Dawes Galaxy Plus - Gents & Ladies Touring Bike - SIZES 43CM & 48CM
The Galaxy Plus is a new member to the Dawes team and steps up to the mark with some subtle but brilliant features like a steel Reynolds 520 Chromoly frame, chromoly fork, Shimano Alivio 27 speed gears and Shimano BR-R517 mechanical disc brakes. The Galaxy Plus is designed to be strong, comfortable and the mile eating workhorse that everyone expects from a Dawes touring bike.
With subtle styling suited to a wide range of tastes, this bike is sure to impress you and those around you. The mechanical disc brakes will help prevent loss of braking power in the wet and when cycling down muddy lanes. The geometry of this bike is still very relaxed compared to a racing bike, but offers a slightly more aerodynamic position compared to the Galaxy Classic.
You can remain confident, given the Dawes name, that this bike will go on and on, mile after mile, day after day. This bike will be the work horse you need to get you to wherever you're going, every time.
Dawes Super Galaxy - Mens Touring Bike - SIZES 48CM & 58CM
The Super Galaxy features the renowned Reynolds 631 air hardening tubeset with a triple butted chromoly fork. This tubeset is super tough which means the wall thickness can be reduced to save weight without reducing overall strength. The hill busting 30 speed Shimano transmission ensures you’ll always have enough gears to take you almost anywhere.
This bike pretty much defines the phrase touring bike, the Galaxy name has almost become synonymous with touring as a discipline, and the Super Galaxy is nothing short of an ambassador for the name. With mechanical disc brakes offering increased stopping power, as well as preventing any loss of braking power in the mud, you can be more confident going downhill. Then with the 30 speed Tiagra gears, with STI levers, you can use less energy on the climbs.
As with the other Galaxy touring bikes, a rear pannier rack is included, meaning you can carry your luggage without having to wear it, enabling you to be more comfortable and preventing the need to carry extra weight on your legs when out of the saddle.
