Sounds like it's not too stiff? I like a lot of flex in my frames. Genius still seems really innovative, but I assumed it would still be stiff.

Do you still have this bike? I'm thinking of buying a similar frame. How does it ride? I'm worried it will be too stiff for my tastes. Do you have any geometry info?

Beautiful bike. I like how you...

Thanks KRS!

That's great to know because I just found out today that I find Tiagra hydraulic levers to be extremely ugly. Dealbreaker for me XD

Thanks for the reply Blue.

I've found some chains can be forgiving. I ran a KMC 9 and Campagnolo 9 on a Shimano 8, the former giving the slightest degradation, maybe one balky shift/ride the...
