Re: Genesis longitude thoughts

So, after some advice off here, and a lot of research I got one. I've just finished building it up https://i.postimg.cc/vHMNwWnh/IMG-20190906-195109.jpg Quick ride around the block, and everything seems good. Not as "long" as the name suggests (probably down to using swept back bars)but it seems to ...

Re: Genesis longitude thoughts

Thanks for the replies.

Interested in your impressions of the Fat Paw grips. I've got hands like t-bone steaks and they could be just the thaaaang for my trail bike. Only had a short ride so far but first impressions are good. They're big very big, they make the ESI chunky grips I usually use feel small, I wear XL/XXL glo...
