    Dawes Fleur women's bike from early 80s

    This is for a friend of mine - the bike was her mother's, but has been sitting in a garage and then a shed for some time. She's no idea how much it is worth, and neither have I. To my inexperienced eye it looks to be in good condition, apart from some spots of rust on the frame. Handlebar...

    Dawes Giro Competition 300

    Hi all, Not sure if this classifies as vintage or classic but I'll give it a bash. I picked up this two-owner Dawes Giro locally in Glasgow yesterday for a great price. I wasn't really looking for another bike but couldn't resist. It's a Dawes Giro Competition 300 from 1995-98 (I think). It has...

    Info: 1977 Dawes Galaxy Seatpost Dia is 26.3mm

    For information purposes only, the seatpost diameter on a 1977 Dawes Galaxy is 26.3mm. I have ordered a new seatpost, the diameter was stamped on the side of the old seatpost, which was very convenient. These models of 1977 Dawes Galaxy have the same frame, so the same seatpost dia 26.3mm.
