  • In an attempt to save @spotter 's CP thread from all the spam of everyone else's bikes, I figured I'd start this thread.

    I just picked this one up from the LBS on cycle2work, and I'm just out to get it muddy now. It's currently entirely otp, but will eventually get some changes to make it a little bit more of a tourer.

  • Some inspiration from the past few pages of @spotter 's thread:




    @spotter again

  • @skinny had an awesome one:

  • I'll do a quick readers wives spam

  • Miss that one. We went some cool.places.

    Someone on here bought it from me, maybe still here?

  • The one I owned.

  • My stainless CDF on the Crow Road.

  • Picked a 2015 10 on ctw. Going to use it for the lejog, great bike, and some great bikes above. Making me think about how I can upgrade the bike.

  • I need this in my life. Different direction to the Brooks/silver finishing kit route but works so well.

  • Hup hup! Here's my 2014 model in its speedy-ish weekend-tourer mode.

    Some lighter wheels, scratched up 5700 STIs, and a nice new Tiagra Compact. And yes, current accidental maverick one mudguard set-up.

  • I bought a 2015 CDF second hand and It didn't come with the threaded barrel adjusters, anyone know where I could get suitable ones?

  • Any Genesis stockist, they are available as spares.

  • Silly question, but can you remove the decals from the 931 frame, or are they under any lacquer?

  • This is a club I want to join. Anyone know somewhere that does test rides? I'm in Hackney so east/central is ideal.

  • Here's mine with either 700x38mm or 650Bx42mm set ups:

  • Hells teeth! You went mad with the fluro, but it works for me. Nice.

  • Love the swept bars cockpit. What stem, VO tall stack?

  • No its Genetic, same as the VO one, but cheaper becuase its not branded.

  • Here's what mine currently looks like:

  • Nice. I'm building something pretty similar. What mudguards are those please?

  • too short

  • I'm not sure that they are, but the attachment looks a bit like the PDW attachment to me.

  • I still think the original white Croix was the best looking one, sadly I was too late.
