You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

  • Brand : Genesis
  • Season : Clearance
  • Code : GN308
  • Weight : 10KG
  • Crafted from affordable yet still high quality Reynolds 520 tubing combined with a ride anywhere inspired geometry the Day One Alfine 8 is quite possibly the best commuting bike available.

    Shimano's reliable 8 speed Alfine hub provides maintenance free, smooth and reliable shifting while an all new J-Tek bar end shifter provides one of the lightest shifters available with crisp, positive shifting.

    Large 32c tyres provide a comfortable ride while still being highly efficient on tarmac and with their built in puncture protection they practically laugh in the face of the UK's broken roads.

    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.

    J-Tek 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
