Our good friend and Brand Ambassador extraordinaire Seth Patla has an affinity for single speed cyclocross that just might meet the clinical definition of addiction. We wouldn’t necessarily call him a junkie, but he has managed to drag his fellow Brand Ambassador (and wife) Maria into his dirty (literally muddy) habit, at least on special occasions.
Case in point: Having skipped the 2017 SSCX World Championships in Italy, our man in the orange SingleSpeedo packed up his and hers IVAN race bikes, grabbed teammates (and fellow REN Brand Ambassadors) John and Rick, and boarded a plane for the historic homeland of cyclocross and frites for the 2018 SSCXWC in Belgium. Click over to the PDXTI Blog to read up on Seth’s travel reports and check out a host of photos from the trip.
Trips overseas are made infinitely less expensive and more practical with S&S Couplers, a fantastic upgrade that is available for any REN frame. Below find a nifty little set of photos documenting some of the steps for packing the Patlas’ S&S travel bikes.
