Dawes Super Galaxy versus Galaxy.

Dawes Super Galaxy. 2012. Brand new. 53cms.The main differences between the Super Galaxy and the Galaxy can be seen through the photos.Both run with the Reynolds 631 frameset.

The Super has Shimano Tiagra STI shifters against the more traditional bar end shifters on the Galaxy.For ease of use the STI system wins hands down but if you are used to them the bar end shifters are very reliable and appeal to the aficionado !

Super comes with the upgraded outboard bottom bracket as opposed to sealed BB in Galaxy.Great system if you need to change your chainset for different terrain quickly and easily.

Super has upgraded Shimano Deore hubs in both wheels as opposed to ordinary shimano hubs in Galaxy.

Super has more glorified genuine gel saddle as opposed to the normal sport tourer saddle.

The Galaxy I have from 2012 has deore rear derailleur but for 2013 both models are running with long drop tiagra derailleurs.

Both then very similar in that they both have the same framesets ,wheels, tubus racks,sks mudguards etc.......great quality bikes to be honest.


RRP £1499.Myprices
