I owned a near identical build to this a couple of years ago. It was a great bike but I felt it was let down by the SLX disc brakes, hence going for the Hopes on this one. Also, some lower rolling resistance tyres were in order.

Great :)

I was always happy with my old one, so knew this frame and fork combo was fine. As I mentioned I wasn't satisfied with the SLX brakes so went back to Hope. Not fussed with 10sp, it would make sense if it were a 2 x 10 setup but I went for it as I got a great deal on the groupset.

Nice build. Looks well balanced. I've always liked Genesis's approach.

Figured I'd give 1 x 10 a go as the 11-36 cassette option seemed to offer a ratio for all occasions. XT cassette and chain is mated to an E-Thirteen 34t G-Ring, I also took the opportunity to upgrade the plasticky SLX shifter to XT and fit a matching GS rear mech (SLX is only offered in SGS). Chain retention is courtesy of a Race Face bash ring and a Jump Stop.
