Anyone tried this or own one?

I'm after a single speed for commuting, occasional longer rides and the odd bridleway/tow path. It seems like an ideal choice, but I can't find much about it other than the sales crap.

Had a few steel Genesis' before (mtbs) and loved them.

Equally, if you fancy swapping yours (or something similar) for a hardcore hardtail mtb (18" on-one summer season, pikes etc), then let me know!!

    Don't know much about the Genesis, but the idea seems good.

    I'm using a Specialized Langster for 40 miles per day commuting (inc hilly 15/20% bits) and it's pretty much ideal.
    I am thinking about trying to find a Specialized singlecross as an even better (winter) commuter - I believe would be identical to the Langster, but with cantis and better clearances. From what I know, it would be pretty similar to the Genesis day 1 cross.
    Commute: Langster -Singlecross - Brompton S2-LX

    Road: 95 Trek 5500 -Look 695 Aerolight eTap - Boardman TTe eTap

    Offroad: Pace RC200 - Dawes Kickback 2 tandem - Tricross - Boardman CXR9.8 - Ridley x-fire

    I have a Specialized Single Cross that I'm thinking of shifting. Could be interested in a swap - have you got photos?

    Search for "FS - On-One 456 Summer Season 18". Complete bike" on the forums and you'll find the ad.

    Do you have pics and spec of the Tricross?
