Genesis Longitude - 2018 - Size Large
This has been an awesome touring / gravel / cross country / bikepacking bike. Will be sad to see it go but needs must!
I've owned it since new for a year and have done all sorts on it. Toured, commuted, ridden cross country loops etc. It handles singletrack well and rides really well loaded up. I've had panniers on the back and bikepacking bags. All the mount points you could possiblyt want.
The bike is as original spec. Bottom bracket and brake pads were replaced 100 miles ago.
The bike will be sold with two wheelsets. The orginal 27.5 wheels with 2.8 tyres have never been ridden. See the details in the list of components below. Currently set up with tubes but rims and tyres are tubeless ready. The 29er wheelset was handbuilt for the bike and is made up of 32 hole Mavic Xm319 rims to Shimano Deore XT hubs. They are taped up and have been run tubeless but are currently set up with tube and brand new Specialized tyres: Ground Control (2.3) on the front and Fast Track (2.1) on the rear. They were tweaked by the original builder a month ago.
The saddle is not included in the sale I'm afraid; I know it's a stunner. I've put a brand new set of Specialized pedals on. I have a set of Shimano SPDs I'd be happy to swap these for if you'd prefer.
Two gorilla cages for the forks will be included.
I'm careful with my bikes and it's in great condition. Some small paint damage here and there and a bit of cable rub as expected. I'll be including the top up paint pot Genesis sent with the bike. I haven't felt the need to use it but it's there for you!

More than welcome to come and have a look and test ride. Any questions, drop me a line!
Pick up in Bristol is prefered but I could post or meet up. You'd have to bear with me on this one as work doesn't let me get to the post office easily.
