2017 Genesis Columbia Road

Genesis

The Columbia Rd combines classic Mixte-inspired frame lines and a low-step through frame with the contemporary performance of modern disc brakes in an eminently practical and stylish package. To describe the Columbia Road as a 'women’s specific' bike would be doing this bike a huge disservice. It's true, the low diagonal toptube design was originally conceived for more flattering riding in skirts/dresses and easier mounts/dismounts (and the Columbia Rd does this very well), but look beyond that and you'll see the ideal, easy-access bicycle for both men and women alike, with poor flexibility, old niggling injuries who are otherwise being prevented from riding by restrictive frame designs.
