An overview of the Genesis Day One 10
A Single-Speed Gravel Bike?
Ok, this could make someone’s nose turn up, why is a single-speed bike on this site? Well, since most gravel bikes have very similar characteristics, we thought of adding a few different options among our bike reviews, maybe we could give you some ideas you haven’t thought of.
With their efficiency and low-maintenance requirements, singlespeed drivetrains are already a popular option for commuting, but more and more cyclists are starting to use single-speed bikes for adventure rides.
If you mostly ride in flat areas, considering a single-speed gravel bike like the Genesis Day One 10 is far from foolish. The steel frame and fork are high-quality Genesis stuff, with ample room for full-length mudguards for year-round, dry bottom commuting and off-road rides, while the Promax DSK-300 disc brakes ensure adequate stopping power.
The Genesis Day One 10 2020 is a great buy for those looking for a maintenance-free commuter that could double as a light adventure/gravel bike.
