genesis bikes madison track bike prototype

Genesis are working on a track bike, I wasn’t into at first but it’s growing on me the more I look at it.

“With the Olympics hitting London in 2012 we thought it was just about the right time to start thinking about bringing a proper Track bike into the Genesis product range. So something alloy, something super stiff, with proven geometry and a simple but classical aesthetic that our Genesis customers look for.”

At around about £600 complete I think it’ll appeal to a lot of people, both those getting into actual track racing and those wanting an affordable track bike to mash around town. There’s no word on final spec yet but lets hope they drop the Japanese Script on the top tube and darken the red paint before production. Check out the Genesis blog for more photos and info.
