Genesis Croix De Fer 40 │Touring & Gravel

Built to go the distance - whether it be gravel, touring or, cyclocross.

A modern classic, the Croix de Fer keeps on turning and this interpretation is our most rounded model yet.

At its heart is the ever faithful Reynolds 725 tubing. Featured throughout, this is thin in comparison to regular chromoly, saving a little weight and enhancing the ride quality. Matched to our steel fork, this is a bike which gives a reassuring ride, even when loaded.

That theme continues with Shimano's GRX groupset providing a reliable shifting on and off road. We've gone for an RX-600 chainset featuring 46/30T chainrings, with shifters and hydraulic brake callipers to match.

Want to transform into a killer gravel bike? The ability to run up to a 45mm rear tyre and a 50mm front tyre on the provided 700c rims increase the all-terrain ability of the Croix - and it doesn't end there. If you want to experiment with 650B wheels, you could run up to a 44mm rear tyre and a 50mm front tyre.

Thru-axles front and rear, tubeless ready rims and tyres, flat mount disc brakes, a third bottle mount, rack and guard mounts and fixings for Anything Cages on the forks complete the package.

About Us

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.
