Hi I have just picked up a Dawes Touring frame on ebay for £11-50. It is a steel frame reybolds 531 I think... not too sure??? The frame includes fork, stem and handle bars and the original triple 26, 36, 46 crank set. It is in fantastic condition. Basically I need the following: Wheels 700c x 100mm front and 700c x 130mm rear (measured the drops front and back) Breaks - Cantilever or V brake Seat Post (25.8mm) and Seat Gear levers and brake levers - eg Shiano 105's Rear casette x 8 speed. Front and rear derailers Cabling Downtube Cable Stop Adjusters / bosses. I would like to change the crankset to a double 42 / 52 with 8 gears at the back. Could someone who has some knowledge of Dawes tourers tell me how old this frame is. I want to change the downtube shifters to ones on the handlebars. I would like some help and advice with components and things to use. I would like to build this up as a solid weekend road bike that is quicker than my current bike. I weigh 18 stone and have mutilated the back wheel on my claud butler urban 100. Any suggestions on possible setups and components? Thanks in advance for your help.
