Amazing bike. I'm just not doing enough road riding to justify keeping it.
Was built in Jan 2019, first ride in Feb 2019 as I waited for a dry day. Frameset, etap groupset, wheels, chainring, all new at the time. The powermeter, handlebars, tyres, stem and seatpost were all a little older but all in tip top condition.
Frame is a 2019 Genesis Volare 931 stainless steel disc in size small (53.6cm effective top tube). Fork is the stock Genesis full carbon disc tapered fork supplied with the frame. Both are bolt through, flat mount.
Groupset is Sram Red HRD etap 11 speed. I have all the original boxes and chargers, leads, disc spacers etc. Think the cassette is 11-32. Rotors are 140mm. Chainset is 170mm quarq d-zero hidden bolt powermeter with Absolute Black 52/36 rings. Pedals are ultegra carbon. Bottom bracket is a Hope pressfit jobbie.
Wheels: Hope 20Five disc wheels with orange centre lock hubs. Tyres are 25c Conti GP4000S clinchers. Running tubes at the mo, but wheels are tubeless ready.
Handlebars: Easton EC90 carbon compact drop, 40cm width. Stem: Syntace F109 100mm 31.8mm clamp, ti bolts. Decals removed. Seatpost: not the hope one in the images, I'll replace this with a black Thomson layback (27.2mm). Saddle: I'm sure any buyer will have their own saddle preference so I'd like to keep the saddle currently on the bike, so no saddle included.
The ride is excellent as you would expect from such a high end bike. I'm 5'9" with slightly longer leg/shorter body proportions and it fits me like a glove.
Due to a massive preference for mtb and cx since I built it, it's only covered 800 miles.
Looking for £2750. Based in Kent. PM me for more info or if you have questions. Cheers.
That is so so fit. GLWS brother!!
Ha, thanks both. Yeah it's purdy arwight.
Let's try £2600 with the Thomson post (no saddle). Having removed the Thomson post from another bike it's quite well marked, although structurally sound. Will likely deliver in person for the price dependent on your location.
Market is tough on here atm it seems...
It's a high end bike and a sub optimal time of year to be selling what's likely to be most people's best (fair weather) bike, as indeed it was mine. I think it's most likely that I'll have to split it, but it's such a sweet ride I'm happy to let it linger for a bit as a complete bike before splitting.
Lovely bike. Would buy if I had room for a #1 Sunday best bike.
Might be keen on frame if you get to splitsville.
Almost half tempted to sell my tcr for this 🤔
I've heard sending a frame to Australia is a PITA though 😉
I'm not as persuasive as Mrs Doyle, but, ah go on 😊
Keen on groupset if you do end up splitting....
Looks like I'm splitting this beaut.
The etap shifters, mechs, brakes, chargers etc are sold.
The frameset is provisionally sold. Someone has first dibs on it, just waiting to hear back. If it's available again I'll update here.
I'll probably keep the wheels, unless someone really wants them and I'm definitely keeping the seat post and saddle.
So what's left? Not much! :) But here goes:
Quarq Dzero GXP pwoermeter chainset. 110bcd (alu not carbon) 170mm and Absolute Black 52/36 premium chainrings. £420 delivered.
The press fit BB will probably go with the frameset, but I have another GXP English thread BB (Chris King) that I'll let go for £50 with the Quarq or £60 posted separately. See here for info on it:
Stem is a Syntace F109 100mm, 31.8mm clamp. Ti bolts. My fave stem by miles. £30 posted.
Bars: Easton EC90 31.8mm clamp compact drop 40cm width. Light AF £65 posted, but happy to keep these as spares as they're all kinds of awesome.
Any questions, please ask. Ta.
I'd be up for the absolute rings
OK thanks, I'll PM you about splitting the rings from the Quarq then.
Frameset is available. First dibser isn't quite ready so it's up for sale.
Looking for £1150 for it and if you're vaguely SE based I'll deliver it in person for that. And will include the nearly new Hope press fit BB. So frame, fork, headset and BB.
Any questions, just ask. Thanks.
Quarq powermeter possibly for sale without the chainrings. £365 posted.
Just sent PM about the bars!
EC90 bars sold.
PM about quarq+bb
Absolute Black chainrings sold and now with their new handler. So quarq only available without chainrings. £355 posted now. Although Jens has first dibs. Thanks.
Quarq sold and on its way to it's new owner. So only the frameset and stem to go.
As its dismantled now I'll get some better pics of the frameset tomorrow in the daylight.
Dibs stem please. Will PM.
Stem sold. And then there was one (the frameset).
Busy weekend so didn't get to the frame until low light today, but I grabbed a couple of pics.
Price drop to £1100 delivered (includes the Hope BB which was most of £100 I think). Depending where you are I'll either drive it over to you for that or can post if you're further afield.
When it's stripped it's even more apparent as to how high quality the frameset is. It'll be missed.
