Dawes Vantage

Dawes Vantage

Price: About $600
Specs: Aluminium frame, steel fork, lower-end Shimano components, front and rear mudguards, resin pedals.
Who has used it: It’s relatively new and untested. If you find a review, please tell us!
Upsides:
Everything you need to get started at a cheap price. A great beginner’s touring bike and you won’t be crying too much if it’s stolen.
Downsides: Nothing is particularly high quality. You won’t be able to carry much luggage on this without some serious upgrades.

    Hi all,

    I’m riding with the Dawes Vantage, and it was doing great until my bikeshop replaced my rear wheel with a cheapo (six spokes broken, but my fault for not doing the research!). Anyways, I’m now in Finland and need to upgrade my wheels for crossing Central Asia. What is a recommended 700cc touring wheel that can manage a two year tour with a fully laden bike? Thanks

    Chris

    I have one myself since January this year. I have the 2012 model which runs Vittoria Randonneur 32’s rather than the Marathons of 2011’s model.
    I wasn’t keen on the twitchy handling so upgraded a few parts to try and counteract this with some success. I see no reason why this bike can’t carry heavy loads or do serious touring. The components are at the lower end but work perfectly well.
    I think you should personally test the bike before knocking it for having cheaper components 🙂
    The same bike has been used for a few LEJOG/JOGLE tours without problems.

    Thanks for your reply William. I’ve done over 15,000km on the bike now, and it was the replaced wheel that I referred to as “a cheapo”. The Dawes wheel components are great for European roads, but I still think at minimum the tyres would need to be upgraded for the unpredictable and demanding roads between Turkey and Australia. Thanks for the links too 🙂

    Kind regards,

    Chris

    Singapore is really fascinating for its multilayered social tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India as well as everything in between, there’s a lot to experience as well as discover below – its lively shades and also abundant background makes every edge an interesting adventure – foodies ought to absolutely see! If that is something that speaks with you also after that Singapore must not be missed as your following travel location! Hawker Centres in Singapore supply an incredible range of neighborhood meals. Do not miss attempting Hainanese Poultry Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were breathtaking – I especially admired Supertree Grove and also Cloud Forest – they really took my breath away! The light show at night was truly exciting and an absolute must-see! Singapore supplied such an extraordinary mix of futuristic architecture and lavish greenery – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is truly fantastic to find! Singapore’s public transportation is superior! From its reliable metro train system and simple travel with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for leisure – which boasts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and extra destinations! – their public transportation has actually established new requirements. Aquarium, stunning beaches, as well as other home entertainment for the entire family make Singapore an excellent means to spend a day. Don’t miss Singapore’s ArtScience Museum which incorporates art, science, as well as modern technology in an impressive mix! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were really enchanting; with interactive exhibitions and also captivating displays creating an extraordinary trip – definitely worth a see! I was genuinely surprised at Singapore’s incredible buying scene! From deluxe shopping malls such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s lively markets there really is something here for any kind of shopaholic to experience! Make sure to leave some space in your travel suitcase! I located Singapore Zoo among the finest zoos I have actually gone to; it’s open-concept enclosures as well as immersive environments developed a real wild animals experience, not failing to remember Night Safari for added excitement! Singapore’s multiculturalism is an additional drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, as well as Western impacts can be seen almost everywhere from design to cuisine; creating a remarkable fusion!
