    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.

    From £799.

    or the cheaper version with non disc v-brake? From £3.99.

    I know the on-one is a few quid cheaper, but it is fugly, compared to the Genesis IMHO.

    On-One Pompetamine Alfine needs to straighten the forks a bit that’s all. 😆 £200 cheaper.

    Or Cotic Roadrat but then not sure about the price.

    Or this … but not sure if it is available in the UK. Not Alfine.

    Singular Swift ?

    Like the singular!

    The day one Alfine looks great… but £450 for cheap discs and an alfine hub? If possible the day one single could be a better bet and convert to an alfine 11spd later?

    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. 🙂
