Testing the water a little bit with this … I put this together earlier this year and have enjoyed it in drop bar SS monster cross and SSCX mode, but think I want something more winter-road/CX bike based.
Genesis Fortitude for sale, either as full bike, or frame & fork.
Medium frame in green. Horizontal dropouts. Reynolds 725 steel frame. Rigid steel forks. New FSA headset fitted. Small dent on top tube (but it’s steel, shouldn’t affect frame integrity)
Currently set up as a single speed drop bar CX bike (42c tyres) have also run it as a monster-cross with 29×2.2 tyres (room to go bigger)
Would work equally well as a flat bar rigid 29er MTB, or as a bike-packing bike with gears and eg some Geoff bars.
XT chainset, currently just running the outer 36t chainring (also have the original 24t inner ring). New XT BB.
Fulcrum 700c QR wheels with Continental AT Ride 42c tyres.
TRP Spyre cable disc brakes. Shimano Tiagra STI levers.
New SKS 60 full mudguards, which just about fitted the 29×2.2 tyres, but I have since shortened the stays a little to bring them closer to the 42c tyres currently fitted.
Looking for around £450 for the full bike, or frame & forks for £220
Any questions, or more pics wanted, PM me with your email address and I’ll pop some over.
Ideally collection, but willing to meet within Yorkshire-ish, or deliver at cost.
