Hi, does anyone know what font Genesis use on their Equilibrium decals. I've got an Equilibrium 10 and want a couple of name stickers for it but want something close-ish to the writing on the frame.
I tried to contact them through their website "Contact us" but (as is usually the case with these things), no response as yet (couple of weeks ago).
Considering getting a steel bike and the Equilibrium 20 looks like it might hit the spot, when I can find a LBS that actually has it so that I can try it out.
Does anyone happen to know:
1. How good the paintwork is i.e. hardwearing? Just had a nightmare with Specialized paint. My previous Cannondale CAADX (powder coated) had few scratches after a year, the Specialized seems to accumulate them for a pastime.
I'm on the hunt for a commuter bike/winter bike. My requirements are/were:
"Normal" road bike
No disc brakes (interesting tech, but early days!)
No cantis (a PITA to maintain IME)
Tigara as a minimum
Not bothered re. steel or aluminium
...all for £1000, or thereabouts.
Found a couple of bikes that tick all the boxes (Trek 1.5, Ridgeback Platinum, Giant Defy), but they left me cold...although the Ridgebacks look pleasingly sensible, so they're an outsider.
Would anyone out there like to sell me a 60cm Genesis Equilibrium? (I'm 6'4".) I have some parts I could use on a build, so would consider a F&F; but I guess it's a complete bike I'm after. Though the ideal would probably be: complete bike minus wheels.
I'm quite happy to look at the 00, 10 or 20; 2011s or 2012s.
