Genesis Equilibrium Disc 2014 Road Bike


Genesis Equilibrium Disc 2014 Road Bike. A new and exciting category for Genesis, and with it, the arrival of a dedicated road-disc frame platform. Controversial as the concept might be for some, Genesis think road disc has a definite place, and brings with it some real tangible benefits for the masses. It is the ideal partner to their Equilibrium frame where the emphasis is a little less on ‘race’ and more on ‘ride’. With the increased braking power offered by disc brakes comes also a far greater degree of control. Less of the ‘on/off’ feeling sometimes associated with rim brakes, and ultimately less force at the lever needed for normal braking. Other benefits include zero rim wear (and therefore longer lasting wheels) and consistent braking performance regardless of the elements, wheel trueness or rim imperfections. They’ve plumped for Reynolds air-hardened 631 tubing for both the frame and lugged fork; providing them with the necessary strength and durability to withstand the increased braking forces, whilst enabling them to retain that classic skinny-tubed steel aesthetic. Proven Equilibrium geometry and practicality combines with a traditional steel frame and lugged fork combo and modern mechanical disc brakes to create what we believe is the next generation of road bike.


Reynolds 631: A development of Reynolds’ now-legendary 531 tubeset but approximately 10% stronger, 631 is cold-drawn from billet and air-hardens after welding, creating a frame that is both light (as it’s stronger, we can use less of it), incredibly strong and gives a lively, forgiving ride. Lugged Steel Fork: With road disc being a fairly recent addition there are still a very limited number of carbon fork offerings (particularly in non-tapered, 1-1/8" steerer versions). Rather than compromise with having to go with a carbon fork we weren’t 100% happy with we plumped for a steel fork that allowed us to retain the skinny tubed aesthetic of the Equilibrium, have it built to our own spec, and, most importantly, as proven with the recent Equilibrium 853 frameset – the steel fork rides superbly and provides the perfect compliment to the Equilibrium frame. Hayes CX Expert: The mechanical disc brake formerly known as the CX5 has been getting rave reviews from riders and press alike – and for good reason! The CX Expert brakes give a nice a nice positive braking feel thanks to the stiff, forged one-piece caliper and handily include an integrated barrel adjuster for cable adjustments. Nice Wheels Mister! The Shimano Deore M756 6-bolt hubs (yes, Shimano still make them) might be a bit of a blast from the past, but the bonus of them having been around for a while means we know they’re already proven and reliable, not to mention rider-serviceable. We’ve matched them to the trendy 23mm wide H Plus Son Archetype welded rims and laced everything together with double-butted stainless steel spokes.
