I have decided to sell the frame and e13 chain device from my 2013 17.5" Genesis Fortitude Race. I bought the full bike from a nice chap last Saturday on the strength of the superb reviews and have ridden it once, unfortunately, although I absolutely love it, I think the 19" would suit me better and have just ordered one! Here's what Genesis say about this great bike....

The chap I purchased it from had bought it for an event and had only ridden it 50 miles so as you can imagine, the frame is like new. The RRP on these frames is £419.99 (frame only) but Real Cycles have them on offer at £373.77 (plus £13.99 p&p) at the moment. I am only selling to fund the purchase of a 19" version of the same frame!

You can run any 445mm rigid fork (normal axle to crown for sus corrected 26" fork) on these, The Genesis one is around £70 new. You could easily pick up a used one if you weren't bothered about having the Genesis one, or you could choose an aftermarket fork such as an Exotic Alu:

Or a Salsa Cromoto:

I'm asking only £275 inc. UK post for the frame, FSA headset and e13 chain device.

SOLD

I've got a 19" and I think a 17,5" would suit me better :?

Damn. Wish I'd advertised it before I'd bought the 19". It arrived this morning!

Thanks mate, how tall are you out of interest? Are you going to sell the whole bike, or just the frame?

2 - Effective Top Tube 595mm 610mm
3 - Head Tube 105mm 110mm
4 - Head Angle 69.5° 69.5°
5 - Seat Angle 74° 74°
6 - Chain Stay 435mm 435mm
7 - BB Drop 65mm 65mm
Stem Length 70mm 80mm
Fork Length 445mm 445mm

Any Interest in this before I put it on eBay? I rebuilt the bike with the larger frame last night so this is not ready to go and can be packaged into the Genesis box the larger one came in and sent straight out!
