The Dawes Galaxy Touring Bike


The Dawes Galaxy features a reliably strong, yet light 4130 chromoly frame and forks. The geometry is configured to give enhanced comfort even through those long days in the saddle. It is equipped with 27 speed Shimano STI Alivio gears, Tektro CR-510 cantilever brakes, Alex double wall alloy rims, Shimano hubs and Schwalbe tyres. Dump the Dawes Tour Gel saddle and get yourself a leather B21 Brooks Saddle.
