Well had my Gary Fisher Paragon nicked off the back of my car, so I bought this Dawes as I had to have a trail bike, and it was cheap. Replaced some of the crap components and have a bike I've been very impressed with. I really really like the Geo of this bike better really than most bikes I've tried! The frame is a bit heavy, but super strong so I can't complain
Picture is from imediately after I put it together, no current pix yet.
Was going to get a better frame end of season or this winter, but don't think I will, now. Really like this bike think I'll just upgrade some of the parts, maybe get some sweet Jones Loop bars!
