Genesis High Latitude 2x10 2013 Mountain Bike

Genesis is very much a rider's brand. Everyone who is involved with this brand rides bikes and they're an important part of their lifestyles. For Genesis people, cycling is about freedom and escape, it's about slowing down and noticing the world that's going on around you, and it's also about good times with friends and happy memories.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I've only had the bike delivered a couple of weeks ago. Having ridden a friends 29er over the Christmas period I was hooked. Up until then I didn't believe the hype about bigger wheels!
I opted for the hartail as it suits how and where I ride, I plumped for the Genesis due to the pedigree of their 26 inch hardtails. The bike doesn't disappoint. Straight out of the box the bike looks great with it's retro styling. The larger diameter wheels pick up speed quickly and gain momentum, they soak up the bumps well. The Continental tyres have been great in the recent muddy conditions. The SLX components have provided smooth shifting and the switch on the rear derailleur really does help limit the chain slapping over rough stuff. The bike isn't the lightest but overall I'm really happy with my purchase and I can't wait to get a few more miles under my belt!
