So after giving up on having Rourkes do some work on my Equilibrium 853, getting frustrated waiting for a dockers strike on the west coast of the U S to end, meaning I didn't get a Soma Wolverine, I opted for a 2014 Croix de fer frameset, for £399.99, only to be told they had all gone in my size. FFS!!!!
Recieved an email the day after that news, to be told I could have a 2015 model for the same price. It arrived today. I am very happy with my choice. I'm getting rid of the carbon fork, to scobes of this parish, and replacing it with a Surly Straggler fork.
So build list:
2015 Genesis Croix de fer frame
Surly Straggler fork
Mavic A719 to XT centrelock disc hubs
Sram Rival 50/34 cranks
Shimano 105 2x10 derailleurs
Shimano Dura Ace bar end shifters
Trp spyre disc brakes
Shimano Slx rotors
Salsa Cowbell 3 bars
Thomson 0° 90mm X4 stem
Lizard skins 3.2mm bartape
Sdg Bel Air saddle
Hope seat collar
Vittoria Randonneur pro 35mm tyres
It's off to have the steerer cut and headset fitted tomorrow. Build and photos to come over the weekend.
New bike to build up, kids and good lady out all Saturday, so tunes plenty of brews. Happy days.
