On last night’s ‘The Gadget Show‘, Helen Skelton headed to the hills, taking three leading road bikes (Including the Genesis Day One Alfine 8) to the Tour of Britain route in the Lake District.

“That little hub is impressive!”

The Genesis is available from Drover Cycles, along with the Altura Night Vision Evo jacket Helen is wearing. Visit us in store, or contact us to get your hands on them!

Genesis Day One Alfine 8: Features

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
