Further proof that building a touring bike with 26" wheels makes total sense.

Product Description

Details

Dawes offer further proof that building a touring bike with 26" wheels makes total sense.

  • Air-hardening Reynolds 631 cold-drawn steel frame. Air hardening means that instead of being weakened by the extreme heat of welding 631 tubes actually gain strength when heated.
  • Compact frame geometry for extra strength, extra flex-resistance and extra stepover height - not bad characteristics in a load-carrying touring frame.
  • Schwalbe 26x1.5" Marathon - fast becoming a staff favourite - grippy in the wet, fast rolling and very puncture resistant.
  • Real Shimano V-brakes with V-brake-compatible Dia Compe levers. (Most drop bar levers don't pull sufficient cable for acceptable V-brake performance. Dia Compe BL-287 levers do.)
  • Mavic rims, DT spokes and Shimano hubs - the proven wheel combo.
  • The Shimano hubs, and the frame, are disc compatible should you ever wish to consider upgrading the brakes.
  • Shimano Dura-Ace bar-end shifters - generally reckoned to be the most robust gear changers.
  • Selle San Marco Rolls saddle - a timeless classic.
