    Had a quick look and don’t think its been posted…

    Thought the 2015 Longitude might be of interest.

    Looks nice for the £999.99 8)

    Would look nicer in a better colour. But aye. Looks good.

    Was really nice in the flesh. I thought there was going to be more than 1 model but I think genesis had their eye on other things.

    1 1/8″ headtube?

    Flat ‘Army’ green wouldn’t be my first choice of colour, but it looks like a great bike for the money.

    Could be a real bargain if they offer a frame and forks package.

    Looks like it’s going to be available as a frameset (presumably with forks as the fortitude was), with at least one colour option (grey & blue it says in the comments on the page linked to above).

    1 1/8″ headtube is presumably because it (like the fortitude) uses a non suspension corrected steel fork, and the likelihood/possibility of running anything else is limited? There’s plenty of 29er frames to choose from that cater for bouncy forks anyway.

    I actually quite like the colour, goes with the adventure theme, much like the old singular hummingbird.

    Colour is ace for an adventure bike. I don’t want something that stands out 🙂

    Lots of nice things about it including 3″ tyre compatibility, slidey dropouts and the colour. The “no suspension” geometry puts me off. I’d always prefer the option.

    Just when I thought I had no need for another bike….

    Tell me about it, I hankered after a rigid 29er for ages, told myself it was an unnecessary extravagance, didn’t get one, then sold a bike and justified the build of a scandal (with rebas)(to myself at least), which is slowly creeping towards about a grand build cost (finished) but is only about 60% complete. Then, then I see this & it ruins everything.
