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.
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!
