Pedals Shimano SPD combination platform.

Fitted with Tubus Logo alloy rack, 2 x bottle cages, SKS chromo plastic mudguards (with front extender) and frame-fit pump.

It's seen limited dry road miles only, has never been loaded or toured and has been kept under cover in the garage: it is immaculate and unmarked apart from minor scuffing to the crank arms and a little bar tape wear.

This is probably the last and best quality model made by Dawes. The finish is excellent and it's extremely well built. It combines Shimano Tiagra road and Deore/XT MTB components and a spare, new like-for-like XT rear derailleur is included.

It was bought for an intended LEJOG but then I relocated and life got in the way (any excuse) and since then it's had road use as an occasional alternative to my road bike, which now needs replacing. It won't get used for its intended purpose and, having sold a number of other bikes on here recently, I am moving to just one bike.

Selling for £1200 ono, buyer collects from Cambs. Ian (07919 305112)
