For 2015 the Day One series shakes off the last of its’ CX roots as completes a transformation to a slightly more urban-focused range. The large clearances, rack & ‘guard eyelets remain (they’ll happily take a 35c knobbly) but we’ve equipped them all with the new, updated Conti Tyres Sport Contact 35c tyres with a bead-to-bead needle file tread (we’re likening them to a 35c Competition tubular). We’ve also tweaked gearing so that the range is a little more on-road orientated (singlespeeds = 46/18T / 69.4GI and the Alfine model 42/20T to give 30.1/92.1GI).
Range-wise, we’ve re-introduced a V-brake model to sit at a more accessible opening price point ($549.99 – with Shimano cassette freehub body & singlespeed spacer kit – no clunky freewheels), the Day One Disc drops $50 to $649.99 (with TRP Spyre-C mechanical disc brake and dedicated singlespeed cassette freehub body), Day One Alfine 8 continues unchanged @ $999 with J-Tek’s excellent barend shifted (100% CNC’d in Hugo, Montana) and the range-topping Alfine 8 Di2 gets an @Reynolds Technology heatr-treated 725 frameset, carbon fork, @TRP HyRd cable actuated hydraulic brakes ($1999.99). Phew!
Day One Di2 – $1999.99
Day One Alfine 8 – $999.99
