on a deposit for a new one?

I never use anything longer than 2 years so its ideal for me.

Shitaroo that is sweeet! Blimey that's sexy. Are you going to race it? Might stick out a bit if it's just for sportives and the club run!  4

If you replace every 2 years I suppose it's great quango! My frame is coming up to 2 years old and I am considering changing the wheels but will probably keep the frame until it gives out or I have some money for a new bike!

Wish I had money/...

Leasing at this price and being able to afford changing every 2 years!
Quango2008 must surely work for a quango to be able to afford such?

£41 is not a lot of money, id spend that on crap every month with no problem at all. I'm a buyer for a computer company so not made of money..otherwise I would have bought it outright.
