The Galaxy is like a journey into the past of bike design, only so many of the challenges of modern bikes seem to have mysteriously been solved. The cabling is external, and even an amateur mechanic could give the lot a thorough clean or replace the cables in a matter of minutes. Not only that but there’s a delicate elegance to the routing of the brake cables at the front and rear. What’s more, with the mechanics of the bike laid out so clearly, this is a bike that almost anyone could fix, almost anywhere in the world – no doubt a key appeal of the wonderful world of touring. This bike was made in Birmingham, England. This bike has been custom built from a 1970’s Dawes Galaxy lugged CR-MO touring frame and fork with the following components:

-New 27’’ Serfas Pacer Meo Series Tires and Inner Tubes
-Dia-Compe Drop Forged brakes
-Shimano 105 SLR brake levels
-MODOLO FLASH ANATOMIC DESIGN BREVETTATO handlebar
-Nitto stem
-Suntour barend shifters
-Shimano 105 crankset
-Suntour Cyclone 7000 rear derailleur
-Suntour Cyclone front derailleur
-Caged pedals

This bike has been fully tuned up with new brake and shifter cables and housing, all bearings (head, crank, wheels) have been cleaned and repacked, brakes and derailleurs have been cleaned and lubricated, and chips and scratches touched up. This bike is ready for your next adventure. I asking for 580 or best offer.
