The Louis Garneau Genix TTR1. It's hard to argue with the Hawaiian beach, even if this isn't the most amazing bike we've seen today.

After taking our First Look at the Boardman AiR TTE, this Louis Garneau Gennix TR1 just doesn't seem all that exciting. In short, the Boardman is WAY cooler than the Louis, ut we're taking a look at the latter bik all the same. This article will just be a gallery with captions - no writeup like I did for the Boardman AiR TTE. Enjoy!



  • The Louis Garneau Genix TTR1. It's hard to argue with the Hawaiian beach, even if this isn't the most amazing bike we've seen today.
  • Ah yes, these again. Although Louis claims their brakes are proprietary, the brakes on the TR1 look a lot like the Tektro TTV. Both of these are V-brakes, which *can* be done well, but often aren't. We just took a look at the Boardman TTE, which does V-brakes well. The BMC TM01 also does a good job. This implementation isn't my favorite.
  • A multi-position Ritchey clamp is par for the course.
  • The TR1 uses a standard front end, shown here with the Shimano PRO Missile EVO aerobar. This is the original PRO bar, and much easier to wrench than the new version.
  • The Shimano PRO Missile bar isn't as expensive as the other options like the Vuka Stealth, but it's still a great option on bikes l ike this one.
  • Another nice photo of the TR1 on the beach.
