Genesis Aether 10, 2010, 52cm
This bike is lovely, super smart and sleek road bike for busting round town and getting some road miles in. Have a look at the photo's and you will see that it is in excellent condition.
This is a mid level road bike.It is for entry level racing - as it is more confortable (slightly shorter in the top tube and slacker) than full blown race and tri bikes, more confidence inspiring to get into road rracing or triathalons.
The more comfortable geometry makes it an ideal town/commuting bike as it's easier to look around in the traffic and is great for long days rides or cyclo-cross if you put nobbly tyres on. In fact it is essentially the exact same frame as the Genesis Vapour Cyclo-Cross bike. Bit of a do everything bike.
Retail price - £650
My selling price - £375
This is a unisex bike. As the geometry is a little less racey it is fine for women - I am female! But it is not intended as a ladies bike.
I bought this bike last October, for a bit of training getting to work and back. I used it for less than two months before I was told I couldn't ride dropped handlebars due to the arthritus in my wrist. I needed an operation and road biking was causing too much damage. It has not been used since xmas and I have not decided that it will have to go, road biking is not for me.
I can arrange postage but that will require payment from the buyer. I would prefer collection, I live in Bristol. I can deliver if not too far away or on route while heading off biking or working.
