THE Genesis Vagabond -2020
The Genesis Vagabond was described by the late, great Steve Worland as “ the perfect cross-dresser for those long, steady rides that encompass a bit of everything.” The Vagabond is a combination of tourer, commuter or tough essential road bike. It is suitable for most disciplines at a price that competes against most entry level bikes. Now includes an upgraded bar end shifters to integrated brake/shift levers, it comes with a cleaner look and better ergonomics.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN I GIVE MY STEEL BIKE THE LOVE IT NEEDS?
All of Genesis frames are ED Black coated so are protected from rust. You may find a small bit of surface rust here and there sometimes, especially during winter when the salt on the roads is high. This can be removed with some emery cloth and the area can be covered with clear lacquer to protect the area from further contamination. Genesis also have a care guide from the masters at Reynolds, which covers how to care for your steel frame, including treatment of rust spots. Click here to download the care guide
CAN I GET REPLACEMENT DECALS FOR MY BIKE?
Genesis may be able to supply a digital file of the decal you need but you will need to prove you own the bike. Please email us at email@example.com with photos.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM TYRE SIZE FOR MY GENESIS?
Genesis have listed the maximum tyre size each frame can take at the bottom of the bike specification pages.
WHAT COMPONENTS WILL FIT ON MY FRAME?
With so many different variables this is an impossible question for us to answer properly! Please do head over to your local Genesis dealer to talk through price points, intended use and of course compatibility with the rest of your set-up.
