Genesis bikes…For escape…For adventure!
The Great Adventure!
For as long as we can remember, the best cycling adventures have happened off the beaten track. The road to adventure isn’t defined, doesn’t follow a trail, and more often than not isn’t even a road at all. It’s whatever you make of it and that’s what our bikes are ready for.
Genesis Croix de Fer 20 £1699
One bike to rule them all. The original do it all go anywhere bike is back and more capable than ever before! From commuting duties during the week then epic, multi-terrain adventures at the weekend, the Croix de Fer 20 is a capable and adaptable beast that rarely gets fazed whichever way you point it.
The heart of the bike remains a complete Reynolds 725 frameset, defined by its reliability wherever you ride.There are however a few updates to add to the Croix de Fer’s versatility. The ability to run up to a 45mm rear tyre and a 50mm front tyre on the provided 700c rims increase the all-terrain ability of the Croix.
If you want to experiment with 650B wheels, you could run up to a 44mm rear tyre and a 50mm front tyre.Standard QR dropouts mean your 9mm wheelsets can keep turning for another few years – and the practicalities don’t end there.
The drivetrain is 2 x 10 speed and features a 46/30T double chainset, an 11-34T cassette and RX400 derailleurs for reliable, smooth shifting.Tubeless ready rims and tyres, a third bottle mount, rack and guard mounts and fixings for Anything Cages on the forks complete the package.
