Would a Dawes Galaxy / Super Galaxy / Ultra Galaxy be overkill for the everyday commute (8 MILES) with occassional weekend rides? I was looking at the 601 again and noticed that Evans had the Ultra Galaxy discounted and I started drooling. It has a triple chainring and 27 Shimano XT gears which would be ideal for round these parts. Stick some panniers on and I could even do the weekly shop. So, should I stick to my original plan of getting the Discovery 601 (where I would need to get mudguards and a pannier rack too), or treat myself to the Ultra Galaxy and join the "my bike's worth more than my car" brigade? Somebody talk some sense into me!
