    Newbie here - Genius Apache Comp XC - Any reviews? What did I just buy? (Pics added)

    I'm a newbie here, been lurking for some time and surfing the classified ads, but never found what I was looking for within my budget..

    My neighbors boss was selling a bike that I'd never heard of but had everything I was looking for.

    I'm just curious if anyone has ever heard of or better yet, has a review of Genius bikes..

    Thanks to Google, I've found that they are or were made in New Zealand, but nothing much more than that..

    There's plenty of room for improvement (wheels, forks), but so far, I'm happy. This will be my new ride after a 15 year hiatus from XC.

    Looks like a decent hard tail. Appears to have the same fork as my Raleigh--2008 RockShox Tora 289.

    I will be riding a different fork by Monday.

    They are/were a Christchurch based bike manufacturer who mainly made road bike frames, with the occasional MTB frame. They don't seem to be in business anymore sadly.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!
