Amazing bike, but I'm just not doing enough road riding to justify keeping it. Was bought new and built in Jan 2019, first ride in Feb 2019 as I waited for a dry day. I love a steel frame and this has all the best ride qualities of steel, but with performance to rival a modern carbon frameset.
Just not as fragile as carbon, and in my opinion way classier. It's a 2018 Genesis Volare 931 stainless steel disc (identical to the 2019 model and the same as the 2020 model except for they changed the decals slightly). It's size small (53.6cm effective top tube, so more like a medium for other manufacturers).
Fork is the stock Genesis, and very nice, full carbon disc tapered fork supplied with the frame. Both frame and fork are for bolt through wheels and flat mount discs, so all the latest standards. Bottom bracket is a Hope pressfit jobbie. I used GXP cranks so any GXP cranks can be slotted straight in, but I think it can be adapted for use with a Shimano Hollowtech II chainset too. I'm not 100% sure on this so best check with Hope or your local bike shop if this is important to you.It takes a 27.2mm seatpost. The ride is excellent as you would expect from such a high end bike made with Reynolds stainless tubing. I'm 5'9 with slightly longer leg/shorter body proportions than is normal for my height and it fits me like a glove. Due to a massive preference for mtb and cx since I built it, it's only covered 800 miles. It is a used frameset, but it's in lovely condition and the finish on the whole frameset is stunning.
The stainless steel tubing is beautiful and the welding is first class. I ran SRAM etap on it but have all the barrel adjusters and adapters etc supplied with the frameset if you want to run gear cables or Di2. Obviously only those items mentioned are included in the sale. Complete bike pics are for illustration only.
Pics with just the wheels were taken today and again, the wheels, are not included in the sale. Let me know if you have questions. Price includes insured courier to UK address.
