  1. 1. The stylish retro looks of the Dawes Duchesswomens hybrid bike really makes it stand out in the world of commuter and city bikes.hybrid cloud
  2. 2. Although the classic looks are unmistakeable, donÂ’t be misled intothinking that this is a bike stuck in the 1950s - the fundamental designand outfitting are those of a modern bike The qualities that are mostemphasised by satisfied purchasers of the Duchess are its good looks,comfort, quality and value-for-money When you look at how the bike isput together, you can see how Dawes have managed to achieve this Theframe is steel and comes in either 17" or 19" sizes Colour finishes areeither red/white or purple
  3. 3. The benefits of a steel frame are its resistance to damage and the nicelyforgiving ride quality The plain steel front fork is similarly bomb-proofHowever, a steel bike is going to be somewhat heavier than say analuminium one Weighing in at 16

  5. 5. The wheels are 26” mountain-bike size and the 37mm tyres are wideenough to smooth out most road buzz, and will not stop you venturingalong paths and trails if you want The Dawes Heritage leather-looksaddle is one of the most comfortable you can get The alloy v-brakes arepretty good quality and will give the bike all the braking power it needsThe practicality of the Dawes Duchess is enhanced by many otherfeatures
  6. 6. There are mud guards and a substantial chain guard to keep you cleanand flat pedals mean that you do not need special shoes There is a frontbasket to carry all manner of useful stuff and is supported by a strut totake the weight Plenty of owners compliment the bike on its looks Wethink itÂ’s pretty chic, and the colours good too
  7. 7. The Dawes Duchess is priced from around £280 For anybody lookingfor some style, but still in a practical and comfortable package, its acertain contender Whether it’s for commuting or fun (or both), theDawes Duchess should fit the bill Article Tags:
