The Day One 20 brings all the associated benefits of singlespeed riding with it’s single, ultra-efficient optimised chainline and adds the practicality of Shimano’s Nexus 8sp internal geared hub with its’ wide-range gearing and sealed-from-the-elements drivetrain. Returning a similar range to a conventional double setup (30-92 gear inches, with a whole lot of useable range in between) and with mounts for racks both front and rear, the Day One 20 is the ideal low-maintenance workhorse for those wanting to perhaps carry moderate loads efficiently and comfortably over undulating landscapes. It’s a supremely versatile bike – we’ve even seen them geared down (via a simple and affordable sprocket change out back) and handle some pretty demanding expeditions with aplomb.
