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.
What do you think?
The summer is coming and Sprockets Cycles is getting busier. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to ride after work without feeling exhausted and without lights on. It’s also been a while since the other half has let me out to play after work, I love yoga classes, an hour and a half to get as much riding in as possible!
As much as I love riding at night with lights, nothing beats a “sunset session” light is fading, air is cool, trails are empty…………
The last couple of weeks have been awesome in terms of weather, sunshine all day long, cool clear nights, the trails have been completely dried out. this week though the rain has re-appeared, the trails are even better, bit more grip and wee bit of uncertainty in the corners, slidy slidy……….
Anyhow, I headed over to the other side of the local hill, haven’t ridden this trail in ages, someone excavated the tree that was blocking the end too, good times. Sessioned this for a while then headed back to the reservoir, one wee blast down the resi track and headed home. Just in time to meet the other half after her class, Cup of tea and a biscuit, night.

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.
