If I had to be critical at all (and no reason why I do I suppose) I'd say that those XT cranks look a bit out of proportion to the tubes on the frame. However, ignore that - first impression of the built bike was, 'wow that is gorgeous', so sticking with that view. Spot on. :)

I know what you mean but this was definately a bitsa project, what was hanging around or what was the right price. The cranks should be more elegant and black

Highly recommend the 725 Genesis frame

Looks sweet. Do you know if they do a proper version of the frame, for gears?

Looks like frame only options are 29ers
