10 of the best new bikes
Genesis Day 01 Disc
Tinkering with gears may be some folks' idea of fun, but most of us just want a bike that delivers maximum smiles for minimal fuss. That's where the Genesis Day 01 Disc comes in: it has only one gear, so there are no shifters to keep in tune, and the brakes are powerful Avid BB7s, which'll run for months with barely a tweak of an adjuster.
Technically, it’s a cyclocross bike, so it’s tough enough to take off-road, but with rack and mudguard mounts, it’d make a fantastic commuter.
