Genesis teams with All City Creative for limited ‘Flyer’

Genesis has linked with London-based All City Creative to create a batch of 100 uniquely decorated ‘Flyer’ bikes.

Loosely based on the long standing Genesis Flyer model, and using the same renowned Reynolds 520 tubed frameset, the model will be available to ship from early August 2010. In a stark contrast to the classic-styled standard Flyer, the AllCity x Genesis Flyer features riser bars and a few other sensible upgrades to bring it bang up to date.

Spec upgrades include 25c Continental Gatorskin tyres, Shimano sealed square-taper BB, Shimano 105 brake callipers, upgraded Driveline track chainset and steel pedal and toe clips with a black leather strap.

Founded as a collaborative project in 2007 by StolenSpace founder and illustrator Owen Phillips and photographer Dav Stewart, the AllCity collective is an outlet for creative projects. Over the past year, AllCity has gathered recognition as a prolific design collective, gaining commissions from Dazed&Confused, The Guardian, Faesthetic, Candy Collective Magazine and Passenger Records. The collective has also exhibited work in Saatchi&Saatchi and StolenSpace, and collaborated with photographer Fats Shariff.
