The Genesis Borough Hybrid Bike is cut from the same cloth as the longstanding Croix de Fer, and using the same tried-and-tested frame and fork platform, the Borough is a robust workhorse of a bike designed to carry the rider and luggage from A to B in style, with speed, sophistication and comfort.
A dependable Shimano Claris 8sp drivetrain with slightly reduced gearing (via the 46/34T chainset) should prove to be the perfect usable range for load carrying urban errands and weâ€™ve included an integrated chainguard as a buffer between the chain and your clothing. The subtly swept riser bar places the hands at a more neutral and comfortable angle, and helps give a slightly shorter, more upright and relaxed overall rider position.
Shimanoâ€™s new M355 hydraulic disc brakes and fast rolling, puncture-resistant Conti Sport Contact tyres mean more riding, less fettling. The perfect blend of classic, understated looks combined with the modern, dependable and top-performing componentry that weâ€™ve all come to know and love. Style and substance.
