I have a 2005 one in deep purple. Amazing frame, carbon rear triangle, superb ride if you like the Genesis geometry, I find it similar to the Rocky Mountain Vertex/Thin Airs I used to ride.

that'll be similar to my X-caliber. geometry in non standard but I like it,

it is of same era as my x-c so most likely will have mount for disc brake on the chain stay. means you are limited to a very rare avid or else you can fit front magura marta caliper like what I did - you need either to make braket like I did or buy A2Z one (like mine except I was not aware they exisited untili I made mine).

check my posts on here about the bracket.
