2006 Dawes Audax. Dawes always had a reputation for good bikes when I first started riding. Subconsciously I must have always wanted one because I was immediately drawn to it when I was looking for a new road bike. It's not the lightest bike by carbon standards but it fits, is comfortable, has all the gears I need and is flexible enough to be used in a variety of guises. I can't see me ever getting rid of it.
