I saw this on gumtree abd picked it up this morning its a Dawes switchback i think its about 1990 or 1991 i am trying to find some catalogs to see.
Does anyone know about the stem ? i havent seen one like it befora accept the flexi stem.
The bike is in great original conditon but needs new hand grip as one has split, Even the original derallia guard is present !

Also not a mountain bike but was given this yesterday which might be a town runaround

No help on the Dawes, have you checked the catalogues on here?

Big fan of the road bike, trying to find something similar here, but for peanuts. No luck at the tip despite my constant visits :oops:

Not long moved into a new house and decided to clean out the junkyard garage this week. To my surprise, i found the same Dawes Switchback with all original tyres, components etc but a different fixed stem :)

I'll be popping it on Ebay next week if your interested?
