Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice about the new Day One Alfine 8 is the new, lower asking price. Genesis have not sacrificed any performance though, have increased reliability, and even dropped a fair chunk of weight in the process too. Not bad, huh?! New shifting duties are performed by J-Tek’s excellent indexed bar-end shifter; made from high- quality, 100% aluminium, precision-CNC’d in their Hugo, Montana workshop. Not only one of the lightest bar-end shifters on the market at a svelte 64g, the J-Tek unit offers solid, crisp, positive performance and proven reliability when paired with the Alfine 8sp hub – a seriously capable, low-maintenance, everyday workhorse of a bike. The large volume 32c tyres are efficient, comfy and, thanks to their built-in breaker-belt, laugh in the face of the UK’s broken roads. For those a little more adventurous and eager to explore the path less travelled, the Day One will happily accommodate 35c knobblies and front & rear pannier racks.
Reynolds 520: With similar properties to the famed 531 alloy-steel, Reynolds 520 butted cromoly tubing is made under license for Reynolds in Taiwan, allowing more people affordable access to bikes and frames made from tubing manufactured to their same exacting standards and high quality. Rack & Mudguard Ready: Generous clearances and eyelets for full-length mudguards and front and rear racks mean the Day One morphs quickly and effortlessly into an all-weather load carrier. Tour and expedition ready! Shimano Alfine 8: Shimano’s robust 8sp ‘everything inside’ internal hub gear offers a wide gear range and mile after mile of low maintenance, hassle-free riding and complements the clean aesthetic of the Day One nicely.

Not only one of the lightest bar-end shifters on the market at a svelte 64g, the J-Tek unit offers solid, crisp, positive performance and proven reliability when paired with the Alfine 8sp hub.
