Genesis Col Du Glandon 2014 47cm

The Col du Glandon is the smaller peak that sits to the side of the Croix de Fer - which should give you a fair idea about what this new model is all about.
The 'in-betweener' wheel size may well be the current hot trend in the mtb world, but we've been thinking outside of the box somewhat; adopting it as the ideal basis for an alternate format 'jack-of-all-trades' dropbar bike aimed at smaller/younger riders.
With 700c frame geometry generally compromised on any frame smaller than 50cm (as manufacturers try in vain to make the numbers fit, but not necessarily work) and 650c tyre options extremely limited and unlikely to expand anytime soon, 650b gives us that much needed extra bit of clearance for proper frame fit/geometry and ample tyre further down the line (future-proofed).
With a lightweight double-butted 6061 Aluminium frame and compliant butted Cr-Mo fork paired to a super wide-range youth/entry-level friendly gearing and comfy, large-volume 35c tyres (and clearance to go much bigger), the Col du Glandon is a refreshingly different take on a versatile road bike designed specifically for both smaller and younger riders.
