Hi. I've decided to sell my Genesis Latitude. Got a few things going on and need the cash and the extra space. It's a 2015 model in 19", made from Mjolnir cro-mo. I bought it as a frame, and slowly put it together as and when funds allowed.

Spec is as follows: both mechs, chainset, shifters and brakes are Shimano SLX. Fork is an Evolution series Fox with 32mm stanchions. 110mm travel(I think) with CTD adjustable lockout dial. Wheels, tyres, bars, stem, grips and seatpost are all Bontrager.

The wheels are Bontrager Duster Elite TLR 27.5 and tyres are team issue XR3, 2.35 front and 2.2 rear. I actually swapped a Trek 9200 with Trek UKs tech guru Colin Knell for these wheels. Dusters usually have thru axles front and rear, so he rebuilt the rear wheel with a Rhythm hub. Sounds like a Hope. He also fitted the tubeless tyres, and basically did a fantastic job. I just slotted them in

I've only ridden the Latitude about 4 or 5 times, and only twice in any kind of anger. I don't really get on with it, to be honest. I'm more into retro MTBs, and modern road bikes, which is another reason for the sale. I'm looking for £550 for it, but would be open to sensible offers.

Any questions just ask. Fairly sure I've probably forgotten something....

Regards
