Genesis Flyer Rant!

Discussion in 'Fixed Gear and Single Speed' started by Plomax, 8 Dec 2017.

  1. Forget your dealer and go through Genesis direct. I have found them to be very friendly and helpful.

    My used Genesis Flyer buy, now with a new seat and mudguards, think its a 2011 model lovely ride.

    3/32, you mean? Why would you want to? A good ⅛" chain like KMC B1 means more metal sharing the load. Even a bad one still has more sprocket to wear down.

    TBH I'm not sure there's a huge difference in longevity between 1/8 and 3/32 transmissions.
    Good that's it's getting sorted, although a shame it had to be!

    Still not resolved and the supplied mudguards lasted two weeks before snapping at the break bracket. Great bike to ride but getting increasingly frustrated with Genesis/dealer. Currently still not able to ride fixed and no mudguards - would buy my own but the bike is advertised as supplied with mudguards so currently refusing to.

    What else do you expect to happen at the break bracket?

    If the 'guard is the same as supplied fitted to the Genesis Skyline, then no surprise that it failed, as did the one on my wife's Skyline. Just fit a SKS guard.
