Versa shifters have allowed us to use an 11 speed Alfine hub with drop bars for all-day efficiency.
Without dount one of the prettiest, but also one of the most versatile bikes in our range. Perfectly suited to anything from a daily commute to a few months getting lost in Europe and exploring the beautiful world around us.
A combination of features inspired by Vin Cox’s ‘Great Bike Ride’ - a fast-and-light round-the-world record ride on a Shimano Alfine hub-equipped Croix De Fer - the Day One Alfine 11 has both braking and 11-speed gearing tucked well out of the way of the elements.
Reynolds 853 is known the world over, famed for it's winning combination of low weight and high-strength. Unlike other steels, 853 is also air-hardening, meaning that as the area around the weld cools, it actually gets stronger. We have used a special 853 DZB (double zonal butted) downtube to add Cyclocross strength without adding weight (clean, gusset-free design).
Large 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!
There's good reason Avid BB7's are widely regarded as the best mechanical disc brakes on currently on the market - lightweight, ample stopping power and plenty of adjustability for ease of setup and maintenance.
The 11sp version of Shimano's excellent Alfine hub offer increased gear range and oil-bath internals for extended service intervals. Go further for longer basically.
