Evening. Is this a good deal ? a Genesis Latitude 00 2011 for £500 on bikes2udirect. Can anyone tell me does it have the same geometry as the Genesis Core 100 ? Can’t seem to find it on tinternet. Thanks.
I live very close to Greno Woods in Sheffield which is has a number of trails in it (although its not strictly a full on trail centre). Lots of roots, mud and a few rocks and its much faster than I am!!
Perfect for trails, XC – anything you would want to chuck a hard tail at.
The forks are fine. Yes, they’re ‘only’ coils but coils do have some advantages over air (especially cheaper air shocks). Small bump compliance and a linear response (basically means they compress the same amount across the travel – air shocks are progressive so firm up the more they compress) are two of them.
They are very robust but not the lightest. I have upgraded mine but its by now means a must (I just had the opportunity to for the price).
The steel frame rides really nice and is a solid base for future upgrades (wheels, brakes then forks in that order if you so desire in the future).
