Dawes Super Galaxy for sale. Probably from the mid - 1990s, with the 531ST frame.
Centre of bottom bracket to centre of top tube: 20.5"/53cm
Centre of seat tube to centre of headstock: 22"/56cm
Nose of saddle to centre of handlebars: 19.5"/50cm
Standover height (ground to top of top tube): 31"/79cm
Fitted mostly with Deore DX kit, including derailleurs, hubs and chainset. Rims are Belgian Alesas and tyres are Continental Super Touring with plenty of wear left. It's currently fitted with straight bars and bar ends, which give a nice variety of hand positions for all day rides or touring. There are mudguards, a rear carrier and a Cateye Mity3 cycle computer.
The bike is in generally good condition and everything works. I recently fitted new gear/brake levers. The paintwork is in generally good order with no more than the kind of light marking you'd expect on a bike of this age.
In short, this is ready to ride away and will make someone a nice touring bike or a useful winter hack or commuter. These are very versatile bikes and the steel framed versions are beginning to acquire some retro cool! It's only for sale because it's slightly too big for my girlfriend.
Cash on collection is fine by me and will save you paying the postage costs and me paying Paypal fees and having to dismantle and pack the bike up. But I will post it if I have to. New ebayers welcome. 99p start, no reserve, but the bike is advertised elsewhere and may be removed if it sells.
