With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Genesis Equilibrium Custom Build Ex-Hire Road Bike - Dark Blue



Ex-Hire Genesis Equilibrium Road Bike Custom Build

As a custom build these would retail for around £3,500 but are selling for £2,399.

This year we are offering our ex-hire road bikes for sale. They've had fairly low levels of use - on average each has been ridden 8-10 times - and are in very good condition indeed with frames showing very little cosmetic damage.

Proven Equilibrium geometry and practicality combines with traditional steel frame and confidence-inspiring disc brake performance, to make for the ideal UK road disc all-rounder, and one of the most adaptable steel road frames out there.

We custom-built these to ensure we got the ideal spec we wanted and we think we chose well! No corners have been cut so, unlike with some complete bikes you might look at, here you get an Ultegra rear mech with Ultegra shifters including rotors, BB, chain, etc; brakes with finned pads; quality FSA finishing kit. We have even upgraded the wheels adding a set of DT Swiss E1800 Splines and incorporated some nice touches like PRO alloy bolted bar-end plugs.

Alloy seat post and Brooks Cambium saddle


The bikes are washed and serviced after each hire, and have a thorough pre delivery inspection before sale.
