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 saddle. It's a bit different to my other bikes with the flightdeck gear shifters and wider handlebars, but it's turning into a keeper:-)

Superb condition! What did it cost?

I got it for £125 in the end, bit more than my normal car-boot bikes expenditure but it's cleaned up well. I'm quite keen on toe clips and straps, so have put these on instead of the SPD pedals that were on the bike.

Thanks, I'm pleased with it so far and it's going to cut down on some journey times for sure. 22 inch frame size seems to be ideal for me (I'm 5ft 9) which is a bonus^_^

That’s nice, very eclectic mix of components, traditional butted steel frame and crown forks, quill handlebar stem but a modern groupset, quite a nice mix!

I'm enjoying the rides so far, the mudguards will come in handy for the months to come. It's nice to have a bit more stopping power than my other steel bikes, the Shimano brakes are very good. The yellow and black looks great!

I remember them on the Audax rides in the mid to late 90s. I bought an Audax Clubman in 2013 when I was out in Slovakia. Used to use it for bimbling and the occasional ride into work.
