Genesis ambassador Mary Moncorgé has got a new bike - and it has made us come over all peculiar. 

Yes, it's titanium and that ticks a very important box when it comes to building a lust-worthy forever bike. 

The Croix de Fer is also the prefect choice when it comes to adaptability. We've seen Adam Blythe stick 80mm deep-section road wheels on his - and while Mary goes for a more capable build, it only highlights that this is a bike that can be almost anything you want it to be. 

Our thanks go out to Matt Wragg for these glorious photos and bringing this bike into our lives.
