I think, my Dawes “Edge” and “Edge eXTRa” from 1992 are too cheaply :roll: to start an extra topic of the built-up, but both are manufactured from british steel. 8)

The 1992 "Edge" was the last with full Reynolds 531 Magnum frame and fork tubes, the 1992 "Edge eXTRa" was the first fillet brazed mtb from Dawes - also the first and the last at the same time with full Reynolds 531 Designer Select frame and fork tubes.

I mean - these bikes are the best they Dawes ever made.

Well, no such thing but it is a real beauty, and testament to the amount of effort Gio put in. Chapeau.

Now that is a real peach of a frame. I love the old school cable guides and stays. Lushly.

Thanks for adding this - really great inspiration for getting the LLoyd repaired. I actually owned your frame set for a couple of days but passed it on as there was a mix up with pm/dibs so I know what a great job you have done ;)

You are right there - never seen the EdgeXTRa before - smashing bike. I always liked the to spec Dawes MTBs - great looking bikes.

Thans for adding the pictures of the 'Rourke too :D

There are some really good looking bikes on this thread, which has lead me to do some looking about for frames / projects, and I have a question regarding British Steel.

Can someone tell my why Dave Yates frames very rarely come up for sale, and when they do why they are so cheap?

Conversely, Chas Roberts D.O.G.S..... seem plentiful, and yet have a much better s/h value.

Any particular reason for this?
