If you have a Day One, check the crank-set for these markings. Genesis are offering to replace FOC - probably due to poor quality reliability

I had a very enjoyable half day in the New Forest recently. So, I am thinking of tyres with more tread and width for the cycling trails there. I have no plans for serious offroad adventures but some off road capability would be useful. With mudguards the bike will accept 28mm tyres and...
Anyone got a Genesis Vagabond? Im intrested in this machine as the reviews are excellent. Id be using the bike for light touring being a steel frame. Im wondering if you can fit 28mm tyres to the existing rims. Any advice welcome. Thanks
Does anyone know anything about the warranty on a Genesis frame? I thought they had a lifetime warranty, but checking the website now, it says one year. Has this changed recently (and if so, when?) or have I got this wrong?
This is far to good to be used for my commuting bike as I have to cycle to several different areas (not the nicest areas of Leicester) and I really worry about it being vandalised or stolen.
It has the Di2 gears and was 2k when new.
I've put it on eBay for £599, but would take offers around £550...
I’m looking for ideas for replacement tyres for the Genesis Longitude
Running the original 2.8″ Trailblazers on WTB i35 rims
Any ideas for a more general tyre for road/tow paths etc?
Will those rims accept a 2″ tyre?
I been riding around for years on my Kona mtb for local riding, but fancied something a little quicker with a pannier rack for shopping carrying families kit when we go slightly further.
So I bought a 2018 Genesis bike complete. With the cost being nearly as cheap as most bare frames it...
2014 Genesis Volant 56cm frameset full std spec covered aprox 100 miles from new according to the gentleman that I got it from and looking around it I would say that is being generous.
Claris 2 X 8 with a Shimano octalink crankset with 175 mm arms , tektro calipers . Alex r450 rims fitted with...
Genesis tour de fer 20, as link below. Paid £1499.99 and it hasn't been used for a few months because my wife has been ill. It's as standard apart from a new thomson seatpost, thomson seat collar, thomson top cap and a brooks c17. It's like new and hasn't been used for more than 5-6 rides.
Hi all. I mistakenly bought this from a well-known second hand shop, and didn't check the frame size beforehand. Ridden a couple times and I don't think my knees will ever forgive me!
2016 model Croix De Fer 20, as far as I can tell hasn't been tampered with or modified in any way. TRP...
I've all but decided to take advantage of the C2W scheme and have narrowed my choice down to two bikes from Genesis:
The Day One
As far as I can see they are the same bike, albeit with different forks and brakes. I'm leaning towards the Flyer, for mostly aesthetic reasons, and I'm...
Hi all. Sad circumstances in that I've had my second Croix de Fer 20 stolen. Despite fact its on gumtree for £100 I'm kind of thinking police aren't going to get anywhere if they haven't already. Those frustrations deserve a thread all of their own.
So, anyway, I'm torn between
I am having a clear out of my bikes, I have 3 for sale. Here's 1.
Here's my trusty steed, I added the top brakes as they removed from the spec that year as I like to have 3 riding positions.
I also changed the rear mech from the compact 105 to accommodate a larger rear cassette as I live on a...
I have my finger hovering over the 'BUY' button for last seasons Genesis Equilibrium 20 2017.
A very well specced, solid, beautiful steel frame.
It's my first proper geared bike.
I ride lots of multi-day backpack tours, triathlons and daily commuting.
I can find very few recent reviews on...
Crikey - this is a beautiful thing:
Thru axles F&R, decent hydro's.
Gearing too 'big' for me but that's fixable.
What a nice bike!
Finally got round to selling my beloved Croix de Fer.
I can't find the original specs anywhere, but the frame is Reynolds 725, and the fork is also cromoly steel.
I have upgraded the groupset to full 105 (the shifters and chainset it came with were tiagra) including replacing the...
Buying a new bike online, looking at a Genesis, but being very careful to get the right size. A 54 is recommended for my height in general for road bikes, which is normally listed as a medium frame. Genesis however list a 54 as a small and a 56 as a medium? Does mean that their 54 is smaller...
I'm always looking for a bit more for a bit less!
As some of you will know I've signed up for LEL. I've contemplated bikes, building one, buying one and eventually settled on using my tarmac with what adjustments I can to make it work.
However I've had a modest uptick in my finances, decided...
Up for sale is my 2013 Genesis Croix de Fer 54cm in very good condition, with just cosmetic wear from normal riding and storage - Not much as you can see in the photo's.
All the gears change very smoothly and the bike rides lovely and quietly. Both wheels spin freely with no damage or buckles...
What mudguards could I use for a Hub geared bike? I want some which can be taken off easy, just in case I get a puncture on the rear and need to take the wheel off.
I was thinking of the below:
However im not sure they could be fitted as the brake...
Not sure if any or many are aware but I treated myself to a 2014 Genesis cdf a few weeks ago and loved every mile I did on it apart from one thing ; the amount of spray it chucked up at any given time when in use .
I tried using some clip on race guards but she who must be obeyed...
I am looking specifically for a Genesis Croix De Fer 20 from 2016. Medium in Olive Green.
The newer model and the light CDF is easy to find but I particularly like the olive green.
I am searching but cannot find one. If anyone knows where I can get one, could you give let me know please.
