Hey!

Got this Dawes Nomad yesterday. It was parked in a garage for ages, but after i cleaned and stripped it down today a little bit, it looks quite nice imo. Its my first "MB" ever, i was always riding road bikes before. But this darling rides so smooth, its really awesome. Wasnt able to figure out the year it was produced, maybe you guys can help me.

I would say it's a 1989 bike as 88' year would have had an alloy Swanneck type stem rather than the T-Bone type and 1990 would have had a later 300/400/500LX group.

im not familiar with the whole bike vocabulary, and im afraid my english isnt that perfect to totally understand what you mean. anyway, 1989 is the perfect year, suits the city im riding this bike in. thanks a lot!

i also found this tableau here in the forum, maybe i can confirm the year with that.

I think Exage Trail was 1989-only so further evidence.
