Genesis Tour De Fer 10 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 Tour De Fer is a serious touring bike for those with the mindset to pedal through counties and cross continents. With a reliable component list proven to be tour-worthy and happy to rack up super high mileage, it's about as fit for purpose as a touring bike can get.
The TDF 10 is the base model in the 2018 range, offering an all-round lighter duty package that still gives individuals with a strong sense of adventure and self enrichment the means to escape to wherever they please. Many great features can be found on the TDF 10 which remain throughout the range, including burly front and rear mudguards, a heavy duty rear pannier rack, multiple bottle cages and a wide range Shimano drivetrain / mechanical disc brake groupset.
The frameset is fabricated from Genesis' own seamless double butted Chromoly steel as opposed to Reynolds heat-treated 725, which helps the overall cost slightly without compromise on strength or durability.
So load up and get out there, see what's over those mountains. Consider returning some time in the near future... Maybe...
