The Genesis Croix de Fer is a versatile bike that can be used by cyclocross racers and other terrain rides. It has a Reynolds 725 heat-treated Cr-Mo frame and Cr-Mo forks with disc brakes. The Croix De Fer can be used with 28c road slicks and guards. You can also customize it to fit 35c’cross tires.
The frame itself is light and springy to make rough rides go smoothly. The Reynolds 725 Cr-Mo frame also comes in sizes of 52, 54, 56, 58, and 60 cm. A down tube gusset solidifies the area of the frame where it gets most stressed. This would be a good place to mount the gear cable guides as well. The seat stays are designed to a minimum and a slighty higher head tube.
The Croix de Fer has Shimano Tiagra components and Shimano BR-R505 disc brakes. It has ventilated microfiber grips and stainless spokes with a black finish. Available online from dealers in UK, it has a tag price of £999.99.
