    That looks brilliant! Definately the nicest bike ive seen on here in a while. It shows that the carbon everything, £5k builds dont always look the best. Theres a lot to be said for a simple, traditional, steel hardtail without all the curvy lines and hydroforming of most bikes.

    Definitely true.Hardtails ,especially in steel always look more "pure" to me.

    I`ve always liked Genesis bikes.I thought my Anthem for £770 was a good but that was a stonking deal you got there.

    Just don`t go and spend all the money you saved on upgrades.............................. :wink:
