    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...

    Bargain Dawes Discovery 601( Guiseley)

    https://www.gumtree.com/p/bicycles/dawes-discovery-601-cycle/1375689382 Good price, especially in todays market, it would have been around £900 new. I've had loads of Discos, I'd have had this too if it was a size larger. I think this frame is 21".

    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...

    New arrival: Dawes Kingpin

    I bought this a week ago or so and collected it today: a 1977 purple 20" 3 speed shopping bike. All original and intact, although the 3 speed hub needs a bit of work to shift properly. It's got new tyres so has had some work recently. Also there's quite a few scratches that'll need paint. Well...

    Dawes Stirling brake question.

    ] So I picked this frame up recently,lovely looking paint job, done by Bob Jackson. There are some sticky out bars that I’m assuming are for the brakes. What would be a good type to look out for to suit this lovely frame. They kind of remind me of mountain bike brake holders, is that what...

    Touring - which bike? Old Dawes vs modern B'twin.

    So the last two tours I've been on I've ridden my first road bike love, my B'twin Triban 3. We've been to Wales and Scotland together, here's a photo of it in the Cairngorms: Ah, happy memories :) In the past 6 months or so there's a new steed in town, my 1984 Dawes Galaxy. Of course, this...

    Tandem Resurrection - Dawes Super Galaxy Twin

    Bought this tandem way back in '88/89, and had fun on it with MBH for several years until kids came along, and time was dedicated to them. They never developed into bike riders unfortunately, and I couldn't sell them so the tandem has languished in a couple of sheds for 20 years. In the meantime...
