Genesis Flyer 2012 Single Speed Bike

A Reynolds 520 Cro-Mo frame with slim-stays and a relatively stiff mainframe matched to a slim, triple-butted fork is a combination that gives a wonderful mix of smooth comfort and lightning responses, a modern track bike meets road classic kind of ride that's won praise from everyone that's ridden it.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Ordered on a Saturday from Australia and turned up the following Friday -excellent delivery service. Overall quality of finish of the bike is very good.
I bought this bike for commuting 18K each way daily and to encourage me to spin more. After 3 weeks I have to say I am really enjoying the ride, my commute time has reduced by 5 minutes it feels much easier and it is easy to spin up and sit in the low 30kps.
I am 176cm with 80-81cm inseam and bought a 56. The size is perfect, standover on the 56 is 80.6 cm at top of the TT slope at handlebars and I have an easy 2 cm clearance with shoes on. On the bike I am not stretched or crunched up. Sitting on the hoods is just right (back approx 45 degrees not over flat for commuting in traffic) and in the drops is fine to.
Would I recomment to anyone , yes I would, and hopefully I will continue to enjoy.
I swapped out tyres for gaterskins as the fitted continental race ultras have an online reputation for puncturing but are probably ok while new and fitted with SPD pedals. With 25cc tyres there does not look like space to fit mudguards, looks like <5mm with the rear being tighter than the front.
Hope this reviews helps .
