Genesis Tour de Fer Touring Bike

Genesis Tour de Fer Touring Bike 

DESCRIPTION

For starters we lengthened the chainstays (455mm) to allow for ample heel clearance with panniers. The stretched chainstays also give room to mount a handy kickstand plate behind the bottom bracket. We also beefed up the wall thickness of the downtube to improve overall rigidity and handling when fully laden. The BB was dropped 5mm (75mm) to improve stability and balance and we also increased the fork offset to 55mm (provides a medium trail measurement of 60mm) meaning the bike handles great with a front loads but isn’t too overly twitchy without.
