Genesis Tour De Fer 20 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 20 is the middle bike in the 2018 range, offering many of the same great features as the TDF 30 such as the Reynolds 725 heat-treated Chromoly frame, Chromoly fork, heavy duty racks and mudguards, dynamo-powered front and rear lights and multiple bottle cages, but using a 3x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain and Promax mechanical disc brakes which are of excellent quality. Additionally the TDF 20 uses a flat bar with ergonomic grips and trigger shifters, as opposed to a traditional drop bar with paddles.
Pack it right and you can travel indefinitely. Take that sabbatical or just quit and bail, a new quality of life awaits.
