You are looking at an A1 mint condition Genesis Day One Alfine 8 speed all purpose do it all bike in Tango Orange metalic (photos show it a bit dusty from storage). These retail at over £1,100 in the shops and this one is as good as anything you will get straight from the shops. This bike can really do it all, it has lugs for touring racks, mudguards, disc brakes for the muddiest tow-paths or cyclocross course, and the incredible Alfine all enclosed 8 speed gear hub. The benefit of the hub is that it's virtually maintenance free, provides silent smooth gear changes and wont clog or suck in muddy gritty conditions like common deraileures do.
The frame is traditional geometry and uses plush Reynolds 520 steel butted tubes for a smooth bump free ride, this is mated to a strong but compliant steel fork that will take abuse both on and off road. Tyres are 700c Continental cyclo-cross tyres.
Size wise, this bike will be good for anyone from around 5'9" to around 6'1".

Due to the extortionate rates I WOULD RATHER USE ANY OTHER PAYMENT THAN PAYPAL, but am flexible with other methods of payment. If you have any questions please phone or text me on 07967125717. This is a quality bike for sale in the best possible condition so whoever wins will get a bargain, hence please don't make me any silly offers.
