When your imagination outweighs your common sense, you'll need to reach for the Longitude - Genesis' original go-anywhere, do anything mountain bike.
They've chosen to go with the 27.5+, fully rigid platform (conventional 29" compatible) that comes a whole host of benefits; same air volume as the 29+ setup but in a lighter (both rim, tyre and tube), faster accelerating, more maneuverable package that will fit a wider range of folks, especially at the smaller end of the size spectrum, without sacrificing geometry or standover.
The all-new Shimano Deore 2x10 drivetrain will take you, fully laden, to the furthest flung corners of the world, and the efficient, fast-rolling 2.8" WTB Trailblazers are tubeless-ready.
With no-stone-left-unturned, Genesis has even bundled the bike with a couple of free Parable's excellent Gorilla cages - allowing you to carry pretty much anything (1.5kg limit) that'll fit into their hugely adjustable cradle.
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.
Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
