Thanks Adam, right I need to find some 45mm+ forks then. Not easy on my budget though, lol

Has the genesis got a tapered head tube? I managed to get a set of aluminium forks for my onza on ebay. Just standard head tube though. Think they are around the same geometry. Still one set left.

Nah, get some with a more normal offset, it will ride better.

 

Internal 44mm head tube on the Genesis.

Any idea as to what size star nut to fit in these forks ? @Adam@TartyBikes?

You'd have to measure the steerer.

Seems to be 22mm. Which size would you suggest ?

You ideally need 1-3mm larger than your steerer tube ID, so somewhere in that 23-25mm range would be best.

So 23.5mm? typically would be out of stock! :lol:

Just found a description of the forks and it say that a standard star nut fits. Would the First top cap kit work @Adam@TartyBikes?

Not without some angle grinder action.

Its not a special item, pop down your LBS and see what they have.

I bought a set of breeth disc forks in the end, hopefully they suit the frame.

Does anyone know what bottom bracket axle width came on the original genesis, I know the BB shell is 68mm but unsure of the axle width?

 

Cheers
