Introducing the New 2017 Dawes Lightning 1500 with Carbon Forks and Shimano Wheelsets
Handbuilt advanced engineered and lightweight Altair 1 aluminum compact frame. Shimano 105/4600 has 30 speeds, gives you most of the cutting edge tech of the top of the line Ultegra and Dura Ace without the budget biting price.

Performance: The Carbon Fork is a high performance item that is normally only found on bikes starting at $900+
A full Shimano Drivetrain AND Shimano Wheelset is unheard of at this low sale price

Safety: Shimano STI shifters combine braking and shifting so you can shift or stop your bike without large hand movements

Comfort: Dawes Lightning 1500 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.

Versatile: Attach your own rear rack to the Lightning 1500's rear eyelets and grab your groceries while saving on gas
