Genesis Flyer Single Speed 2018 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.
The single speed Genesis Flyer at first glance seems so frightfully simple, but it has been thoroughly considered in all aspects to give you the best experience out on the road, and it can be adapted and tweaked in several ways to make it just how you like it.
With a full Chromoly double-butted frame and Carbon bladed fork, you have a comfortable and forgiving chassis straight off the block. The balanced 42/17 gearing provides a good top speed as well as the ability to tackle considerable climbs. You also have the option to use a freewheel or fixed cog which are both provided. Reverse dropouts make rear wheel removal super easy, and the full length mudguards protect you from the elements and other grot from the tarmac.
The bigger than average 28c tyres allow for confident missions in the wet and add a little more cushion when faced with dire UK potholes, and the overall relaxed geometry and shallow drop bars mean a less aggressive seated position which will prove to be much more comfortable over distance.
Overall it's very low maintenance and leaves very little to potentially malfunction when away from home. A foolproof winter bike that isn't short on performance.
