Croix de Fer
This fine looking thing is the Genesis Croix de Fer and it’s the beginning of a new bike build project.
I'm selling my Genesis Croix De Fer 58cm. 2012 model in white.
Specifications for 2012 & 2013 unchanged other than the frame colour - Specifications and bike review can be seen here:
Geometry data can be seen here:
Very low mileage 300 - 400 max, and just serviced. Full documentation provided. Everything has been well looked after, only got it middle of last year, and had limited opportunity to use.
Genesis's Croix De Fer hardly needs an introduction. You most likely already know that it's a do-it-all bike, and that its credentials were firmly established in 2010 when Vin Cox got the Guinness World Record for riding it around the world faster than anyone had done before.
A budget kid brother to Genesis' popular steel road all-rounder, the Genesis CdF is a solid urban and light-touring ride, as long as you're not in a hurry to get from A to B.
The Genesis Croix de Fer has a good reputation; it was even used to set a world record when Vin Cox rode a Croix de Fer around the world. Genesis say the Croix de Fer is one of their most popular bikes, so they decided to introduce a little brother: the CdF. The frame has the same dimensions, but is made from Reynolds 520, as opposed to the Croix de Fer's 725.
