Dawes Sardar '02

A touring bike built extra tough with a compact frame and 26" wheels

No Longer Available

Product Description

Built extra tough with a compact frame and 26" wheels.

  • Reynolds 631 air hardened butted steel tubing. Like Reynolds 853, cold-drawn 631 tubing GAINS strength when heated making it a perfect material for TIG-welding.
  • Compact frame design - more stepover height, lower centre of gravity, and more flex resistant - makes the Sardar a very stable load handler.
  • The compact frame is especially good for smaller riders, including women.
  • 26" wheels with shorter spokes are stronger than 700c wheels.
  • Rigida double-walled rims, Shimano Alivio hubs, DT stainless steel spokes and Schwalbe tyres make a wheel package you can totally rely on.
  • Shimano Deore chainset and gear - Totally reliable as we have come to expect from mid-price Shimano.
  • V-brakes with V-brake-compatible drop-bar levers - intelligent specing.
  • Shimano Dura-Ace bar-end gear shifters - reckoned to be the toughest gear levers. Allow you to change gear with your hands on the drops.
  • Option - you can opt for the Sardar with Shimano STI Dual Control levers for £100 extra.
