Is this the bike? (2)

Genesis croix-de-fer

It’s a steely – a softer ride

It has good mechanical disk breaks

Shimano Tiagra group set – not high spec, nothing fancy, but adequate

Probably not the lightest bike

Needs different tires

May need a different saddle

Not the prettiest bike – but who cares
