Genesis Day 1 Disc
New Genesis Day 1 Disc for 2012. Basically an upgraded version of their Day 1 Cross but with, yeah you guessed it, Avid BB-7 mechanical disc brakes. Very nice.
My only concern with Genesis Day 1 cross bikes it that apparently (correct me if I'm wrong here?) they don't have space for much fatter wheels than 35c. On the other hand they have eyelets for full fenders.
I'm looking into my magic crystal ball and am seeing that this will be a huge success and that in 2013 it will be followed by many other brands with very similar simple steel cyclocross cyclocross bikes with disc brakes.
