GENESIS Vagabond 2018
Vagabond is a 'monstercross' bike in the loosest sense of the term; the illegitimate lovechild of a road and mountain bike, a 'frankenbike' that has long been the staple of shed tinkerers, the result of many an experimental 'I wonder if?' spare parts box builds.
Once summed up nicely as "?the perfect cross-dresser for those long, steady rides that encompass a bit of everything." Tourer, commuter, ruffty tuffy road bike, the Vagabond will happily turn it's hand to most diciplines with as much as a simple tyre swap.
An escape route via the road-less-travelled or the near-perfect commuter with disc brakes and full length mudguard capabilities?
The CdA blurs the line between the more traditional CX features and a modern Sportive/endurance road geometry - a bonefide modern day Frankenbike with long, stable wheelbase, generous clearances and BB drop, large volume tyres, and an accessible, relaxed geometry. Combined with the cavernous tyre clearances, it helps to ensure that you're only ever a simple tyre swap away from knobbly tyred off-road action.
