Ren Cycles Ivan CX
2016 SSCXWC SPECIAL EDITION
More bike than we deserve.
This is the same frame currently ridden by just about every crazy fast
singlespeed racer in Portland. But better. Because it’s a special
edition with a bunch of flashy shit you can only do to titanium.
The first Ramones album came out 40 years ago yesterday. You know full
well that it was the first punk record. Punk is old and so are your knees. Titanium is forever – it’s not some disposable material like aluminum or plastic or your liver or a placenta. For a forever bike – you need this one. The Ramones never would’ve guessed that a gravel bike is different than a cross bike is different than a rain bike or that you wouldn’t be able to put a derailleur on your single speed when you get your walker delivered by Amazon Prime drone service. Why you wanna confuse the Ramones? Not cool.
This is THE bike.
Go ahead, put 42’s on it. Run gears, or don’t. Belt? Sure. Fenders? Yes please. Need a bike to bail you out of jail. Hold your hair back while you’re barfing?
We’d recommend you get the chef’s choice anodized model for that. Your current bike won’t love you forever, not like this.
SS / DH / BELT
2x/1x/SS compatible cable routing. Di2 ready. Gates Carbon Drive™ compatible.
Won’t rust. Won’t delaminate in the sun. Won’t recycle into beer cans.
ALL THE BOSSES
Fender eyelets and bridge mount. Downtube 3rd water bottle mount. Rack mounts.
This bike will outlive you. And let you add gears as your body slowly falls apart over the years.
As a proven band of screw ups, we’ve tried hard this year to surround
ourselves with the best of the best, and hide behind their talents. It
reminds me of something my mom used to say, “Please stop embarrassing
me.” Following that theme, our bike this year is way too good for us. We
don’t deserve to offer it to you. But we are.

There’s no need for a SSCX bike, a rain bike, a bikepacking bike. Ivan does all 3.
