Genesis Smithfield [+/-] $900 – Short Review

Last updated:
Cheap steel touring bike

The Genesis Smithfield 2017 urban commuter has a classic steel look, split top tube and internal Shimano Nexus/Alfine gearing, the lines are clean, but purposeful. Designed for year-round urban riding, the Genesis Smithfield comes equipped with full-length mud guards so that the city muck stays where it belongs.

Powerful disc brakes make stopping a breeze, no matter what the weather. A lightweight Shimano Nexus internal hub gives you a full range of gears so you can deal with traffic, hills and pottering along at your leisure. Thanks to the rack that comes as standard, plenty of mount-points, stable geometry, and relaxed riding position the Genesis Smithfield will allow you to rely on it even for a few-months-long trip.

The Genesis Smithfield is a reliable commuter bike that will double just great as a light tourer along the European cycling paths.
