    With bike sizing it's the top tube length that I take the most notice of. For me around 53.5 on the top tube is usually right.

    They list a 2017 20 disc at £1199 or the 2018 normal brake a £1399..(in White )

    I have one of those and it's even more beautiful in the flesh, and great fun to ride of course (I was trying to get the Equilibrium 10 through our Cycle to Work scheme but they couldn't get hold of one, so I asked if they could do me a deal on the Equilibrium 20 and they gave it to me for the cost of the '10'! - Even better is that it feels like under £600 because it's through the Cycle to Work scheme!)

    I ride a Titanium Van Nicholas Yukon, if I hadn't treated my self to my forever bike then I'd be more than happy with a Equilibrium 20, for me it's a steel version of mine and a cracking bike; although I'd like to see 50/34 with a longer cage mech' and 34t sprocket. When my 30 year old steel fixie finally retires I rather like the Flyer, effectively an Equilibrium Fixie.

    I have one of each :whistle: The Yukon was pre-loved though. Genesis was built to my spec from a frameset

  7. I bought the 2016 frame and did a custom build - lovely bike.

    [QUOTE 5176400, member: 43827"]I love my Equilibrium and looking at this thread I was wondering what practical or ride difference a through-axle would make. Are they starting to get widely used on road bikes?

    Reasonably so on disc braked bikes

    The majority of disc braked bikes once you get out of around12-1300 territory have TA's front and rear although a few are still clinging to TA front and QR rear on alloy bikes. Curiously Genesis persist with a TA rear on their Datums which are carbon frames. Not sure why.

    Brilliant things - I find them no slower than a QR to use. Maybe quicker. Plus once you've tightened them up it is super easy to shift the lever to pretty much whatever position floats your boat and most importantly the wheel goes back in the same alignment position with the discs every time.
