Cyclo Cross is Sunday
madness. It's all the fun you can stand. Lap after lap around a dirt
course you can't entirely ride; You've got to run some of it with your
bike on your shoulder. That is what makes the Lightning Cross such a
versatile bike - it has to be fast, durable, light and capable in
nearly all conditions and THAT makes it the perfect bike for everyday,
fast, durable riding in most any condition.
Now upgraded to 24 Speeds, the Shimano Sora/2200
equipped Lightning Cross is the ULTIMATE all purpose Dawes bike for 2014. The
frame is made from specially shaped aluminum alloy tubing, custom
butted and shaped with an engineered downtube.
