Genesis Tour De Fer Touring/Gravel Bike 52cm

Excellent condition touring or (maybe) gravel bike – has 37c tyres on with mudguards, there’s more clearance available too on the front and maybe a little on the rear without the guards..

Has braze ons galore – 3 bottle cage mounts, one of which is a triple mount, spoke holder, rack and guard mounts, low rider mounts, kick stand mount etc.

Really nice to ride round town or around the world – not that I did that as I bought this new and haven’t ridden it much. Made lots of upgrades anyway though!

All the threads have been chased and engineering grade stainless bolts fitted so they never rust – I do this on all my bikes.

There’s a few small marks here and there but nothing obvious that jumps out, no dents or bends anywhere. I haven’t used this bike heavily loaded.

Dimemsions: 520mm seat tube centre to top, seat angle 74 degrees, head tube 130mm, head angle 71 degrees, BB drop 75mm, chainstay 455mm, offset 55mm, trail 61mm, wheelbase 1045mm, standover 786mm, stack 557mm, reach 372mm. Roughly equivalent to a 2020 model in Small size.

There are several upgrades to the standard spec and these include:

Hope XC Stem

Easton EA50 bars – only just purchased new (NOS) recently

Paul Components Shifter perches with Dura Ace 9sp shifters – the Paul Component shifter perches are £100 on their own! Make the most reliable thumbshifters you can buy.

Specialized bar ends

Vitoria Voyager Hyper 700c x 37c Kevlar tyres – £80 a pair, very light and grippy but very tough, not had any punctures.

Shimano Deore Trekking hydraulic disc brakes

I have also fitted some BRAND NEW parts from the new bike I bought to replace this (2021 Marin 4 Corners), this includes, new wheels (never ridden), new brake discs, new saddle,  new cassette.

The current year for this model costs £1100 and the spec isn’t as good as this one (see here for the current year spec (not mine): https://www.genesisbikes.co.uk/genesis-tour-de-fer-10-fb-vargn21400). No pedals included but if you need some cheap flat pedals to get you riding I can include them for no extra cost.

NO POSTAGE AVAILABLE but I can possibly meet you somewhere, maybe half way, if you coming from a distance to pick it up to reduce your journey time. I am in West Yorkshire.
