Track cycling and success is now synonymous with British Cycling following the impressive medal hauls and domination at both International and Olympic level in recent years. With renewed interest in track cycling, the Genesis Madison Track 2014 Track Bike is designed to tempt the budding Sir Chris of any age to head down to their local velodrome and take to the boards. Sharing its name with the team track event, The Madison is an entry-level track bike built around an oversized, unyielding 6061 double-butted Aluminium frameset and aero-bladed fork that provides maximum power transfer and efficiency, no matter how much wattage you throw at it. The supplied 50/15T gearing (87.6 GI) provides an ideal entry-level race gear and a good starting place with affordable scope to swap-in different size rear sprockets as and when needed further down the line. And, for the champions of tomorrow, we've got a 650c 47cm version, with a lowered 46/15T gearing (5.9m/74.6 GI) that makes it eligible for British Cycling U16/U14/U12 race regulations and a Quick-Release seatclamp for quick and easy track-side adjustments.
Shimano Square Taper BB: One of the 'unseen' areas where many manufacturers will frustratingly cut corners. We spec a Shimano BB-UN54 square taper bottom bracket for their unbeatable durability and legendary lifespan. Compact Handlebars: Traditional track bars tend to be very deep resulting in a very low, aggressive position which is unsustainable for many. We've specced compact road handlebars to enable the rider to comfortably spend a longer time on the drops. 50x15T Gearing: Provides an ideal entry-level race gear and a good starting place with affordable scope to swap-in different size rear sprockets as and when needed further down the line for different tracks or fitness levels.
