Pretty much decided on a genesis day one single speed (drop ver.), however, before i splash cash, is there any thoughts on a cheap alfine cross/commute bike – not really for racing, more like winter commutes/adventures!
day one alfine looks a wee bit pricey at £450 more than ss version.
Also, must be available on halfords C2W scheme so I think it may rule out anything from on-one? (if not then that may open up more options).
Budget is tight, want to spend as little as poss. as I also have an MTB and lightweight cross ‘race’ bike.
If I am not mistaken Day One will come up with Alfine 11 in 2011 so check with them but I bet the price will more.
Personally I quite like the look of the Raleigh Sojourn especially the colour co-ordination and I would rather the frame be EBB but not a major problem. Also Raleigh Sojourn is only available in the USA at around $1,000 apparently but then you might need another £500 to covert it to Alfine 11.
I might convert my Singular Swift (none EBB and not the one above) to Alfine 11 later on when I have time. 🙂
