The bikes we sell vary but each will have more than a few things in common: They will be versatile, durable, functional and be fun to ride – reminding you of the childlike joys that can be had while cycling.
Official Genesis bicycles stockist
This is one of the reasons we stock Genesis because, in their own words, they “bring to life the sorts of bikes we enjoy riding… Most of our bikes will have ‘built-in’ practicalities that will enable you to use them daily across many different scenarios.”
We predominantly stock their gravel bikes due to their increased versatility. They are the perfect ‘all-rounders’ being comfortable in almost any situation. They can go fast on roads with 700cm wheels and dropped bars for an aerodynamic position. They are also perfect for long trips and touring with a slightly more upright frame geometry than a road bike while retaining handlebars that allow multiple hand positions. They can equally head off-road, along bumpy tracks with large tyre clearance for comfort and disc-brakes that mean slight buckles in the wheels aren’t an issue.
With Bordeaux’s notorious cobbled streets as well as its long straight road stretches a gravel bike also makes the ideal around town bike. What’s more, surrounding Bordeaux are so many forests and vineyards criss crossed with fire tracks and cycle paths of varying surface quality which can all be explored on a gravel bike. Its this sort of bike that allows you to discover and fully appreciate the beautiful countryside that the south-west of France has to offer. Most gravel frames also come with eyelets for attaching panniers, which is why they are sometimes known as adventure bikes because if one day you want to go a little further afield you’ll be able to just load-up and go!
The most important thing though is that gravel bikes are adaptable meaning they can be tailored to suit each rider’s individual needs. We are more than happy to do custom builds for you, just tell us your measurements, budget and what sort of cycling you’ll be doing we will do the rest.
