The cornerstone of our range, the Croix de Fer is the definition of Genesis past and present. A bike that really can do it all, our latest range
What’s it like to ride the latest Genesis Croix de Fer 50 – our range-topping, Reynolds 853 model? Right now, the
At Genesis we have a history of doing things our own way, whether that’s making bikes we want to ride, or heading in a d
In part two of our interview with Vin Cox, 10-years on from his record-breaking round the world ride, we continue our conversation, starting with his elongated return to normal life and ending with a chat about bikes. What else?! Miss part one of our interview with Vin Cox? Check it out here.
Wearing a t-shirt from the Trans Iowa, Vin Cox answers our video call. Ten years after setting a new world record for circumnavigation of the globe by bike, it seemed fitting to talk to one of Britain’s pioneering cyclists. Vin has a made a hugely varied contribution through the decades, from racing at the downhill mountain bike world championships in the early 1990s, to taking away pen and paper points calculations for the Notts and Derby Cyclo-Cross League when he devised a
Those are two of the most popular questions we get asked – so we thought we would give a rundown of the most popular tyre sizes and types, along with their strengths and weaknesses. Whichever tyre size suits your riding best we’ve got a bike to fit the bill, from road, to touring, gravel and everywhere in-between.

Whether you’re a first timer, or just getting back into the groove after a period of time away from your usual workplace, there has never been a better time to travel by bike.

Some would do it virtually, but for one very special Genesis fan (or nutter), that wasn't enough. Russ Kingston is currently living in Spain where, unlike the UK, cycling on the public highway has been forbidden. Bored of Zwift and with nothing to do in the evenings, this Genesis Zero Disc owner figured out that if he rode up and down his driveway enough times, he could amass some elevation. Granted, it wasn't any old driveway. Measuring 137-metres and with an average grade of 13% this was more of a private road - nonetheless, 230 reps later Russ had completed his challenge - equal
