Here are some more photos of the Genesis Volare 953 frame. The tapered headtube adds stiffness without looking really huge. A similar headtube was produced between Genesis and Reynolds for the 853 Latitude mountain bike (the orange one i ride!). The seat tube is also tapered so it’s larger at the bottom bracket and thinner at the seatpost clamp. This frame is every bit a racing machine, light, stiff and fast and can be built up so it weighs the UCI 6.8kg limit. See the team version of this frame being ridden during the indoor Crit at the London bike show.
