Introducing the New Dawes Lightning 1000
Handbuilt advanced engineered and lightweight Altair 1 aluminum compact frame. Shimano 2200 has 24 speeds, gives you some of the cutting edge tech of the top of the line Ultegra and Dura Ace without the budget biting price. See More Pics

Versatile Comfort and Performance
The Dawes Lightning 1000 can be set up for a comfortable upright position. Want to get more serious? Turn a few bolts and you have a lower position and a competitive racing machine while still having the low gears you need to flatten most any hill or mountain pass and headwind.
