Introducing the New 2012 Dawes Lightning DLX
Handbuilt advanced engineered and lightweight Altair 1 aluminum compact frame. Advanced Shimano Sora and MicroShift has 24 speeds, gives you most of the shifting performance of a Shimano drivetrain without the budget biting price.

Versatile Comfort and Performance
The Dawes Lightning DLX 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.

Guaranteed Fit* System

Then simply adjust the stem and seat height to your liking and ride happy.
