This is a touring bike from Genesis but could be used just as equally for commuting. I bought it from new and I’m the only owner. It has 27 gears (triple front chainset and 9 speed rear cassette) and the groupset is Shimano Acera. It has disc brakes, comes with mudguards and the tyres are...
A beautiful, split top tube, hub-geared, steel do-it-all machine!
This has been my partners bike and has not been ridden in ~6 months (She's become quite fond of my CdF instead!). Rather than let it sit gathering dust I'd love for it to find a loving home.
It's had a curious life, I rescued it...
This thread is brought to you in association with OCD, anxiety and indecision. The road here has been shamefully long and tortured; although eased significantly by the input of those on Cycle Chat who have helped talk me through many of the issues, dilemmas and uncertainties that preceded the...
Having had my Genesis day one for a while now I had come to the conclusion it was too small. Even though this was the case I loved the ride. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a medium and one came up a month ago at a very good price. A trip to Bristol and I came back with yet another bike. While...
On FB Marketplace.
Were it not 300-odd miles away I'd probably have had this myself. Looks in great, barely-used nick; two paint defects or touched-up areas (?) on the frame notwithstanding.
FWIW this is the first year the 20 got Tiagra 4700 with its nicer shifters and better general...
I'm after one of these and am torn between the extremes of a cheaper, lower-spec, used example and a new higher-end model. I've whinged about this enough in other threads however, so no need to go over it again in this one too..
At first what's out there can be pretty confusing due to all the...
Nowt to do with me, but found this earlier on Bikesoup.
Sadly too small for me (and the XS frame size might be one reason for its price) but looks like a very good buy considering its apparent condition and spec (Reynolds 725 frame, 105 5800 groupset with full hydro disk brakes, £1800rrp when...
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
You might receive a similar letter from your supplier

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...
