    Not heard or seen anything on the 2014 Croix de fer yet. I am however looking forward to the Fugio being released.

    Anyone know what it looks like yet? Is it worth waiting for over the 2013 model?

    I’ve been told it’s got better brakes, tyres, wheels. Any more info yet?

    This should help guys…

    – Upgraded Shimano Deore M525 hubs (vs. 2012 M475) – better sealed for longer life

    Is it just me, or does that look suspiciously like the answer to a question? Thorough, concise and without any mocking or arguments. I don’t like this place anymore, strange things are happening. I also preferred the CDF in white, but thats just me

    Sorry, must try harder. Was something I’d already prepared and a copy and paste job from that (and therefore had to be polite and to the point). Will do better next time!

    Croix de Fer………rubbish. I’ve got a (insert name of random cross bike here) that I bought from a German mail order company/with my semi-pro team discount/the US without informing HMRC/a Chineese bloke on ebay (delete as appropriate) and it only cost me (insert cost of Croix de Fer less 40%).

    There, is that a better STW answer.

    Great spec change IMO, makes the bike even more appealing! Although I also prefer it in white. Sounds like they’re finally admitting the CdF is actually a commuter/tourer rather than a CX bike, especially with that Fugio (which looks ace) just around the corner.

    I had a long chat with Albert of Genesis at the QECP demoday.. he was wearing wellies..

    he seemed pretty passionate about developing a range of niche bikes with nice features.

    Thanks folks. I actually plumped for a 2013 model from my lbs as they had it in stock and in my size. They are hard to come by at the moment.

    I’ve got some trips coming up that I don’t fancy being messed up by potential stock shortages come the new model.

    Alb = Albert perchance? 😉

    Edit – I like the older white, but I’m definitely coming around to the black too. Looks understated and classy.

    Inboard brakes could have swung it for next years btw.

    *pedant mode on*

    Can people please refer to the Croix de Fer as a ‘Croix de Fer’ rather than a ‘CdF’, as the CdF is a different model in the Genesis range (albeit a lower spec Croix de Fer)

    (From a CdF owner) 😀

    @Alb What’s the deal with the 2014 Day One Disc (what / when / how much and why)? Can’t get a 2013 one in 54cm for love nor money. It’s great that the CDFs are on special to clear the stock, but I wanted a single speed.

    New ones are comign Razor. Gloss olive green with the Hayes CX Expert brakes, Conti CX Speed tyres – same price as last year (£699).

    What size are you after? Might have a 2013 ex-demo that I can sell on.

    might be interested in the day one disk if still available.
    PM if so.

    If you have any ex-demos in the any of your CX with disc, CdF/Vapour, range in a 52″ I would be all ears….and hands*

    My CDF is a white one, possibly the best bike I have bought, done 3 odd years without anything going wrong on it, still on original parts.
