I got my first road bike in when I was It had solid steel cranks attached to the axle with cotter pins, and weighed a ton. The bike I yearned for was a Dawes Galaxy with a Reynolds frame. I bought one in from a bike shop in Kettering, which specialised in end of line models and odd sized frames. I tried to convince myself that the Dawes was fine but in the end I had to accept that it was too small for me. There are plenty of Galaxies available on eBay now but competition has become fierce as people realise the virtues of a classic steel frame.

My first touring bike was a ten speed Dawes Galaxy. I was amazed by the quality if its engineering and build. The Galaxies were solidly built Birmingham assembled bikes.

Dawes Cycles is a British bicycle manufacturer known for its high-quality hand-built bicycles. Dawes produces a full range of bikes including road, mountain bikes and tandems, but is best known for touring bikes, specifically the Galaxy and the Super Galaxy model lines.
Founded in Birmingham, the company is now a significant brand in the UK. It is not related to Dawes USA. Dawes was originally primarily a racing cycle manufacturer, and it was in this guise that the trademark Galaxy first appeared, but since , when it was fitted with wide-ratio gears and Reynolds tubing, the Galaxy was viewed as the benchmark in the English touring bicycle market. Bikes were originally hand-built in Tyseley, near Birmingham, but frames are now manufactured in the Far East and assembled in the UK.

I used to sell these by the lorry load when i was a saturday boy at the Berkshire cycle co. Dad would get a Galaxy , mum a horizon and son an Atlantis.

As far as I know, Dawes is another brand. The Dawes Galaxy touring bike is something of a cult bike in touring circles at least.
