Product Description


Genesis Equilibrium Decade '16

Ltd edition fully equipped Equilibrium w/ Reynolds 725 frame, carbon fork, mudguards,  Tubus rack and dynamo hub front light celebrates Genesis 10th birthday.

  • The Reynolds 725 butted CrMo steel frame is heat-treated to boost tensile strength.
  • This allows Genesis to specify thinner wall tubing which helps create a smoother, more comfortable without compromising the frame's strength or its acceleration potential.
  • The carbon fork matches the frame's comfort and lateral stiffness.
  • The Shutter Precision SV-8 dynamo hub is smooth, efficient and delivers free front lighting (no batteries to replace or charge) via its Cyo Premium 80 Lux headlamp from German bike lighting experts, Busch & Müller.
  • The Tubus Vega CrMo rear rack weighs just 375g yet it's capable of carrying 25kg loads.

'This Equilibrium is designed to travel a little further, a little longer but without the weight penalty associated with a dedicated tourer.

So, why a triple? Well, the biggest and most obvious advantage over a double is the expanded range. Look at it as having a standard chainset with whole additional set of gears for steep, sustained riding with light loads. With the increased gear range also comes a more even spread of gears for nice smooth transitions and uninterrupted cadence/rhythm.

Fully equipped with well-proven, highly regarded kit from the likes of Tubus, Shutter Precision and Busch & Müller, the Equilibrium Decade will appeal as much to long-distance Audax riders as it will folk looking for an efficient, comfortable and practical everyday bike.

A true rider's bike which reveals more of its well-balanced character the longer you stay in the saddle.'

Real world road bikeReview by Robster
Bought from local Edinburgh cycles branch when I saw the reduced price, the cost of the components alone must be close to the retail price. First road bike I've bought in seventeen years, and it's a revelation.
Lovely 725 frame which gives a really nice ride quality and looks superb. The spec is great for the money, maybe the wheels are a touch heavy but they seem very durable and I'm in no hurry to upgrade. The only things I have changed are the tyres, the stock Clement tyres very puncture prone on my commute, swapped for Schwalbe marathon plus, and put my old Brooks b17 saddle on too.
Feel like I've got a bargain here - Reynolds, Tubus racks, quality dynamo and lights with carbon forks and smooth shifting Tiagra transmission. (Posted on 12/11/2016)
Outstanding valueReview by Rodders
Having tweeked the saddle height on several short rides I managed to get the bike just how I wanted it. The steel frame really is as good as others have stated .. It evens out the roughness on the country lanes and makes your ride very pleasant ! This is definitely a keepers bike as it comes with mudguards and dynamo front light which works really well.. A must for my winter rides ..
Unbelievable price through Edinburgh Cycles ... Well done you guys... (Posted on 23/10/2016)
This bike is a BargainReview by CampbellC
At the current price this bike is a bargain it’s lively and enjoyable to cycle and with a bit of tweaking you end up with a very nice bike. I recently purchased one to replace a cheap and rather stodgy tourer that I have been using on my commute over the past 6 years.
The Equilibriums quality 725 frame is well finished and has some nice kit attached like the Tiagra groupset, Tubus rack and the Busch & Muller Cyo Premium 80 Lux headlamp, driven by the Shutter Precision SV-8 dynamo hub.
The rims and mudguards are not the highest quality but are ok. I’ve upgraded the tyres to a 28mm touring tyre although choice of tyre here is very important as there is not much clearance and this is my only criticism. I think more generous clearance for a range of 28mm tyres would make the bike even more versatile.
Otherwise this is a really enjoyable bike to cycle and I would happily recommend it for commuting/light touring. At this price 5/5.

Would this make a good touring bike? And match its cousin tour de fer 20 ? I am looking for a touring bike and this looks like it could do the job but would it?
