An overview of the Genesis Day One 10
A Single-Speed Gravel Bike?



Ok, this could make someone’s nose turn up, where are the gears? Is this a single-speed?

Well, the 2019 version was, but now Genesis decided to put a Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub, to keep the bike low-maintenance but give the owners some more options to tackle hilly routes.

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, single-cog drivetrains are already a popular option for commuting, but more and more cyclists are starting to use gear hubs bikes for adventure rides.

If you are not planning on extreme rides, considering a hub gear 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.
