The bike travel/video gurus at Path Less Pedaled recently reviewed our Waypoint and Ivan models on their Bicycle Travel Channel. We get a lot of inquiries about the similarities and differences between the two bikes and it was great to have Russ put our two most popular models through the paces. The videos give a thorough tour around each bike, with field tests to compare and contrast the comfortable and confident stability of the endurance oriented Waypoint with the giddyup of the more aggressive Ivan.
Both bikes are set up in our preferred 1x configuration with Gevenalle/TRP brakes. Our workhorse Waypoint has redesigned dropouts for 142x12 and more inconspicuous rack and fender mounts, as well as our GX1 carbon fork and compatible Portland-built titanium rack. The warhorse Ivan was set up with maximum contrast, QR front and rear with our mud loving CX1 carbon fork and shod with high volume 650Bs.
