Dawes Espresso 2018


Vintage style cromoly steel frame

swept back upright handlebars

Shimano 9 speed gears

Shimano hydraulic disc brakes

Quick release alloy wheels

Full mudguards and kickstand included.

A true mixture of new and old.

The Espresso is modeled on a traditional gents bike but is fitted with all the mod cons. Shimano Altus 9speed gears with Rapidfire shifters take care of the hills, whilst the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes bring everything to a stand still with ease. This bike looks like a traditional, stylish, "fashionable" bike, but has all the pedigree of an everyday commuter. Ride to work but don't want to be head to toe in lycra? The mudguards fitted as standard ensure you and your clothes arrive looking dry and clean.

If you need a bit of a pick-me-up in the morning, we recommend an Espresso!
