This is my Genesis Flyer single speed bike. The frame is around 56cm in size. The bike is very rare and is number 93 out of only 100 made and cost over £800 when new. It is in good condition but for some scuffs on the frame and forks due to city life that can be seen from the pictures provided. It was only used for short runs for about 6 months so all parts are in good working order. I am selling due to living to far now to commute to Central London. The Genesis Flyer is a great bike made better by the fact the Limited Edition model comes with some upgraded components and paint scheme.
Please see a review and Components list below........
This bike is to be paid for no later then 2 days after the end of the Auction by Paypal, and is to be picked up no later then 8 days after the Auction has ended. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, Happy Bidding.....,

‘The new look, limited Flyer is every inch the achingly cool street machine.’ Bicycle Buyer magazine.
Limited to just 100 individually numbered units, this limited edition version of the Genesis Flyer stands out for its frame graphics, created by London design company AllCity Creative.
AllCity Creative also spec'd riser bars rather than the standard Genesis Flyer's drops. Otherwise, it's the same steel singlespeed fixie that got this great write up from bikeradar.com.
‘The double-butted tubing, slim tapered stays and fork also take a generous amount of sting out of potholes and pitted tarmac. This gives it the much-coveted ‘spring and float’ that steel enthusiasts prize so highly compared to alloy framed bikes. This slight give and take sticks the already good tyres to the road surface far better than a similarly priced, but stiffer alloy bike.’
Continental UltraGatorskin 700x25 tyres help make this bike a real city flyer.
That's why you'll bless its Shimano 105 brakes.
