This G.Genesi frame is a bit of a mystery. It's headbadge hints, that Genesi could have been a part or somehow connected to Cicli Condor in Genoa, nothern Italy. What is certain though is that it's an exceptionally elaborate frame with some unique solutions.
To start with the basics, the frame is made of Columbus SL tubes, known for being light yet strong and used by many high class bikes including racing models. So far nothing so special, you might thing, but when you take a closer look, interesting details start to surface.
The tubes are connected with nice cutout lug with a small drilled holes on the sides. The rear brake bridge has an aluminium insert which saves weight and makes a better contact point for the brake caliper. The seat lug has an unusual horizontal opening releases the unnecessary stresses when tightening the seat post. And perhaps best of all is the internal cable routing through the bottom bracket.
