Introducing the New 2014 Dawes Lightning DLX

IMPROVED FOR 2014: New frame design fits more comfortable, wider tires. Well equipped with 700x28c tires, wider tires are more effective at killing road buzz and discomfort. For even more comfort and durability, some riders use their own wider tires up to 700x30c.

All pro riders use Carbon forks for performance and comfort. This Dawes has one as standard equipment. Handbuilt advanced engineered and lightweight Altair 1 aluminum compact frame. Advanced Shimano Sora drivetrain and has 24 speeds. This gives you shifting performance of a Shimano drivetrain without a 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.
