2020 Genesis Vagabond

Originally designed as an extreme drop-barred adventure/off-road touring bike, the Genesis 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.

The late, great Steve Worland summed them up nicely as “…the perfect cross-dresser for those long, steady rides that encompass a bit of everything.”

Tourer, adventurer, super-tough pot-hole beating commuter or road bike, the Vagabond will happily turn it’s hand to most disciplines with as much as a simple tyre swap.  With a huge gear range and massive clearance for tyres that can handle road, gravel or mud  with ease, ‘the only limit when you’re riding the Vagabond is your imagination’.

The Vagabond is incredibly versatile – not just in the range of terrain it can handle, but in how it can be built up and equipped with mudguards, racks, bike-packing bags etc.

Available as a complete bike or a beautiful yellow frameset, you have the choice of a go-anywhere off the peg bike or the basis of your individual dream build.

There’s good reason why this type of bike is often only the result of custom builds – compatibility. Namely compatibility woes between road and MTB parts. With this in mind Genesis designed the Vagabond frameset to be as accommodating as possible in handling a mix of road and MTB components. They knew that some people would take one look at the frame and want to build it up with a more road-focused (albeit larger tyred) spec in mind, while others would see knobbly tyres, mud and off-road adventure.

MJÖLNIR:

AKA ‘Thor’s Hammer’ and pronounced ‘Myol-n(ee)r‘.  Genesis’s double-butted, cold-drawn, seamless, Taiwanese Chromoly frame tubeset also goes by the aliases of 4130, Cr-Mo and Chromo.  Ultra-reliable tubing that performs well in a variety of applications, and which can be built into framesets at a lower cost than with the lighter and stiffer Reynolds 725.  The starting point for many a super tough steel frame – ideal for applications where low weight or maximum responsiveness are not quite as important as reliability.
