Genesis Day One 10 2018 Bike
Genesis is a UK bike brand specialising in no-nonsense road, touring, urban and mountain bikes for adults and children. Ranging from great value models upto competition-ready racers and with the dire UK weather in mind, they are generally suited to mixed weather conditions and offer comfortable geometries.
The Day One 10 is a simple, steel, single speed steed with the potential to be used in many ways. Leisure, errands, commutes, touring (with some alterations), it's your call.
The full Chromoly frameset construction makes for a super strong build with vibration-dulling properties. It's front and rear rack compatible, features a horizontal dropout which means it's Nexus/Alfine compatible, uses full coverage mudguards and mechanical disc brakes. And that's about it! No gears to fiddle with or maintain, no fancy bells and whistles (you get a bell regardless), just a functional, minimal workhorse you can really depend on.
If you need something a little more substantial the Day One 20 includes a Shimano Nexus 8-speed internally geared hub, as does the Day One LTD with the addition of dynamo-powered lights and a rear pannier rack.
