Genesis have upped the ante with regards to their do it all road bike, the Equilibrium, regarded as one of the best in its class is now even more desirable thanks to its titanium frame.
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.
