Ex-Hire Dawes Discovery Twin Tandem Bike 2020 17/21"

4.9 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

This is an ex-hire bike, and has been used on our hire fleet. This means the bike will show signs of cosmetic damage such as scratches and marks. The bike will be given a full safety check prior to sale, and will include a full manufacturers warranty (although wear and tear is excluded from this).

The 6061 aluminium tandem frame is lightweight and strong, and the Shimano 24-speed gearset can cope with anything the road throws at you, from uphill climbs to flat countryside roads, with EZ-Fire shifters for fast and effective shifting.

The Tektro alloy V-type brakes give you smooth and precise stopping, and the 26" alloy wheels have CNC-milled sides and quick-release hubs, with Kenda Kenda 26" x 1.95" tyres soaking up the miles. And with full chromoplastic mudguards, Dawes Cushioned Hybrid saddles, micro-adjustable seat posts, and alloy pedals with rubber inlays, the Dawes Discovery Twin is as comfortable as it is enjoyable.

  • Formed 6061 aluminium tandem hybrid frame and rigid steel oversized tandem unicrown fork
  • Shimano M360/TX51 24-speed gearset with EZ-Fire shifters
  • Tektro alloy linear spring V-type brakes with Shimano levers
  • 26" alloy double-wall wheels with CNC-milled sides, quick-release hubs, and Kenda Kenda 26" x 1.95" hybrid tyres
  • Full chromoplastic mudguards, Dawes Cushioned Hybrid saddles with micro-adjustable posts, and alloy pedals with rubber inlays

Our Verdict

Perfect for leisurely afternoon rides with your favourite cycling partner, the Dawes Discovery Twin is a tandem road bike designed with the same hybrid lines of the Dawes Discovery range.
