Does anyone know how to date a Dawes Super Galaxy frame, and I don’t mean take it out for a meal I’m assuming it’s a mid 90’s frame, also what size seatpost it might take, it is either a The number on the bottom is ? At a guess I’d say it’s early to mids.
But the best way to date it might be to look for contemporary Dawes catalogues online – I only established that my Galaxy is a model when I saw the exact same bike in a Dawes catalogue. According to the CTC site it’s around the early noughties, would you believe it 1″ threaded headsets that late in their making Alison. I was about to say I can’t be sure of the exact date, but those decals were current during that period.
Dawes were fitting very nice TA Zephyr cranks to their touring bikes at that time. Tourists tend to be among the most traditional of cyclists.

Endurance road bikes offer comfort over long distances, but are usually closer to a race bike than a traditional touring bike. Adventure road and gravel bikes are robust and have wide, often knobbly tyres, disc brakes and even dropper seat posts — making them ideal for cycle tours that might venture off the beaten path. Endurance and adventure road bikes could both handle a cycle touring trip.
The traditional touring bike, however, is a breed all of its own. The ideal bike for your touring trip will depend upon the terrain you plan to cover and how much kit you want to take with you. If you click on this then we may receive a small amount of money from the retailer when you purchase the item. Both come with a light weight alloy rear pannier carrier, sturdy and durable fixed chromoplastic mudguards and 32c schwalbe Marathon tyres, the only thing the Dawes Ultra Galaxy is missing is a touring map and rider.
The mm rotor mechanical disc brakes are a more modern introduction with a nod to practicality, especially in the wet. Classic styling never goes out of date — and the vintage looking Tour has got it by the bucket load, though a redesign this year means that modern tech has not been overlooked. The Bontrager Affinity rims are tubeless ready, which might be worth setting up if you want to reduce your chance of flats, but for now they come shod with 38c Bontrager H1 hard-case Ultimate tyres.

dating a Dawes Galaxy
My first touring bike was a ten speed Dawes Galaxy. I was amazed by the quality if its engineering and build. The Galaxies were solidly built Birmingham assembled bikes. In the late s Dawes moved production out of the UK. With that move their crown as one of the best touring bikes began to slip and was finally lost to the new generation of dedicated touring machines.
Does anyone have an idea what age this frameset it? Or how I can find out? http:// Thanks:smile: p.s. any guesses at a.
Dawes Galaxy Excel 631 review: first look
Today, 16th January , is exactly three years since I left London on my bicycle and it is also precisely one month since I arrived home. The border crossing between Scotland and England might just win the award for least dramatic of my entire trip, with just a pathetic little sign outside a pub to welcome me and my bike into England. I am getting a bit bored of the ice and snow.

Hi I have recently bought a Dawes Galaxy and wondered if anyone knew how I can tell what year it is? The seller had owned it from new, but it was old stock in the shop. His guess was it was 15 years old, but I think it is older than that. The serial number one the bottom bracket shell starts with some initals I guess that was who handbuilt it , followed by a series of numbers, two of which are 8 and 7, so I have a hunch it was made in Does anyone know if this is how Dawes mark up their serial numbers?
Also, if it is a , does anyone have a link to a catalogue online? Many thanks in advance. Hi Until someone more knowledgeable comes along, from what little I’ve learnt of Galaxy’s it may help people id the era it’s from by checking what size wheels are present 27 inch or c , what type of brakes are fitted, how many gears it has front and back, how may pannier eyelets are fitted front forks etc.
Also, a picture would really help, especially as the decals on the frame changed over the years. I have an old Galaxy frame myself that I will be asking for help dating but I’m sure it is mid 80’s or older.
