Franco is a seasoned cyclist who puts down some serious mileage on his mountain bike turned all-terrain tourer. For his upcoming 3500km self-supported tour from Athens to Barcelona, he needed something more suitable for the diverse terrain he’ll encounter. After a few video calls and discussions about his needs and packing style, we decided that the Polyvalent was his best bet. Make sure to give Franco a follow on Instagram! He's been posting some fantastic videos from his trip that you won't want to miss. You can find a blog post talking about the whole build here.
