Genesis Grapil 2013 Mountain Bike Frame. In a brand famous for its steel hardtails, bringing a suspension bike to the table is a bold move. The team at Genesis like riding hardtails but there is definitely a place for full suspension bikes in mountain biking. When facing a rocky, loose Lakeland climb or a peak district boulder strewn descent then having a full suspension frame certainly helps. However they don’t want to overcomplicate our lives with a bike that has every new technology under the sun or the latest trendy suspension design, but what they do want is sorted geometry, good reliability, durability and suspension that works well and predictably in every situation. After 2 years of playing with linkage designs and travel set ups Genesis have settled on a 120mm link actuated single pivot with a low leverage ratio that is designed to run with a 140mm suspension fork. You can even use a longer stroked rear shock to increase the rear travel to 135mm without effecting the geometry, but they think the 120mm rear/140mm front works fantastically well. Genesis used as many round tubes as possible to give a lovely clean aesthetic and shouldn’t bikes look like bikes? Genesis think so.
The Grapil frame only is Anodized Black for extra durability and is supplied with a Maxle Lite 142×12mm axle, seat clamp, bolt in cable guides and a Rockshox Monarch High Volume RT3 rear shock custom tuned for the frame.
