A true mixture of new and old. The Dawes Espresso is modelled on a traditional gents bike, but is fitted with all the mod cons.
Shimano Altus 9 speed gears, coupled with a Rapidfire shifter, take care of the hills, whilst the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes bring everything to a standstill with ease.
This bike looks like a traditional, stylish, "fashion" bike, but has all the pedigree of an everyday commuter. The mudguards fitted as standard, ensure that you and your clothes arrive looking clean and dry.
If you need a bit of a pick-me-up in the morning, we recommend an Espresso!
