Genesis Vagabond 29er 2019 Bike
Genesis is a UK bike brand specialising in no-nonsense road, touring, urban and mountain bikes for adults and children. Ranging from great value models upto competition-ready racers and with the dire UK weather in mind, they are generally suited to mixed weather conditions and offer comfortable geometries.
We're not sure how to categorise the Genesis Vagabond. Blurring the lines between road, XC, cyclocross and open adventure, its capabilities are limited only by one's imagination and the surrounding terrain.
With a fully rigid Chromoly steel chassis, 29-inch XC wheelset, flared drop bars and a low standover, it's got formidable ground coverage and bump control, ample body clearance with the saddle dropped, excellent cornering control especially with luggage, and the freedom to switch hand position for prolonged comfort on those gnarly slogs.
The wide range 2x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain and TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes offer great all-round performance and prove to be super reliable and low maintenance when out in the sticks.
So if you want to blast some singletrack over the weekend but have a full week's commute starting the day after, a simple tyre swap (or wheel swap if you've got 'em) will have the Vagabond optimised for any mission.
