flat bar road bike
I was looking at a genesis day 01 for fitness training but told its a road bike and unsuitable for county roads or dash through a park..

Can anyone tell me why not - components seem good and tyres are 25 - could change to 28 to improve things but what is different about this to a something like a sirrus apart from being lighter - surely potholes won't break it ?

It will be fine for light off-road use.

The brakes will limit the size of tire and fender you can use. A bike with disk or cantilever brakes would give you more options. Other than that, looks fine.
