The CDF by Genesis is the baby brother of the Croix De Fer Cross bike, slightly lower spec of components, and a lower grade steel for the frame it comes in quite a chunk cheaper than the Croix De Fer.
This sat for most of the summer unnoticed by most of our customers, despite its bright blue colourway it was overlooked for the original Croix De Fer. When customers started noticing it they realised that it wasnt such a huge difference in terms of spec and feel so it started getting a lot of interest.
Once sold the CDF was equipped with full fit mudguards, indicating unfortunately the END of the summer! What we did notice though is that once we had fitted the bike with the mudguards and sat it back in its place awaiting the pick up, it got so much more interest, the bike looks 100% better with the mudguards, and looks like a proper winter training/hack bike.
with slightly more travel (160mm) than the Bandit, this is a harder hitting full suss option from Transition, capable and burly enough to be ridden in the Megavalanche but still relatively light and nimble to take on most UK trail centres.
This is the Covert 2 build option, slightly more wallet friendly than option 1 and comes in at £3209.99. This build comes with the lovely new RP23 Boost Valve with Kashima coating, giving it 160mm of unbelievably plush rear wheel travel. Up front we have a Rock Shox Lyrik RC 2P fork, dual position travel for grinding uphill and ragging it back down again. Full specification can be found at Sprockets Cycles.
We have a medium in stock but can get all sizes and colour options within a couple of days.
