    Dawes Galaxy rebuild

    So I'm having another go at building up my Galaxy frame having not been happy with the previous two attempts, firstly with (mostly) Shimano LX 3x9 speed gearing on flat bars then with Tiagra 2x10 speed compact on drop bars. Now that I've retired (and in the current lockdown situation) I'm...

    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.

    Vintage Dawes?

    Hi All, I would really appreciate some assistance with trying to identify the Range this particular model is from. There are a few clues on the frame, but research is proving to be tricky and is not leading to any conclusive results, so far. The only thing Its previous owner could tell me about...

    Dawes Red Feather Find.

    The discovery of an early Dawes Red Feather came by just sheer chance whilst out on a ride with a friend. The sight of a discarded table lamp drew my attention as we approached an area which is regularly used for dumping rubbish. I jokingly said to my friend that it might be valuable and went...

    Dawes 531 Lady Galaxy (half mixte) frame

    Well it's time to decide what to do with this frame set. It's got headset/forks and bb. My plan was to restore for my daughter but she took a shine to a Claud Butler of similar spec and decided that would be better for her needs. (leaving locked up outside work in all weather's) So if anyone...

    Enjoying my old Dawes Galaxy 1977

    I bought this 1977 Dawes Galaxy a few years ago, overhauled and refurbished it with some modern parts, including 700c wheels, chainset etc. I've put some bigger 35c Vittoria Randoneur tyres on it over winter, which are very comfy and fill the 27inch wheel gap nicely. This is a very comfy frame...

    Wanted: Dawes Galaxy or Horizon

    Hi all. If anyone has a Dawes Galaxy or Horizon for sale please get in touch. Ideally 22-23" frame size, but not the 23.5" as too big for me. Ideally 90s or 00s era. Would also consider buying just the frame. Many thanks

    Dawes Courier

    Hi all, Picked up a Dawes before Christmas and have been trying to improve it since, it's a Courier which I believe is from 1951. Pretty original, it even had the whitewall tyres which had seen better days! Frame number is LS6697. Reynolds 531 frame with 3-speed S/A gears. Williams chainset, GB...

    Dawes Cambridge Mixte - errand bike

    I keep looking at my errand bike and thinking about how much it could be improved with grippier pedals and tyres and how all the plastic clashes with the steel frame ( which I love). And how much I dislike the fake rattan basket on the front, though I am not sure what I would replace it with (...

    Dawes Audax Giro

    Visited my local car-boot at the weekend and couldn't resist a Dawes, as was in really good condition too. Didn't know much about the Audax bikes, this has a 531 frame so reasonably light. Triple chainring, Shimano Tiagra 4400 stuff so maybe late 1990's? Mavic MA3 wheels and a nice Rolls...

    Just picked up a Dawes Academy

    I've been after the next size up of bike for my son and found a Dawes Academy 24 for a good price locally. It seems a good bike for the money. The quality seems spot on and the components seem better than a lot of bikes aimed at children. Weight wise it is 9.4kg as it is but it has a stand...

    Dawes Milk Race 25.5"

    I bought this a few years ago on whim to add to my collection of bikes. I spent some time and effort fixing it up with new tyres, chain, pedals, cables and elbow grease. I then rode it for a few miles and promptly hung it back up in the garage. I would suggest that at some point in the future...

    Dawes Kingpin: update and upgrade

    Pulled the Dawes Kingpin out for a check-over as we're about to start some updates and it's incredibly rusty: stored carefully but I knew it was very chipped with some rust when I bought it last year. We've since fitted a lighter seatpost and purple/black Scoop saddle which saved about 1kg...
