For sale is my 2016 Genesis Datum 20, size large.
I bought this bike last year as having been a road rider (Cannondale Supersix), I wanted something more comfortable for our awful roads, versatile for taking down the odd path, and able to take proper mudguards in the winter. Unfortunately having learned to drive in the meantime I've (shamefully!) hardly ridden it, doing only 50 miles or so on commutes. I'm now selling as it's taking up space and between cars and my first love of mountain biking I don't see myself riding it.
This is the 'pre-brexit' spec, better than the 2017 (cheaper crankset, brakes and wheels) and upcoming 2018 (cheaper brake rotors and wheels) models. The 2018 model is £2400 RRP and a lower spec than this! The frame is a stylish matt black carbon which in my opinion looks far superior to the newer ones. Much more discreet and stealthy. I have removed the awful wheel stickers which I think improves the look, but have left the subtle fulcrum branding on. I have also fitted black 3M to the rims and mudguard, invisible during the day but reflective for nighttime visibility.
The bike is completely stock except for the following (all included):
- 2 Elite matt black bottle cages
- Matt black SKS mudguards
- Some old SPD pedals
- Bar Fly 2.0 Garmin mount
The bike rides and handles beautifully, and has a much more secure but playful feel compared to a road or track bike. It has been kept indoors, and hopefully the photos convey the excellent condition the bike is in, essentially brand new. There are ZERO scratches, scuffs, or damage of any kind.
